Watch The New Video For “Salt” By The Devil Wears Prada

Watch The New Video For "Salt" By The Devil Wears Prada

The Devil Wears Prada have announced their long-awaited 8th album: Color Decay, out September 16th. 

The Devil Wears Prada’s newest single “Salt” sets the stage for Color Decay. Melodic vocals hover above an otherworldly soundscape before snapping back into a hypnotic hook: “Pour the salt into the wounds, let the rain wash over you.”

“It’s a resignation to suffering,” frontman Mike Hranica notes. “It essentially says, ‘I’m already beaten down, so keep pouring salt into the wound. Why not?’ It’s a realistic reaction. Go ahead. Push me off the edge now.”

Contrast gives art dimension. The juxtaposition of two seemingly disparate elements sparks friction, bringing life to any canvas. The Devil Wears Prada rely on contrast as they nimbly balance metallic turbulence, hardcore spirit, provocatively eloquent lyricism, and melodic exorcism. In between these opposing extremes, the band—Mike Hranica [vocals], Jeremy DePoyster [guitar, vocals], Kyle Sipress [guitar], Jonathan Gering [keys, synths, programming, production], Giuseppe Capolupo [drums], and Mason Nagy [bass]—have fashioned an ever-evolving signature style buttressed by layers of sonic hues. Such dynamic divergence defines the group’s eighth full-length offering, Color Decay.

“It’s about contrast,” observes Mike. “We’ve really tried to create individualism within the songs and make them distinct. The title references the disintegration and discoloration we experience from daily struggles. Those feelings come with mental health, getting older, and dealing with it. We confront these fights over a lengthy period of time. This record goes up and down, which I’ve always liked for an LP. You will want to listen to it from front-to-back.”

“There’s a focus to the album we haven’t had in a very long time,” Jeremy states. “Coming out of the last 2 years, we’ve reflected on what is important to us—playing in this group and performing live. This record proves we’re not going anywhere. In our minds, we’re very focused on continuing to deliver the best possible music we can.”

“We fought so hard for this, and this album represents where we’re at now,” Mike adds. “We’ll die on the hill of being The Devil Wears Prada. I believe you can define our band by Color Decay.”
