TDWP Set To Release 'Zombie' EP In August
July 7, 2010
They've just had the most successful year of their career - covers of Revolver, Alternative Press, Outburn, AMP and HM, played the Main Stage at Warped Tour, plus the Sounds of the Underground tour, saw their third album, 'With Roots Above and Branches Below', debut at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Charts and was nominated for a Golden God Award. So, what is The Devil Wears Prada going to do now? Release their first-ever EP, the conceptual 'Zombie' EP on August 24 (Ferret Music) what else? (http://www.tdwpslays.com)

Fans can pre-order 'Zombie' EP at http://tdwp.merchnow.com/products/118686 and http://tdwp.merchnow.com/products/118685

"The whole thing is just completely based upon zombies," explained TDWP's front man Mike Hranica. "Last fall, I was on a real zombie kick, I read "The Zombie Survival Guide" by Max Brooks, and I thought, 'what if we made a zombie song?' All it took was me just saying that to the band, and we had our hearts set on doing this EP."

'Zombie' EP is an extremely heavy record that includes songs such as "Survivor," that follows the plight of a man who loses his beloved to the undead and ultimately, in surviving the zombie plague, spends his days warding off the brain-starved and loneliness. The story continues to unfold with the tracks "Outnumbered," "Escape," "Revive," and "Anatomy." Serious TDWP fans will note that the 'Zombie' EP song titles are straight-ahead and serious, unlike the "joke" titles that the band's full-length CDs have been known to feature - "Reptar, King of the Ozone" from 2007's 'Plagues', as an example.

"The sound is definitely The Devil Wears Prada, but so much more," Hranica continues. "It's sinister and bad-ass." Guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster agrees, maintaining that 'Zombie' EP is faster than anything TDWP has done before. "It's going to be sick," said DePoyster. "It's us, but it's more Hatebreed-influenced and just straight-up thrash metal-influenced with some serious Slayer riffs."

The release of 'Zombie' EP will be preceded by a major Summer tour, with TDWP playing some of the biggest venues of their career, and multiple nights in some of the smallest, 25,000 screaming kids one nigt, and 250 hot and sweaty fans the next. The "Back To The Roots" tour, in partnership with Rockstar Energy Drink, kicked off last week and will go through to the Labor Day weekend.

"We wanted to go back to our roots," said Hranica, "play little hole-in-the-wall places where fans can be right there in front of the stage, where we can hand someone a mic and really have the fans be an active part of the show, not behind a barrier ten feet away."

The Devil Wears Prada Announce N. American Headline Tour
April 7, 2010
This summer, Rockstar Energy Drink partners with one of the brightest rising stars in the metalcore world, The Devil Wears Prada, who will play the biggest venues of their career, and probably the smallest. Twenty-five thousand screaming kids one night, then 250 hot and sweaty fans the next. A much-anticipated venture for a band that regularly plays to sold-out crowds of 1500-2500.

Voted 2009's Band of the Year by the readers of Alternative Press, The Devil Wears Prada will tour relentlessly this summer, interspersing performances at ten major, outdoor festivals with multiple nights headlining small, intimate clubs.

The "Back to the Roots" club dates will kick off on Monday, June 28 with the first of two nights at The Basement in Columbus, OH, and play 40+ "roots" shows through to the end of August. Joining TDWP on all "Back to the Roots" dates will be Miss May I and Your Demise. Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 10 and can be purchased through The Devil Wears Prada's website or Myspace page.

"One of the primary elements of the 'Back to the Roots Tour'," Hranica added, "is playing a few Dear Love songs that we have not played in a long time, and probably will not play again or anytime soon. We have not built the precise set list yet, and I know it will not entirely be composed of older Dear Love songs, but there will definitely be more in there than what we usually do."

One highly-anticipated stop on TDWP's summer trek will be their career-first show in Tokyo on August 8. The band will be part of the lineup for 2010's Summer Sonic Tokyo Festival at Marine Stadium, playing in front of their biggest audience ever - 60,000 people. Most of the band's U.S. festival performances will be at Christian music festivals (all members of the band are Christians) and will include Ohio's Alive 10 Festival (23,000), Milwaukee's Summerfest (10,000), Cornerstone Farm in Georgia (15,000), and Minnesota's Sonshine Festival (20,000). The complete, combined itinerary is below.

The major summer festivals and "Back to the Roots" tour will come on the heels of the band's first-ever headline tour of South America in May, and will be in support of their latest album, 'With Roots Above and Branches Below'. Released in May, 2009, the album debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart and set off a series of events that lead to a huge break-out year: slots on the Warped Tour Main Stage, the Rockstar Taste of Chaos and Sounds of the Underground festivals, co-headlining the November/December, 27-date Napalm & Noise Tour, main support on the just-completed Killswitch Engage Tour, and cover features in Outburn, HM, AMP, Revolver and Alternative Press.
