THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA: '8:18' First-Week Sales Revealed

"8:18", the fifth studio album from the Dayton, Ohio Christian metalcore band THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, sold around 16,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 20 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD arrived in stores on September 17 via Roadrunner

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA's fourth album, "Dead Throne", opened with 32,000 units back in September 2011 to land at No. 10.

Long acclaimed as among one of the most potent and provocative bands in modern American metal, THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA made a massive leap forward with the stunning "8:18". The album — executive-produced by KILLSWITCH ENGAGE's Adam Dutkiewicz and produced by the band along with producer/engineer Matt Goldman (UNDEROATH, THE CHARIOT) — sees the group driving its relentless sonic approach with more might than ever before, giving extreme power to frontman Mike Hranica's grim, emotional lyricism.

THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA has announced details of an upcoming North American headline tour. "The 8:18 Tour", which will see the band accompanied by THE GHOST INSIDE, VOLUMES and TEXAS IN JULY, gets underway November 2 in Detroit at the Royal Oak Music Theatre and continues through December 20, wrapping in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Singer Mike Hranica commented: "We've loved playing two new songs over the course of this year, and with that being said we're really excited to debut more material live. For me, '8:18' is meant to reflect a live sense of vocals, so doing another headline tour like this is going to be excellent."
