Roadrunner Records has announced the release of the long awaited label debut from The Devil Wears Prada. 8:18 – which follows 2011’s breakthrough, DEAD THRONE – arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September 17.
The Devil Wears Prada officially unveiled the start of pre-orders for 8:18 with a direct video invitation to their fans around the world, streaming now at their official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/TDWP. All pre-orders at tdwpband.com receive instant free MP3 downloads of two new tracks, “Home for Grave” and “Martyrs.” Pre-orders are also available now on the iTunes Store.
“Martyrs,” the first track/video from 8:18, had its premiere earlier today exclusively via RollingStone.com. Produced by The Devil Wears Prada, the clip was shot and edited by the band’s own Jeremy DePoyster and Andy Trick.
Furthermore, The Devil Wears Prada have announced details of an upcoming North American headline tour. The 8:18 Tour, which will see the band accompanied by The Ghost Inside, Volumes and Texas In July, gets underway November 2 in Detroit at the Royal Oak Music Theatre and continues through December 20, wrapping in Toronto, ON. Tickets for all dates will be on sale August 2.
Singer Mike Hranica commented, “We’ve loved playing two new songs over the course of this year, and with that being said we’re really excited to debut more material live. For me, 8:18 is meant to reflect a live sense of vocals, so doing another headline tour like this is going to be excellent.” For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.tdwpband.com/tour
Long acclaimed as among one of the most potent and provocative bands in modern American metal, The Devil Wears Prada have made a massive leap forward with the stunning 8:18. The album – executive produced by Killswitch Engage’s Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (Underoath, The Chariot) – sees the band driving their relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to frontman Mike Hranica’s grim, emotional lyricism.
DEAD THRONE made an astonishing chart debut upon its 2011 release, exploding into the #10 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200. Hailed by Kerrang! as “by far the best album the Ohio outfit have yet produced,” the album confirmed The Devil Wears Prada as one of modern metal’s top acts, a status more than matched by their undisputed reputation as a truly incendiary live force. The band have been indefatigable road warriors since their 2005 foundation, performing countless headline dates, festival sets, and multi-artist tours, including last summer’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and Motörhead.
The Devil Wears Prada is: Mike Hranica – vocals * Chris Rubey – lead guitar * Jeremy DePoyster – rhythm guitar, vocals * Andy Trick – bass * Daniel Williams – drums.
