Long acclaimed as among one of the most potent and provocative bands in modern American metal, The Devil Wears Prada have made a massive leap forward with the stunning "8:18." The album – executive produced by Killswitch Engage's Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (Underoath, The Chariot) – sees the band driving their relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to frontman Mike Hranica's grim, emotional lyricism.

"DEAD THRONE" made an astonishing chart debut upon its 2011 release, exploding into the #10 position on the SoundScan/Billboard 200. Hailed by Kerrang! as "by far the best album the Ohio outfit have yet produced," the album confirmed The Devil Wears Prada as one of modern metal's top acts, a status more than matched by their undisputed reputation as a truly incendiary live force. The band have been indefatigable road warriors since their 2005 foundation, performing countless headline dates, festival sets, and multi-artist tours, including last summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival featuring Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and Motörhead.

The Devil Wears Prada is: Mike Hranica – vocals * Chris Rubey – lead guitar * Jeremy DePoyster – rhythm guitar, vocals * Andy Trick – bass * Daniel Williams – drums.
