Jasta And Code Orange To Support "Killthrax" Tour

Metalcore forefathers Killswitch Engage and thrash legends Anthrax announced in December that they will hit the road this spring to co-headline a 27-date North American tour, presented by SiriusXM. The bands' itinerary will also include an April 15 appearance at the Texas Independence Festival in Austin, as well as each band headlining two solo shows separate from the double bill.

With Anthrax and KsE rotating the closing slot over the course of the dates, the tour will hit the ground on March 29th in Montclair, NJ and then criss-cross the continent, wrapping up in Boston on May 7th. It was previously announced that The Devil Wears Prada will provide direct support on all dates, and now more openers are being revealed.

Multi-tasking Hatebreed frontman Jamey Jasta will perform solo as Jasta and open the first 10 shows of the tour - including the two Killswitch Engage headline shows that do not feature Anthrax. Pittsburgh's Code Orange, having just released "Forever," will open all of the dates thereafter. Code Orange jumps on the tour on April 11th.

"Anthrax and Killswitch will be a really good blend for fans," said Anthrax's Charlie Benante. "We both play metal, but we play two different forms of the genre. I think fans of both bands are in for a 'Total Explosion of the Senses.'" Added the band's Frank Bello, "This Anthrax/KSE tour is a powerful ball of energy ready to unleash the metal in the U.S." More...

The Devil Wears Prada Joining Anthrax Tour

The Devil Wears Prada will hit the road early in the New Year for a 27-date North American tour as special support to co-headliners Anthrax and Killswitch Engage. The trek, presented by SiriusXM, kicks off at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ on March 29 and will zig-zag the continent, culminating in Boston on May 7.

This tour won't be the first time that TDWP - Mike Hranica (vocals), Jeremy DePoyster (rhythm guitar, vocals), Andy Trick (bass), and Kyle Sipress (lead guitar) - has crossed paths with either band.

Prada toured the U.S. with KsE in 2010, and played with Anthrax on the 2012 Mayhem tour. Additionally, Adam D., KsE's lead guitarist, produced two of Prada's albums - "Dead Throne" (2011) and "8:18" (2013).

"This tour will be a real treat," said Prada's Hranica. "We have an awesome relationship with Adam, he's one of the craziest, most fun dudes we know, and when it comes to thrash and metal, you don't get much bigger names than Anthrax and Killswitch."

The Devil Wears Prada will be putting together a special set for this tour. "I love the idea of going to a show and seeing bands whose music is in the same ballpark, but still different from each others'," Hranica added. "We have our own personal style on the side of metal, so we'll do some of our dark, heavy, noisey songs, but probably stay away from interludes inbetween. We'll have our own footprint on stage each night."

These dates will be in support of Prada's new and sixth full-lenth album, the 11-track "Transit Blues" (Rise Records). More...

The Devil Wears Prada Takes On Gun Violence

On December 2nd, 2015 in San Bernardino, CA, 14 people were killed and 22 seriously injuried in the biggest mass shooting since Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

Eight days later, The Devil Wears Prada's Mike Hranica drove from his Chicago home to meet up with guitarist Kyle Sipress in Kansas City to write and demo new material for what would become the "Transit Blues" album.

Both very much affected by the escalading gun violence the world had been experiencing, "Lock & Load" began to take shape. Check out what Hranica has to say about the song below.

TDWP Explains "To The Key Of Evergreen"

Today, the second "story behind the song" video is released by The Devil Wears Prada and spotlights the track "To The Key of Evergreen." In the video, Mike Hranica talks about the elements that acted as inspiration for the lyrics:

"'To The Key of Evergreen' is a song based off of my favororite love story, a novel called 'Lolita,' by Vladimir Nabokov, specifically in the travels between the narrator and his lover. I wanted to create something along the same lines but also pairing it with my own experiences as of late..."

TDWP Releases New Music Video

The Devil Wears Prada's new video "To The Key of Evergreen" tells a powerful love story that transcends time and space. With inspiration from Mike Hranica's all-time favorite love story, Vladimir Nabokov's "Lolita," the "To The Key of Evergreen" video follows a young man who crosses impossible barriers of dimension and time.

The video was directed by Maria Juranic - who also directed Prada's "First Sight" and "War" videos, as well as Doomtree's "Final Boss." Said Hranica: "Maria was able to distill into the video the love story's warmth and emotion that is apparent in the song's lyrics. Even her first edit blew us out of the water." More...

Report

Chicago Open Air Day One

I've never been to an open air music festival. Mostly since most music fests have only one or two artists who I like and try to jam as many different styles of music into one festival as possible to the point where they have no target audience anymore. Lollapalooza is perhaps the biggest offender in that regard to he point where it appeals to both everyone and nobody simultaneously. But thankfully Chicago finally got a metal festival of its own to compensate for a lot of the directionless festivals that the city is known for that have kept me at bay for so long.

Milwaukee Metalfest closed up around a decade ago so Chicago getting a heavy metal festival was (literally) music to my ears. The Rust Belt had nothing in the way of metal festivals and the only other big metal fests have been Rocklahoma, Maryland Deathfest, New England Metal and Hardcore Fest and 70,000 Tons of Metal. As somebody who doesn't live within driving distance from Oklahoma, Maryland, Massachusetts or Florida, I was incredibly excited for something to hit the Midwest as it was long overdue.

But the part that got me most excited was the potential for the future. Specifically a future where artists who only do festivals and mini-tours can finally hit a big outdoor stage and do so in my hometown. Think Anaal Nathrakh, Samael, Ihsahn, Pig Destroyer and Zardonic being able to not only play a real festival show in the Midwest but also be introduced to a whole new audience who would be coming for the far more mainstream headliner. At the very least, the fest could use some less obscure second stage openers and some more foreign bands who haven't come to America for years like Primordial, Vreid or Orphaned Land. But for a brand new festival, the lineup wasn't bad by any means, particularly when it came to headliners. It's a possible future outlet for all the cool stuff that I would never otherwise get to see in coming years which is what got me psyched more than anything else.

I waited in the mother of all lines upon arriving on Friday for a full 90 minutes. Everyone wanted to be in early to catch the opening band on the opening day of the inaugural festival. And the person in front of me was the evil doppelganger of a friend of mine from college. Same body. Same haircut. Same facial features. Same teeth. It was just completely uncanny, especially since one of them lives in west Iowa and the other in east Nebraska. More...

The Devil Wears Prada Announces New Album

The Devil Wears Prada today unveils the details for sixth full-length album, "Transit Blues," which will arrive October 7th via Rise Records.

This release follows last year's "Space" EP that bowed at #18 on the Billboard Top 200. The band retreated to both Watertown, WI and Sawyer, MI last winter to write "Transit Blues," for the first time living and creating in a shared, full time space.

The Devil Wears Prada re-teamed with "Space" producer Dan Korneff (Pierce The Veil, Motionless in White) in the spring of 2016 to record the 11-track "Transit Blues." Overall, the album reflects themes of transition, separation, and mourning.

"It's like zooming out on a commute," explains vocalist Mike Hranica. "It's the notion of getting from one place to another. Most people go from their homes to work while we go from date to date on tour. Either way, it's the inevitable process of growth and change. There are moments of anger, but the pervading theme is separation. Drawing the full circle, it is separation that is inherent in moving from one place to another."

A video for first single "Daughter" can be seen below, and the track nods to a passion Hranica has yet to properly write about: literature. Specifically, it takes a page from Simone de Beauvoir's novel "The Mandarins."

"It's strange," smiles Hranica. "I will write EPs based on subjects that aren't super close to my heart like 'Zombie' or 'Space' because it opens the door for me to make my own stories based off the topics. When we did 'Transit Blues,' it was only natural to incorporate fiction. 'Daughter' is the most forthright example." More...

Mike Hranica Releases New Book

Mike Hranica, vocalist/lyricist for the metalcore band The Devil Wears Prada, will see his third book released today. Entitled "Three Dots & The Guilt Machine," the book is, according to Hranica, "a five year compilation of poetry, prose, and general nonsense...a collection of writing that rarely finishes its breath. A hundred fifty-something pages of what one might consider eclectic truth fiction."

In addition to Amazon, the book will also be available on the band's upcoming "Apollo X" fall North American tour. Hranica's first book, "One & A Half Hearts," published in 2013, takes a subjective look at the story behind the lyrics from "Dead Throne," Prada's 2011 album.

The Devil Wears Prada will co-headline the "Apollo X" tour this fall with Motionless In White, with Upon a Burning Body, The Word Alive and The Color Morale providing support. Confirmed dates are below. More...
