IN FLAMES comments, “In Flames strikes back!!! After a nice but curtailed summer mayhem, we will return to American soil with full force. Expect riffs, sweat and beers so tasty that you're ready to give up everything and move to Gothenburg. Just to have another fix...”

Matt Heafy of TRIVIUM adds, "Trivium can't wait to get out again on the road with In Flames. They are one of our all time favorite bands and together we plan on giving our best shows to the fans."

IN FLAMES’ new album Sounds Of A Playground Fading was released on June 15th via Century Media Records and debuted at an impressive #27 on the Top 200 Billboard Charts selling 13,842 copies in its first week.

The Devil Wears Prada at The RITZ Ybor on December 2, 2011

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA ANNOUNCES DATES FOR “DEAD THRONE TOUR: NORTH AMERICA 2011” & WILL PERFORM AT THE RITZ YBOR ON FRIDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2011
Dates Are In Support of the Band’s New Album, Dead Throne, Out September 13


LOS ANGELES, CA – Fresh off the 2011 Warped Tour and armed with what the UK’s Metal Hammer called the band’s “most ferocious release to date,” rising metalcore darlings The Devil Wears Prada announces “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011” the first North American leg of the band’s 2011 – 2012 worldwide tour. The 37-date headline trek kicks off on November 3 in Milwaukee and will criss-cross the U.S. and Canada over a six-week period. “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011” will feature Whitechapel, Enter Shikari, and For Today on all dates. Tickets go on sale Friday morning, September 2 at 10am at www.theritzybor.com. Log onto DeadThrone.com for ticket purchasing information.

The “Dead Throne Tour “ will come on the heels of the band’s October headline trek through Australia that kicks off October 20 in Perth, taking the band to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, and Brisbane.

These North American dates are in support of TDWP’s fourth album, the highly-anticipated Dead Throne (Ferret), produced by Killswitch Engage mad genius Adam Dutkiewicz, and set for a September 13 release. With Dead Throne, the band – front man Mike Hranica, guitarist and clean vocalist Jeremy DePoyster, guitarist Chris Rubey, bassist Andy Trick, keyboardist James Baney and drummer Daniel Williams – has turned a corner by turning up the aggression and turning on the emotions. The new album erupts with what TDWP has merely hinted at in the past – it is a brilliant, emotional, captivating and brutal journey that tackles issues of failed relationships and the perseverance of faith.

“We aim to give listeners and fans something they can enjoy, but we’ll also always make songs we personally stand behind,” said Hranica. “We’d write differently if we were purely trying to sell albums, that’s just not how it works for us. No compromises.”

The upward trajectory of TDWP escalated with the success of 2009’s With Roots Above and Branches Below, which debuted at #11 on the Billboard Top 200 chart, and set off a series of events that lead to a huge break-out year. TDWP was voted Band of the Year by the readers of Alternative Press, went on to appear on the covers of AltPress, Revolver, Outburn, HM, and AMP, and sold out dates around the world. In 2010, they received a Golden God Award nomination, and released their first-ever EP, the conceptual Zombie EP, that gave them their highest-ever chart debut, coming in at #10 on Billboard’s Top 200, and rave reviews.

Dates for The Devil Wears Prada’s “Dead Throne Tour: North America 2011” are as follows:

NOVEMBER
3 The Rave, Milwaukee, WI
6 House of Blues, Chicago, IL
7 Epic, Minneapolis, MN
8 The Garrick, Winnipeg, MB CANADA
10 Edmonton Events Center, Edmonton, AB CANADA
