The Devil Wears Prada have one less stumbling block out of the way as they move closer to releasing their follow-up to the stellar ‘Dead Throne’ album. The metalcore mavens, who have been in the studio working on new music, just announced that they’ve inked a deal with Roadrunner Records.

Vocalist Mike Hranica says, “We’ve put so much time into the new songs already and we’re really happy where things are sitting. I think with Roadrunner in the picture, it’s only more encouraging as far as compiling a record that we can be proud of and a record that exists well as ‘Dead Throne’s successor.”

Recently speaking about the direction of the new music with Loudwire, Hranica stated, “For me, I definitely feel a little bit of a carry-over from ‘Dead Throne,’ particularly because it was a very cool record for me learning, for me learning to write better and that was working with a new [producer] … working with Adam [Dutkiewicz] for the first time and having [A Day to Remember‘s] Jeremy McKinnon working on some of the songs with us, and I feel I took a lot from that. On ‘Dead Throne’ there were better vocal parts and everything was more cohesive and understandable and made for better song structure and everything and that had had a big impact on me creatively and so it’s definitely carried over into this.”

However, he added that this new album is not ‘Dead Throne, Part 2.’ He explained, “Conceptually, the concepts of ‘Dead Throne’ didn’t carry over. I feel like that would be repetitive and monotonous to keep going at the same subject matter, but obviously it all comes from the same place and I can say that nothing got more happy or uplifting really. So I think it’s very much the Devil Wears Prada but also it’s got a bit of freshness and originality to it and I think that even musically we started approaching the songs differently.”

For the new disc, Killswitch Engage‘s Adam Dutkiewicz returns, but this time as executive producer, with Matt Goldman expected to oversee the production. The still-untitled album is expected this fall. But in the immediate future, fans can catch the band on a co-headlining trek with As I Lay Dying starting later this week. Check here for dates.
