What songs will The Devil Wears Prada play in concert?
The Devil Wears Prada have five records to their credit, and each one has slowly evolved their sound into a more melodic and mature style. Their debut was a straightforward scene metal record, so it’s clear the group stays away from that record almost entirely all these years into their career.
The group is earning rave reviews for their current album, 8:18 and dive deep into the album while generally moving around the first half of their set. The first track of the new record, “Gloom”, will often open the show, but at times they’ll open with the deep new album cut, “Sailor’s Prayer.”
Regardless of how they start the show, they pull out close to five songs from their new album. They play heavy hitters “Martyrs” and “Care More” back-to-back, before running into a string of older album cuts.
The band largely ignores their 2009 release, With Roots Above and Branches Below, however they play fan favorite, “Assistant to the Regional Manager,” early in their set.
The band oddly omits their successful ballad “Louder Than Thunder.” It is a slower song, but it is quite gorgeous. Despite its moody atmosphere and dark lyrics, adding it may be ill-fitting since it is one of the only slow songs to have made it out of the studio in their career.
At the end of the day, the band plays nothing from their first two records and lean heavily on their last two. The band returns to their 2009 album with the most common closer, “Danger: Wildman.” They may switch that closer out with “Mammoth” from 2011’s Dead Throne.

What should I expect from a Devil Wears Prada concert?
The Devil Wears Prada has broken out of their initial confines as a scene rock band, and catapulted right into the heart of heavy metal and hardcore. The group draws in an eclectic audience that breaks boundaries in these various niches. As stated above, the show stays away from the slower songs that lay sprinkled throughout their career. The show is blistering, and moshing is not just accepted but demanded from those occupying the center stage.

Who are the opening acts on tour with The Devil Wears Prada?
The Devil Wears Prada are popularly known to bring along a wide number of opening bands. This time, things are no different. Many shows will be accompanied by their previous opening act, As I Lay Dying but this time around, As I Lay Dying is a co-headliner, and the two bands will swap out headlining status each show.
The show is rounded out by newcomers, For Today and the big scene buzz band, The Color Morale. The latter is touring on their third album, and For Today has a face-splattering thirty minute set to present to potentially new fans.
“Ohio-based The Devil Wears Prada stopped by the Kool Haus in Toronto and this group of Christian zombie fanatics surely knew how to throw an awesome metalcore party. The first great move of the evening was to bring along some supporting acts that understood how to get the crowd pumped up and provoke mosh pit upon mosh pit.” – Heino Dossing of the Examiner
“Up close, it wasn’t a face melter, but a brain scorcher as each band carved out aggressive hardcore in front of an audience that wrapped around the walls of the venue and moved in waves. For a gig like this, it’s hard to use words to even describe what exactly took place.” – Joel Pilotte of Blare Magazine
“These guys have an amazing stage presence as they radiated this energy that got everyone in the venue moving during their set. This show felt much more intimate and you could tell that their fans were having a ball as many of them crowd surfed to the front to try and hi-five lead vocalist Mike Hranica.” – Katrina Wong Shue of Live in Limbo
