The Devil Wears Prada have come out swinging on First Sight, the latest track to be boosted from their current album 8:18. Any doubt that their partnership with Killswitch Engage’s Adam D as producer wasn’t a perfect match is sure to be removed within 20 seconds of listening to the below jam.
It may sound impossible but Adam D has actually managed to make the post hardcore talents of Prada even more epic. Crazy, right? The track kicks off with absolute chaos, guitars coming out of everywhere and the odd bass drop before everything comes together just in time for the band’s trademark clean chorus.
Placed just 3 tracks into 8:18, First Sight is a promising sign that the album will be a high-octane experience. It won’t be too long before we can get the remainder of the record in our earholes with the Australian release date locked in for Friday, 13th September.
If you haven’t by now, you may want to check out Music Feeds’ podcast interview with drummer Dan Williams prior to the band’s recent jaunt Down Under – you won’t regret it.
