“I refuse to have a bad show, and I will do literally anything to make that not happen.”

Jeremy DePoyster

U.S metalcore outfit The Devil Wears Prada have had a golden run when it comes to touring this country.

When they last came out with Polaris in 2017 demand for tickets was so high that the Sold Out sign was up far more than it was down, and within one week of announcing August’s Half Living Things Tour with Alpha Wolf, The Devil Wears Prada, Invent Animate and thrown organisers were left in the same conundrum.

Which is a healthy position to be in given the sudden influx of international touring bands to this side of the world.

After releasing their last album Color Decay in 2022, The Devil Wears Prada spent much of their time on the promotional trail, returning this year with fresh music in the form of Ritual and a new version of Reasons. The two tracks hint at a new era for the band, which is reinforced by guitarist/singer Jeremy DePoyster when we spoke with him earlier in the week.

“I feel like we’ve been rejuvenated a little bit,” he measured. “We just did our biggest headline tour ever in the States. We did two legs of it because the first one was so nuts. Then we just got off tour with LANDMVRKS in Europe, and those were the biggest shows we’ve played in Europe. We just feel a youthful energy, like back when we were on the Warped Tour. There’s just a fire under our butts for some reason, so it feels like a new era for us right now, and we’re trying to storm the castle a little bit and see what’s going on in there.”

In the full interview, Jeremy talks about his preparation for the run of shows, the history between The Devil Wears Prada and Alpha Wolf, having Invent Animate and thrown on the bill and what they bring to the dynamics, selling out consecutive tours, what has changed with the band since they were last out here, the two singles released this year and how they represent the future of The Devil Wears Prada, other plans and more.
