The Devil Wears Prada Guitarist Leaves Band

A couple of hours after announcing they had officially resigned with Rise Records for the release of their upcoming new EP, The Devil Wears Prada had the sad task of informing fans that they were down a member.

Taking to Facebook, frontman Mike Hranica revealed that founding member and guitarist Chris Rubey had decided to leave the band.

In the post, he writes that Rubey’s decision to leave the band had been made back in October after they concluded their Mexican tour dates. Rubey explained that he wanted to spend more time with his wife and daughter as opposed to constantly being on the road; a very understandable reason.

Unlike the departure of many founding members, Hrancia reveals that Rubey’s exit “couldn’t be more amicable” and that they already had asked a friend of theirs to fill in his vacancy during the “Zombie 5 Tour” which kicked off this past weekend.

Read the full statement below and keep an eye out for the release date of Space.

The Devil Wears Prada Officially Rejoin Rise Records

image

It’s official, The Devil Wears Prada have rejoined Rise Records.

Last week, the record label (as well as the band) had released a cryptic video that gave no information at all, just the band and label’s logos side by side after some video from space.

Quickly after the video was released, publications and fans alike began to claim that the band had returned to their roots for their new record.

Today, the rumors were confirmed with The Devil Wears Prada frontman, Mike Hranica, releasing a statement on the matter.

“We’re all very confident in working with Rise again,” begins Hrancia.

“The label has grown tremendously since our first release back in 2006, nonetheless we know their intention is still the same as ever and we know it’s a model that will compliment us well. We’re persistently hands-on and love to do exactly as we please, and they’re a great place for us to be able to continue that path while supporting our visions. Rise can be commended, deservedly, for their wholehearted drive at releasing albums they believe in; and it’s that enthusiasm that is both welcoming and exciting for our band moving forward.”

As for the video that was release online last week that started the talks of a reconcile? Turns out, the band are working on a conceptual album titled what else, Space which is set to be released sometime in the Summer. No official release date has been given.

If the reunion with Rise and the announcement of a new album wasn’t enough, the Ohio band just kicked off a double leg, headlining this past Sunday (March 15). Full dates, including the recently added second leg, for that can be seen below.
