Making the highest chart debut of their career, The Devil Wears Prada sees their “Zombie EP” (Ferret) enter the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #10, with nearly 25,000 copies sold (w/e 9/11/10).  The EP also debuted in the Number One position on the Billboard Hard Music chart, and at #2 on Billboard’s Independent Chart.

In addition to the spectacular chart figures, “Zombie EP” is now the largest pre-sale item at MerchNow, the band’s online fulfillment center.

“This is just awesome,” said TDWP’s Mike Hranica, “and so much more than we could have expected.  We’re not an arena band, we’re not a radio band, we’re an indie metal band who made a conceptional EP – and one about Zombies – so to have received this kind of recognition on the Billboard charts, well, it’s just pretty awesome.”

But the success for TDWP’s “Zombie EP” doesn’t stop there, as “Zombie EP” has received rave reviews:  “…’Zombie EP’ is a must-have…” “…some of The Devil Wears Prada’s best material…” “…faster and heavier than ever before…” “…a bold testament at how creativity drives an artist…” “Do yourself a favor and get this EP, you will not be disappointed” – among them.

The Devil Wears Prada completes its 48-date, completely sold-out U.S. “Back to the Roots” tour this weekend with a special appearance at the Revelation Generation @ Revelation Farms festival and then heads off to Australia and New Zealand for a two-week tour that begins  September 17.

HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
