The Devil Wears Prada have premiered ‘Nightfall’, the opening track from their “ZII” EP. That outing is the follow-up to their 2010 release, “Zombie” and is headed for a May 21st release date. You can hear it live much sooner however, as this Saturday, May 15th, will see the group perform “ZII” in full with tickets available through ziiundeadstream.com.

Vocalist Mike Hranica commented:

“Sonically, I think ‘Nightfall‘ is a celebration of what the band did for a long while. I remember that it’s the first song I completed vocally and I know that it’s straightforward — very much straightforward. Lyrically, an atmosphere is created concerning the attack rather than the anatomic details of the undead themselves. It’s a thumper with no introduction to kick off the EP.”

According to City News ServiceAs I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis has been sued by a woman who claims she suffered second-degree burns when he sprayed a flammable liquid into a fire pit at his parents’ house at the end of last year.

The incident occurred on December 12, 2020 when Vivienne Barcena was allegedly standing near the fire pit and Lambesis squirted an accelerant into it, causing flames to “explode out” and up her arm, back and mid-section.

Lambesis‘s parents were also named as defendants in the lawsuit, which as filed last week in a San Diego Superior Court.

Tim himself sustained burns to 25 percent of his body in the incident, which he first revealed in an Instagram post on December 16, 2020. At the time, the 40-year-old singer claimed that he was pouring gas into a bonfire when the top slipped off and the liquid ended up getting all over his clothes. He later said that he lost 20 pounds from being bedridden for almost three weeks and suffered some nerve damage. He also assured fans that his “man parts” were not harmed during the incident.

Evanescence and Halestorm are returning to the concert stage in the U.S. this fall. Produced by Live Nation, the tour will kick off Friday, November 5 in Portland, Oregon, and take the bands to arenas across the country before wrapping up in the Northeast right before the holidays.

The tour will bring together two of the top women in rock — Amy Lee and Lzzy Hale — for a truly badass experience night after night. Close friends as well as close collaborators, just last year, Lzzy performed back-up vocals on Evanescence‘s “rollicking non-partisan protest song” (MTV) ‘Use My Voice’ and Amy joined Lzzy on a new version of Halestorm‘s ‘Break In’. In addition to new music and the biggest hits from both women, the shows will highlight their personal bond and the music that’s come of it.

Amy said: “Words can’t express how excited we are to go back on tour with our friends and rock out again. We’ve been building this new music in isolation for over a year and dreaming of what it will be like to finally play it live, and to experience it together with our fans for the first time. We can’t wait to see you there!”
