The Devil Wears Prada team up with fellow Christian heavy music bands for 2012 tour
Christian metal-core band the Devil Wears Prada have announced the first dates of their 2012 North American tour. The jaunt — which kicks off March 9 in Bloomington, Ill. — will support the band’s latest full-length, 2011’s “Dead Throne.” Every Time I Die, Christian metal band Oh, Sleeper and Letlive will open. Find the just-announced tour dates, below.
Oh, Sleeper are out backing their 2011 metal release, “Children of Fire.” Frontman Micah Kinard recently told Audio Ink Radio the album is somewhat a concept album. “My background in writing, before I joined this band, was in studying to be a screen writer, and I really like writing stories,” he said. “As far as inspiration goes, I pull inspiration from all sorts of places.
“But, my main inspiration carried through all of the albums is my personal relationship with God and how I see my day-to-day grind with that and how He’s shown me through. That’s where I get most of my inspiration, and I find it easier to articulate that through metaphor rather than put it out blatantly by literal translation. When you put things out in metaphor, it makes it more accessible to a wider array of people. Just because I’m Christian, that doesn’t mean I’m just writing for Christians. I want everybody to be able to relate to the music.”
