Concert Preview: The Devils Wears Prada

January 11, 2016

Band Facts

  • 5 full-length albums, 1 live album, and 2 EP’s

The Devil Wears Prada has changed a bit since their founding in 2005. From those early days, they have risen to become one of the top names in metalcore, Christian or otherwise, and have toured with almost all of the top names in the genre. Internally, the most significant change came this past year when one of the founding members, guitarist Chris Rubey, left the band to pursue other interests. In terms of the band’s sound, you can hear their maturation in albums 8:18 and their latest release, The Space EP, compared to their first two or three albums. At their core, however, they remain true to themselves and their roots, maintaining their faith and their style. It’s an interesting juxtaposition to hear a band so heavy with songs titled Dogs Can Grow Beards All Over, This Song Is Called, and Danger: Wildman, such as they had on their earlier albums. But this silliness and light, revealed for example on their Zombie EP release, is as much at the heart of the band as the seriousness and introspection of the album 8:18, which is taken from Romans 8:18 and focuses on various manifestations of suffering and misery in the lives of believers. For Student Activities, The Devil Wears Prada has been one of the most requested bands in their genre for several years now, and we are happy to present them in concert for the students of Liberty University.
