The Devil Wears Prada Announce “Back To The Roots” Tour

Any fan of music loves when a band says:

We want to go back to our roots, play little hole-in-the-wall places where fans can be right there in front of the stage, where we can hand someone a mic and really have the fans be an active part of the show, not behind a barrier ten feet away.”  — TDWP’s Mike Hranica

The Devil Wears Prada are gearing up to play the biggest venues of their career, and probably the smallest.  Twenty-five thousand screaming kids one night, then 250 hot and sweaty fans the next – the band will tour relentlessly this summer, interspersing performances at ten major, outdoor festivals with multiple nights headlining small, intimate clubs.

The “Back to the Roots” club dates will kick off on Monday, June 28 with the first of two nights at The Basement in Columbus, OH, and play 40+ “roots” shows through to the end of August.  Joining TDWP on all “Back to the Roots” dates will be Miss May I and Your Demise.  Tickets go on sale Saturday, April 10 and can be purchased through The Devil Wears Prada’s website or MySpace page.  

One of the primary elements of the ‘Back to the Roots Tour’,” Hranica added, “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.”
