The Devil Will Wear Prada in Clubs Starting Next Week
Joining The Devil Wears Prada on all "Back to the Roots" dates will be Miss May I and Your Demise.
"One of the primary elements of the 'Back to the Roots Tour'," Hranica explained, "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 follows the band's first-ever headline tour of South America which took place May 8-16, and all dates are in support of the band's most recent 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 recent Killswitch Engage Tour, and cover features in Outburn, HM, AMP, Revolver and Alternative Press. Live, the six-piece The Devil Wears Prada presents a powerful intensity that many other bands never quite achieve, with savage riffs, sinewy guitar melodies, thunderous beats, manic synths and an assault of abrasive vocals.
