The past two years have probably been the craziest for TDWP, with last year’s much anticipated “Back to the Roots Tour” (where the band played selections from Dear Love with the intention of retiring them from their set), the group’s signing to Ferret Music (part of the Warners/Roadrunner/ILG distribution chain) and the release of the false-idol themed Zombie EP.
It was all just a prelude to the September 2011 release of Dead Throne, TDWP’s most brutal and most successful album to date.
Fueled by overwhelmingly positive critical response, Dead Throne hit the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 chart, but went all the way to No. 1 on the Christian and Independent charts and No. 3 on the Rock and Hard Rock charts.
Perhaps the most amazing aspect of The Devil Wears Prada’s success during the past six years is the fact that the band has never compromised its core spiritual values to attain commercial acceptance in the Metal scene. In an increasingly disposable world, The Devil Wears Prada has stayed steadfastly true to their Christian beliefs while accruing an ardent fan base that has embraced TDWP’s sound and accepted their message, an impressive feat by any measure.
