Ferret Music signs The Devil Wears Prada

Friday, June 20, 2008 4:29 PM PT


Official press release:

The Devil Wears Prada have announced their signing to Ferret Music today. The band shared the good news from the stage while playing their first set on Warped Tour in Pomona, CA. The band will appear on Warped Tour for the rest of the summer. Speaking on the signing Jeremy DePoyster (guitar/vocals) of the band said: "It's the best situation we could ask for. Ferret is run like an independent label where you know everyone there and work with them but they have the resources of a major label. We've also become really good friends with Carl (Severson of Ferret) and everyone there really believes in what we are doing. It helps when the people you work with and who work for you are just as stoked on your music as you are." Carl Severson of Ferret echoed the sentiment by saying, "The band and I met over a year a ago and just clicked. It was the right vibe, reminiscent of the kinship I've felt with some of the long time Ferret artists."

The Devil Wears Prada have been riding high over the last couple of years with their newest album Plagues scanning over 65,000 in the U.S. and their first album Dear Love... at over 50,000 copies. Multi page features have run recently in Alternative Press, Revolver and Metal Edge among other places. Most recently the band, composed of DePoyster, Daniel Williams (drums), Mike Hranica (vocals), Chris Rubey (guitar), Andy Trick (bass) and James Baney (keys), have returned from a headlining run of the UK and a slot of the prestigious Download Festival. They plan to begin recording a new album at the end of the year for a 2009 release.

50,000 + 65,000 = 115,000 Fools. Sadly 50,000 of them likely made the same mistake twice.

TDWP is the BEST band ever.

5/28/2012 10:41:21 AM
Both accounts above are made by the band's hired PR stuntman. To which he seems horribly under skilled. Fire this obvious moron at all cost.
