“Zombie Slay” was the brainchild of Metalcore’s hottest rising stars, The Devil Wears Prada, and was the next logical step to follow the success of the band’s Zombie EP and its accompanying limited-edition comic book, “Zombie, The Comic!,” both released in 2010.  The “Zombie” comic book was penned by “Day by Day Armageddon – A Zombie Novel” writer JL Bourne, and illustrated by Kevin Mellon who also produced the artwork for “Zombie Slay.”  The band and its management team, Fly South Music Group, enlisted the Orlando-based mobile development company, Echo Interaction Group, to build and develop the “Zombie Slay” game.

“Zombie Slay,” featuring all five songs from the Zombie EP, challenges gamers to survive and save survivors in a post-apocalyptic world by killing as many zombies as possible.  The game offers a range of difficulty levels, realistic city and suburban locations, a variety of zombies to eradicate, gamer achievement levels and a cache of weapons that can be upgraded with accumulated points on all levels.  It also features randomly-generated gameplay at all levels that challenges both casual and hardcore gamers and promotes return-to-game play, an OpenFeint interface that enables players to compete against each other anywhere in the world, and social integration.  Fans can receive “Zombie Slay” news, updates and other information at www.ZombieSlay.com.

About the original idea and concept for the game, The Devil Wears Prada’s lead vocalist Mike Hranica commented, “When we had the idea to write songs based on the 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 game nerds and we spend a lot of down time on tour playing with games and apps.  If TDWP fans want what we want with this kind of thing, then they should love ‘Zombie Slay.'”

The Devil Wears Prada’s recently-releaesed full-length album, Dead Throne, debuted at #10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums charts, and has already landed on a number of “Best of 2011” lists. The band is currently wrapping up its “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011,” and will resume touring in the New Year with return treks to the UK and South America in February and April, respectively.
