          ROADRUNNER RECORDS ANNOUNCE NEW SIGNING,

                         THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA;

                 LABEL DEBUT SLATED FOR FALL 2013;

   NORTH AMERICAN CO-HEADLINE TREK WITH AS I LAY DYING

        KICKS OFF FEBRUARY 22ND IN VENTURA, CALIFORNIA;

    ONE & HALF HEARTS WRITTEN BY MIKE HRANICA OUT NOW


       Roadrunner Records has announced its signing of The Devil Wears Prada.

Deeply-rooted as one of the most potent and powerful bands in modern American

metal, The Devil Wears Prada will make their label debut with an as-yet-untitled

new LP, executive produced by Adam Dutkiewicz of Killswitch Engage, with

producer/engineer Matt Goldman, expected to arrive fall 2013.

       Mike Hranica, front man of The Devil Wears Prada said, "We’ve put so much

time into the new songs already, and we're really happy where things are sitting. I

think with Roadrunner in the picture, it's only more encouraging as far as compiling

a record that we can be proud of and a record that exists well as DEAD THRONE's

successor."
       The Devil Wears Prada is heralding the announcement with a nationwide co-

headline trek with As I Lay Dying. The highly anticipated run gets underway

February 22nd at Ventura, California’s Majestic Ventura Theater Half House and then

continues through early April (see attached itinerary). The Devil Wears Prada and

As I Lay Dying will be accompanied on the epic tour by For Today, The Color Morale

(February 22nd – March 7th), and The Chariot (March 8th – April 4th). Following the

group’s US run, The Devil Wears Prada will head overseas for a series of European

festival dates. For complete details and ticket information, please visit

www.tdwpband.com/tour.

       Furthermore, Mike Hranica has released his brand new book, One & Half

Hearts, a collection of inspirations behind the group’s breakout record DEAD

THRONE. One & Half Hearts looks back on the creation of DEAD THRONE with an

in-depth exploration of its lyrical context. Copies of One & Half Hearts are available

now at www.mikehranica.com, www.tdwpstore.com, www.amazon.com and will be

available for purchase on the band’s upcoming tour.

       The Devil Wears Prada’s 2011 breakthrough, DEAD THRONE, debuted at #10

on the Billboard Top 200 and cemented the group as one of the most electrifying

acts in modern metal. An incendiary live force, the band has proven relentless road

warriors. In addition to countless headline dates and festival sets, recent highlights

include spending summer 2012 alongside Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and the one and

only Motörhead on the all-star Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.

       The Devil Wears Prada is: Mike Hranica – vocals * Chris Rubey – lead guitar *
Jeremy DePoyster – rhythm guitar, vocals * Andy Trick – bass * Daniel Williams –
