The Devil Wears Prada Release Cover Of Julien Baker’s “Sour Breath”

The Devil Wears Prada have released a cover of Julien Baker’s “Sour Breath.” You can get that in digital outlets now, and as a 7 inch vinyl on July 13. Mike Hranica commented:

“We were most flattered when Julien mentioned covering our songs way back when. With that, we thought it would be interesting to cover one of hers. I suppose it sort of explains itself.”

Concert Review: A Day To Remember, Papa Roach, Falling In Reverse, & The Devil Wears Prada In San Francisco, CA

On March 2, I attended A Day To Remember’s “15 Years In The Making” tour at the Armory in San Francisco, CA and it was an insane show!

The Devil Wears Prada kicked off the night and things were off to a great start until half the sound system went out towards the beginning of their set. Fans couldn’t even hear Mike Hranica’s vocals for a few minutes, but the band continued to power through anyway. Once the technical issues were solved, the rest of the set was flawless. They only played about seven songs, but they did a good job at balancing it out with tracks spanning a majority of their discography. Some highlights included “Wapakalypse” and “Mammoth.”

Falling In Reverse were up next and they put on an enjoyable performance. Frontman Ronnie Radke was really energetic and had people bouncing from the start. He also had an impressive vocal range that was able to transition from singing to growling to even rapping with ease. Like The Devil Wears Prada, the group only played about seven songs, but it was enough to pump the crowd up for the main bands. Highlights from their set included “The Drug In Me Is You” and “Just Like You.”

After Falling In Reverse, it was time for Papa Roach. Before they came out, a recording played and told everyone to put their middle fingers in the air and chant “Fuck Papa Roch.” The crowd did as they were instructed and continued chanting until the band blasted into the title track of their latest album “Crooked Teeth.” From there, the group pretty much played a balance of classics and new tracks, along with an amazing cover of Blur’s “Song 2.” Frontman Jacoby Shaddix had so much energy it was infectious. He had the crowd doing circle pits and even tried to get a wall of death going. He also had his young son Brixton come out and shout at the crowd to get down so they could all hop back up during “Traumatic,” which Brixton also sang with his father. Aside from that, other highlights from their set included “Between Angels And Insects,” “Scars,” “Last Resort,” and “…To Be Loved.”

Finally, it was time for the headliners of the evening, A Day To Remember. The group are out on the road celebrating their 15th anniversary, and they definitely know how to throw a party. As promised, the band played tracks spanning almost their entire catalogue, and to enhance the experience they used big screens with different types of imagery, including the artwork for various albums. They kicked things off with “I’m Made of Wax, Larry, What Are You Made Of?” and just kept the momentum going from there. Like the other singers in the supporting acts, Jeremy McKinnon was very energetic. His singing and growls were on point, while the rest of the band fired on all cylinders as well. They tried to make things as fun as possible too by encouraging fans to mosh and crowd surf, blasting confetti cannons and smoke, throwing out toilet paper and tons of beach balls ranging from small ones to a mega-one. The audience was going absolutely crazy, while having the time of their lives. Some highlights from their performance included “Life Lessons Learned The Hard Way,” their cover of Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone,” “All I Want,” and their encore which began with a mini acoustic set featuring “If It Means A Lot To You” and “I Remember,” followed by “The Plot To Bomb The Panhandle,” and “The Downfall Of Us All.”
