ILL NIÑO have just posted a new album preview stream on the VICTORY RECORDS YouTube page, teasing their upcoming October 25th release, Dead New World. Head over to the page now to hear clips of new tracks! The band also recently announced their new single, ‘Against the Wall’. Fans can purchase the new single now on iTunes, or can stream the entire track at the VICTORY RECORDS YouTube page.
“What up ILL NINO Army! I just want to say how proud we are of Dead New World, this CD has all the raw energy, tribal essence, Latin grooves, and brutality that our debut release Revolution…Revolucion was made of,” affirms ILL NIÑO drummer Dave Chavarri. “We have set up an album stream for Dead New World to let everyone preview how strong this VICTORY release will be for us.
”This is just the beginning,” continues Chavarri. “In the next two weeks, we will be releasing our video for our 1st single ‘Against the Wall’, which was directed by Scott Hansen (A Day To Remember, The Devil Wears Prada, Willie Nelson). The ‘Against the Wall’ single has received 73 radio ads in the Active Rock and College radio formats in the 1st week of release! We are also in the process of finalizing, and about to announce a 5 week U.S. Tour in support of Dead New World. See you all soon, and we can’t wait to hit the road in support of Dead New World.”

“The whole thing is just completely based upon zombies,” explained the band’s frontman Mike Hranica.
“Last fall, I was on a real zombie kick, I read ‘The Zombie Survival Guide’ by Max Brooks, and I thought, ‘What if we made a zombie song?’ All it took was me just saying that to the band, and we had our hearts set on doing this EP.”
The “Zombie” EP is an extremely heavy record that includes songs such as “Survivor” that follows the plight of a man who loses his beloved to the undead and ultimately, in surviving the zombie plague, spends his days warding off the brain-starved and loneliness. The story continues to unfold with the tracks “Outnumbered“, “Escape”, “Revive” and “Anatomy“. Serious THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA fans will note that the “Zombie” EP songtitles are straight-ahead and serious, unlike the “joke” titles that the band’s full-length CDs have been known to feature — “Reptar, King of the Ozone” from 2007′s “Plagues“, as an example.
“The sound is definitely THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, but so much more,” Hranica continues. “It’s sinister and bad-ass.” Guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster agrees, maintaining that the “Zombie” EP is faster than anything THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has done before. “It’s going to be sick,” said DePoyster. “It’s us, but it’s more HATEBREED-influenced and just straight-up thrash metal-influenced with some serious SLAYER riffs.”
The release of the “Zombie” EP will be preceded by a major summer tour with THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA playing some of the biggest venues of its career, and multiple nights in some of the smallest — 25,000 screaming kids one night, and 250 hot and sweaty fans the next. The “Back To The Roots” tour, in partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink, kicked off last month and will go through to the Labor Day weekend.
“We wanted to go back to our roots,” said Hranica, “play little hole-in-the-wall places where fans can be right there in front of the stage, where we can hand someone a mic and really have the fans be an active part of the show, not behind a barrier ten feet away.”
