The Devil Wears Prada announce 2012 UK dates - tickets on sale now/ Monday 28th Nov
In the interests of clarity, this article has nothing to do with the 2006 isn't-fashion-exciting Hollywood offering of the same name, starring the versatility of Meryl Streep and the dinner plate eyes of Anne Hathaway. No, what we have here is something altogether more thrilling - one of America's most exciting metalcore outfits.
Formed in Dayton, Ohio, in 2005 as a Christian rock band, and named after the book (remember them?) of the same name by Lauren Weisberger, The Devil Wears Prada released their debut record, 'Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord', in 2006.
However, it wasn't until the release of 'Plagues' a year later that 'TDWP' started to gain widespread recognition. The second LP hit No 6 on the US indie chart. The two subsequent records, including this year's 'Dead Throne', have both topped the indie countdown.
Lead vocalist Mike Hranica said that the new record, released in September, would feature the 'beefy, heavy songwriting' showcased on their 2010 EP, 'Zombie'. Any scepticism as to how the heavier style might be received was dispelled when 'Dead Throne' not only topped the indie chart but also broke into the Top Ten of the main Billboard chart.
TDWP remain a band very much in the ascendancy and, with their fourth album attracting interest this side of the pond, they have announced plans to spread their message to the UK next year.
The Devil Wears Prada will play dates in Cardiff on 2nd February, with further dates in Stoke-on-Trent, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Birmingham, Plymouth, Southampton, Brighton, Oxford and finally London's Underworld on 17th February.
With the exception of Newcastle and Oxford, tickets are now on sale, priced £13 regionally, £14 for London. Tickets for Newcastle and Oxford go on sale on Monday 28th November at 9AM.
