THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA Announces North American Tour

Fresh off the 2011 Warped Tour and armed with what the U.K.’s Metal Hammer called the band’s “most ferocious release to date,” rising metalcore darlings THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA announce “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011”, the first North American leg of the band’s 2011 – 2012 worldwide tour. The 37-date headline trek kicks off on November 3 in Milwaukee and will criss-cross the U.S. and Canada over a six-week period. “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011” will feature WHITECHAPEL, ENTER SHIKARI, and FOR TODAYon all dates.

The “Dead Throne Tour” will come on the heels of the band’s October headline trek through Australia that kicks off October 20 in Perth, taking the band to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.

These North American dates are in support of THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA‘s fourth album, the highly-anticipated “Dead Throne” (Ferret), produced by KILLSWITCH ENGAGE mad genius Adam Dutkiewicz, and set for a September 13 release. With “Dead Throne”, the band — frontman Mike Hranica, guitarist and clean vocalist Jeremy DePoyster, guitarist Chris Rubey, bassist Andy Trick, keyboardist James Baney and drummer Daniel Williams — has turned a corner by turning up the aggression and turning on the emotions. The new album erupts with what THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has merely hinted at in the past — it is a brilliant, emotional, captivating and brutal journey that tackles issues of failed relationships and the perseverance of faith.

“We aim to give listeners and fans something they can enjoy, but we’ll also always make songs we personally stand behind,” said Hranica. “We’d write differently if we were purely trying to sell albums, that’s just not how it works for us. No compromises.”
