The Dayton, OH-based hardcore/metal band, The Devil Wears Prada, have been raking in stellar reviews of their newest album, 8:18 since, ever since it’s release on September 11, 2013. 9 months later and the quintet continues to tour and interact with press in support of their newest 13 song recording, all the while growing their fanbase and solidifying their presence as a top-tier metal band. TDWP will be performing on this Summer’s Vans Warped Tour with two Canadian dates (July 4th Toronto (Molson Amphitheatre) and July 5th Montreal (Parc Jean Drapeau) and in celebration thereof, we’re pleased to present this exclusive Canadian premiere of the band’s new video for the song “Sailor’s Prayer.”

Originally hailing from Dayton, Ohio, American hardcore/metal band The Devil Wears Prada has recently released a new full-length album entitled 8:18. Considerably darker, the album is wrought with existential and tragic elements. 8:18 includes the track “Gloom” which the band has been playing live for some time now. I had the opportunity to chat with songwriter and screamer, Mike Hranica, while he was in Edmonton, Alberta for their tour promoting 8:18. Hranica talked about the vision for this album, how Christianity plays a role in the band’s music, and the joys of bringing his Aunties and dogs along to ease the pressure and loneliness that comes with recording an album. Read on for an insider perspective on The Devil Wears Prada!

Back in 2010 I reviewed The Devil Wears Prada’s Zombie EP and named it their best album to date… Not long after, they release their new full-length, Dead Throne, and now I have to scratch my previous statement to announce this as their best musical offering yet!

A few things come to mind when you hear the words “The Devil Wears Prada” and generally it’s one of three things… shitty movie, great book or awesome band. Of course I am talking about the band in this case. Album after album, The Devil Wears Prada has been exploding for the past few years; they got immense success after the release of their Zombie EP, a concept album about the zombie apocalypse. I had a chance to sit down with singer and guitarist Jeremy while on a stop in Toronto.

When I was in high school I spent most of my weekends going to shows. When one of my favourite bands was coming to town, I’d comment my excitement to my friends on MySpace and we’d all gather in our skinny-jeaned glory to travel to Toronto. One of the bands that we never missed was The Devil Wears Prada. I had a great time during those days, so I was ecstatic when one of my old friends asked me to go see The Devil Wears Prada open for Silverstein at the Kool Haus in December.

What band has a name similar to a novel and movie? That would be The Devil Wears Prada. Hailing from Ohio, these young-ins have recently given life to five fantastic songs and placed them on an EP titled Zombie. This is the first extended play ever released by TDWP.
