Innerhalb weniger Stunden hatten The Devil Wears Prada gleich zwei News zu vermelden - erst die Unterschrift bei Rise Records ("We're returning to Rise Records with a new concept release, the Space EP - coming this summer"), dann den Weggang von Gitarrist Chris:
Fans, Friends, Listeners-
At the end of October, upon completing our run of shows in Mexico, Chris decided that it was time to stay home and be with his wife and daughter. While losing a founding member might seem to be a bumpy transition to announce, we find ourselves terrifically proud and enthused to continue moving forward with touring and writing new material. The upcoming Space EP is a testament to what we’re capable of and the always truthful fact that TDWP is a collective collaboration rather than any single member or component.
We’re happy to say that parting ways with Chris couldn’t have been more amicable: we understand and wish him the very best at being with his family.
In the meantime, our good friend Kyle is playing with us: a fine gentleman and an excellent guitarist who helped out tremendously in the making of Space EP. The Zombie 5 Tour is off to a fantastic start, and we look forward to seeing all of you at an upcoming show.
Mike & The Pradas
