The Devil Wears Prada Dead Throne Australian Tour 2011


Destroy All Lines, Blunt and present


The Devil Wears Prada are set to return to Australia this October for a rapid fire run of shows in support of their fourth studio album Dead Throne. Michigan’s metal cross post-hardcore outfit We Came As Romans and local juggernauts Dream On Dreamer will complete this impressive package.

Dead Throne, out September 9th on Roadrunner Records, is hailed as the uncompromising release that will mark the Ohio six-piece turning a corner and taking a confident step to the next level. More aggressive, more emotionally charged and sonically larger than previous releases, Dead Throne is characterised by a more pronounced focus on the band’s unique, punishing dual-vocal assault. The Devil Wears Prada’s evolution musically and unwavering technical proficiency is seemingly effortlessly laid out in the razor-sharp, straight-ahead metal tracks that are utterly brilliant not only in their composition, but also in their flawless delivery.

It has not been quiet on the tour front either for The Devil Wears Prada. They have racked up multiple European and UK tours already this year (including a main stage appearance at Download Festival) and notched up a healthy string of US dates, including slaying the main stage on Warped. Witness The Devil Wears Prada‘s renewed conviction when they take to Australian stages once again this October for their biggest Australian headline tour yet.

We Came As Romans made their standout live debut on Australian soil at 2010’s No Sleep Til festivals. In the nine months that have passed the six-piece have been touring tirelessly, building on their already solid fanbase the old fashioned way. Seemingly addicted to the road and stage, the band have only paused long enough to record in brief windows between tours. We Came As Romans returned to Foundation Recording Studio with their longtime friend and producer, Joey Sturgis [Asking Alexandria, Attack Attack!] for their sophomore effort. The new material carries the band’s signature sound of intricate guitar riffs, both mosh-worthy and melodic breakdowns, and the flawless intertwining of dual vocals from David Stephens and Kyle Pavone. Understanding What We've Grown To Be is due for release 16 September via UNFD.

It has been a big year already for young Melbourne band Dream On Dreamer, who will round out the Dead Throne Tour bill this October. Having signed to Powerhouse labels UNFD and Rise Records, they recently released their debut album Heartbound worldwide, reaching #38 on the ARIA Charts and getting the band attention from all over the world. These Australian dates come in between a mass worldwide tour including European, US and Japanese dates in support of the world release of the album.
