Roadrunner Records has announced its signing of The Devil Wears Prada. Deeply-rooted as one of the most potent and powerful bands in modern American metal, The Devil Wears Prada will make their label debut with an as-yet-untitled new LP, executive produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage, with producer/engineer Matt Goldman, expected to arrive fall 2013.

Mike Hranica, front man of The Devil Wears Prada said, "We've put so much time into the new songs already, and we're really happy where things are sitting. I think with Roadrunner in the picture, it's only more encouraging as far as compiling a record that we can be proud of and a record that exists well as DEAD THRONE's successor."

The Devil Wears Prada is heralding the announcement with a nationwide co-headline trek with As I Lay Dying. The highly anticipated run gets underway February 22nd at Ventura, California's Majestic Ventura Theater Half House and then continues through early April (see attached itinerary). The Devil Wears Prada and As I Lay Dying will be accompanied on the epic tour by For Today, The Color Morale (February 22nd - March 7th), and The Chariot (March 8th - April 4th). Following the group's U.S. run, The Devil Wears Prada will head overseas for a series of European festival dates. For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.tdwpband.com/tour.

Furthermore, Mike Hranica has released his brand new book, One & Half Hearts, a collection of inspirations behind the group's breakout record DEAD THRONE. One & Half Hearts looks back on the creation of DEAD THRONE with an in-depth exploration of its lyrical context. Copies of One & Half Hearts are available now at www.mikehranica.com, www.tdwpstore.com, www.amazon.com and will be available for purchase on the band's upcoming tour.

The Devil Wears Prada's 2011 breakthrough, DEAD THRONE, debuted at #10 on the Billboard Top 200 and cemented the group as one of the most electrifying acts in modern metal. An incendiary live force, the band has proven relentless road warriors. In addition to countless headline dates and festival sets, recent highlights include spending summer 2012 alongside Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and the one and only Motörhead on the all-star Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

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