The Devil Wears Prada Thank Touring for Their Success
There are a lot of factors that determine whether or not a band will blow up. For the Devil Wears Prada, who've been riding a huge wave of success in the past two years, hitting the road and pounding the pavement has been the most crucial factor for the band's success.
"We have worked pretty hard and hit the right tours, ditching our homes," guitarist/vocalist Jeremy DePoyster told Noisecreep. "We didn't really 'ditch' anything, but we did leave our girlfriends and dogs to stay on the road and being on the road the whole time. I dunno how many tours we've done, but we've been trying to build things up. Maybe are people ready for something new, too?"
DePoyster said that he has become more domesticated over the past year, since he was only 18 years old when he first hit the touring circuit. "Back then, I always thought, 'Screw my parents, this is awesome.' But now? I miss being at home," he recalls. To make the tour bus feel like a home on wheels, DePoyster says the band brings a few Xboxes on the road, among other things. "Having my laptop helps," he also said. "I am a huge movie buff. I have binders full of DVDs, I love James Bond movies, so it makes me feel like I am at home when I can watch movies."
The band is currently co-headlining the Napalm & Noise Tour with All That Remains through December.
