THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA LAUNCHES TWENTY-TEN WITH DIRECT SUPPORT SPOT ON KILLSWITCH ENGAGE U.S. TOUR

The Devil Wears Prada, whose blistering signature sound combined with a Biblical brutality has made them “the next big thing,” according to Absolute Punk, will join Killswitch Engage on their Winter U.S. tour as direct support beginning Thursday, February 4, 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts. Sweden’s Dark Tranquility will open on all dates, and the tour will keep the threesome on the road over a six-week-plus period.

The Devil Wears Prada – vocalist Mike Hranica, guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster, guitarist Chris Rubey, bassist Andy Trick, keyboardist James Baney, and Daniel Williams on drums – is touring in support of their critically-acclaimed CD, With Roots Above and Branches Below (Ferret Records), which was released May 5, 2009. Two-thousand nine has proven to be a breakthrough year for the young Christian metalcore band that has developed a mainstream buzz and secular cred. Beginning with a 43-date, completely sold out headline tour this past Spring, TDWP went on to a Main Stage slot on the Vans Warped Tour, and is currently co-headlining (with All that Remains) the 27-date Napalm & Noise tour, which wraps up December 21 in Allentown, PA. Over the past few months, TDWP also found themselves on the covers of Outburn, Alternative Press, HM and AMP, to name a few, and covers for at least two other national music magazines are set for early next year.

Live, the six-piece The Devil Wears Prada presents a powerful intensity that many other metalcore bands never quite achieve, with savage riffs, bulldozing guitar, thunderous beats, manic synths, and an assault of abrasive vocals. On this tour, the band will perform songs from all three of their releases – 2006’s Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord, 2007’s Plagues, and the new With Roots Above and Branches Below, including the video track, “Danger: Wildman,” which can be viewed here.
