The Devil Wears Prada Slay Zombies With New Video Game
It’s a busy year for Ohio metalcore sensations the Devil Wears Prada! Not only did they release their very successful fourth album ‘Dead Throne,’ last month, now they are releasing their own video game, ‘Zombie Slay,’ which will feature all five tracks from the band’s 2010 ‘Zombie EP.’
The concept for ‘Zombie Slay’ was created by the Devil Wears Prada. The game is a single person, multi-level challenge for mobile devices in which players have to kill as many zombies as possible in a post-apocalyptic world in order to save themselves and others.
TDWP frontman Mike Hranica says in a press release, “When we had the idea to write songs based on Zombie chaos, one of the enticing side effects was being able to do cool stuff outside of the EP itself. We’ve always liked the idea of offering our fans something really unique. We’re all a bunch of Apple nerds and we spend a lot of down time on tour playing with games and apps.”
Carlos Carbonell, CEO and co-founder of Echo stated, “We were thrilled to work with the Devil Wears Prada and Fly South Music Group on a truly innovative game that is going to change how the music industry approaches their mobile strategies in the future.”
The “Zombie Slay” game is available immediately for $1.99 through iTunes for devices such as the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Availability for Android phones is expected in the near future. Gamers can also receive updates and check out more details on the game at ZombieSlay.com.
Fans of the Devil Wears Prada can play ‘Zombie Slay’ as they wait for the band to embark on a North American tour in November and December.
