“Planet A” – In Space, Everyone Can Hear You Scream
August 21, 2010 — The Devil Wears Prada has premiered the first video from the band’s concept EP “Space,” that is released today, Friday, August 21. The track, “Planet A,” tells the story of Elizabeth, an interstellar explorer who captains a starship through the galaxies, subsequently suffering a horrible malfunction that sets the stage for the rest of the EP.

The Devil Wears Prada’s choice of directors was unorthodox for a metal core band, choosing Casey Pierce who directed Torres’ videos “Strange Hellos” and “Sprinters.” But then Prada’s artist approach has always been indie-minded, challenging creative boundaries whenever possible. As Noisey wrote in yesterday’s video premiere, “[the video] gets wildly abstract, a continuation in the band’s attention to detail when it comes to visuals. One take can even be the journey into space representing birth, survival and inevitable demise. Or like, cool space shit.”
The Devil Wears Prada’s “Space” EP, released today, is a six-track collection of thematic songs that each explores a different point of view of space and those things that exist outside of the Earth’s province – the sun, the moon, aliens, asteroids, and the interstellar space explorer. And of course, all songs are Prada’s signature post-hardcore. “Space” is TDWP’s second EP, the first, 2010’s critically-acclaimed “Zombies,” was a Top 10 Billboard hit. TDWP has graced the covers of Alternative Press, Revolver, AMP, HM, and Outburn, and continues to be at the forefront of a movement that bridges the gap between Mayhem and the Van’s Warped Tour.
