Album: The Devil Wears Prada – The Act

The Act Album

We wanted to do something that actually tests the boundaries, […] You don’t see that in rock, and there’s so little invention in rock these days. With Roots Above to look at it from that perspective was us moving from screamo to metalcore. That was the objective of that record, according to my memory at least. That’s not so much what The Act is. […] I think there are safer options as far as what we could have done with our seventh record, […] We didn’t want to do that. We wanted to do something that tries to avoid the tiredness and nail it in. Being complacent, which I think would have been making the ‘safer’ record, is something that we deeply look to avoid, and by making a record that we think is going to try people or catch them off guard is something we intentionally signed up for. […] To me, The Act feels all-encompassing, and the record doesn’t have commonalities between the songs, so I wanted something that did capture everything, […] It’s also kind of abstract in that The Act refers to anything. It could be referred to as a crime or a sexual act or whatever it might be, so I thought it sucked up all of the songs well. A part of the record that I started with is the idea of being fake, both in a cultural and political sense that we deal with on a daily basis here in 2019. The songs didn’t take that much of a role until they went from the actor to the act. […] Musically speaking, Jon and Kyle wrote the album, so their communication and the way they work together is seamless and fluent, […] We came up with many more songs than we ever have before and scratched a ton of them. It’s been a long time coming as far as [Gering] at the reins as the record’s formal producer. He steered this ship 110% in terms of working with me, Kyle and the rest of the band.
