THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA ANNOUNCE UK TOUR FOR FEBRUARY 2012!
Posted on November 26, 2011Armed with what Metal Hammer called the band’s “most ferocious release to date”, rising metalcore darlings, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA are set to return to the UK for their own headline tour, the “Vans Off The Wall Music Tour Presents THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA’s Dead Throne Tour UK.” The dates are in support of “Dead Throne”, the band’s first album for Roadrunner, which was hailed as an uncompromising release, marking the Ohio six-piece turning a corner and taking confident steps to the next level. It charted at No. 10 in the Billboard 200 charts. Rock Sound gave it 9/10 and commented “Dead Throne is accomplished, deft and unbelievably powerful from start to finish. It will flummox few, intrigue many and cement The Devil Wears Prada’s reputation as a band that are most definitely capable of greatness.”
It has not been quiet on the tour front either, TDWP have racked up multiple European and UK tours already this year, including a main stage appearance at Download Festival and a tour with Bring Me The Horizon. They are currently headlining major markets in the US and Canada with support acts Enter Shikari, Whitechapel, and For Today.
The 12 date tour kicks off in Cardiff and ends at Camden Underworld in London. Support acts are still to be announced. Tickets go on sale Friday November 25th. Kerrang recently described "Dead Throne" as, "bursting with riffs that would turn your insides to mush”.

Singer Mike Hranica says “We aim to give listeners and fans something they can enjoy, but we’ll also always make songs we personally stand behind. We’d write differently if we were purely trying to sell albums, that’s just not how it works for us. No compromises.”
THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA are: Frontman Mike Hranica, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster, guitarist Chris Rubey, bassist Andy Trick, keyboardist James Baney, and drummer Daniel Williams.
They’ve appeared on the covers of Outburn, HM, AMP, Revolver and Alternative Press. “We’re lucky that we’ve had the success that we’ve had sounding the way we do,” DePoyster notes.
