Vans Warped Tour will descend on the Philadelphia region on July 21st. Independent Philly will be there to catch all of the action but in the meantime we’re gearing up for the Warped Tour by interviewing several of the bands who will be performing here in two weeks.
We kicked off our series of interviews this morning when we spoke with Jeremy DePoyster of “The Devil Wears Prada“.
Independent Philly: You guys are known as a “Christian” band. How does that separate you from other metalcore bands on the scene today?
IP: What does “The Devil Wears Prada” mean to you?
IP: Have you ever played your own songs on Rock Band? Did you get a perfect score?
IP: Your new album “Dead Throne” is due out September 16th, what can fans expect from this latest venture, perhaps something they haven’t heard before?
the patient. I don’t see the world the same. I’m no one’s hero, so
just forget my name. I abhor you, with every foolish thing that you
say. None of it is worth the time: another meaningless war. You
don’t know what you need. We’re all so back and forth, nothing is
as it seems. You don’t know what you need. We make the same
mistakes, we’ve ruined everything. What is it this time? What
must you call holy? This is your lifeline, nothing is at it seems. If I
were you I’d give it up. If I were you I’d care. I’m born to lose with
a noose around my neck. World be damned and move forward. I
abhor you, with every selfish thing that you say. None of it is the
worth the time. You don’t know what you need. We’re all so back
and forth, nothing is as it seems. You don’t know what you need.
We make the same mistakes, we’ve ruined everything. Born to
lose with a noose around my neck.”
JD: I stand outside the bus and watch people and a lot of people are partying and hanging and seeing old friends but we’re here just to play awesome shows for the fans…these are some of the best shows we’ve ever played. We love “A Day To Remember”; we go way back as friends. “Against Me!” is also a really rad band.
IP: What is your least favorite part about touring?
IP: What is your biggest rockstar moment to date?
IP: Tell us something that would surprise or even shock our readers…
JD: We’re just a bunch of normal dudes. There is a facade that bands are idols or crazy people, and people make this life seem so crazy and insane, but we’re just six real dudes who play music. I think it would be encouraging to be a young person or even someone my age and find out this band is made up of people just like them.
We can’t wait to see Jeremy and the rest of TDWP when they rock the Susquehanna Bank Center on the 21st! Stay tuned for upcoming interviews with Go Radio, Asking Alexandria, and 3OH3!
