NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 12/18/12 -- Ferret Music recording group The Devil Wears Prada and Metal Blade Records' As I Lay Dying have announced details of their upcoming North American co-headline tour. The hugely anticipated trek gets underway February 22nd at Ventura, California's Majestic Ventura Theater Half House and then continues through early April (see itinerary below). Tickets for all dates will be on sale Friday, December 21st.
The Devil Wears Prada and As I Lay Dying will be accompanied on the epic tour by For Today (on all dates except March 6th-March 7th), The Color Morale (February 22nd - March 7th), and The Chariot (March 8th - April 4th). For complete details and ticket information, please visit www.tdwpband.com/tour and www.asilaydying.com/events.
The tour follows The Devil Wears Prada's 2011 breakthrough, "DEAD THRONE," which confirmed the band as one of the most potent and powerful in modern American metal. The album's latest video, "Mammoth," premiered to great acclaim earlier this year and is streaming now at the band's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/TDWP.
The Devil Wears Prada followed the release of "DEAD THRONE" with the hugely successful "Dead Throne Tour: North America," captured for posterity on the recently released CD/DVD, "DEAD&ALIVE." The collection includes performances of songs spanning TDWP's career, including such fan favorites as "Danger: Wildman," "Born To Lose," "Kansas," "Assistant To The Regional Manager," and "Outnumbered." In addition, "DEAD&ALIVE" features an array of behind-the-scenes footage shot and edited by the band's own Jeremy DePoyster.
Long hailed as a genuinely electrifying live act, The Devil Wears Prada have also proven indefatigable road warriors. In addition to countless headline dates and festival sets, recent highlights include spending summer 2012 alongside Slipknot, Slayer, Anthrax, and the one and only Motörhead as one of the main stage headliners on the all-star Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival.
As I Lay Dying preceded the release of their 6th full-length studio album, "AWAKENED," with a highly successful run on 2012's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival where the band rotated between the side and main stages. Just before "AWAKENED" dropped via Metal Blade Records on September 25th, the band released their first production video for the album for the track "A Greater Foundation." Fans instantly took to the Internet to express their love of the new song -- AND to discuss the relevance of the lyrics. Check out the video and comments HERE.
The five-piece San Diego, Calif. based metal act, As I Lay Dying, recently concluded their run on the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour where they toured alongside Asking Alexandria, Memphis May Fire, and Attila, including a stop at the hugely successful California Metal Fest where the band electrified the stage and decimated metal fans with their powerful and blistering live set that the band is known for. "AWAKENED," which Rick Florino from Artist Direct called "...their best album yet," noting "it's a high water mark for modern metal, and it's going to wake up the entire genre" giving the release 5 out of 5 stars, debuted on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart at #11, selling over 28,000 copies in its first week in the US alone.
For their latest release, "AWAKENED," As I Lay Dying -- NICK HIPA (guitar), TIM LAMBESIS (vocals), JORDAN MANCINO (drums), PHIL SGROSSO (guitar) and JOSH GILBERT (bass) -- holed up in the Blasting Room in Fort Collins, CO with renowned rock producer Bill Stevenson (Descendents) and mixer Colin Richardson. The group's last LP, 2010s "THE POWERLESS RISE," debuted on the Billboard Top 200 at #10, at #2 on Billboard's Independent Albums Chart and #3 on Billboard's Hard Music Albums Chart.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is clearly many things: data collection and analytics, wearables, Smart Grids and Smart Cities, the Industrial Internet, and more. Cool platforms like Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Intel's Galileo and Edison, and a diverse world of sensors are making the IoT a great toy box for developers in all these areas. In this Power Panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists discussed what things are the most important, which will have the most profound effect on the world, and what should we expect to see over the next couple of years.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now all corporate assets – people, objects, and spaces – can share information about themselves and thei...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" in this scenario: microservice A (releases daily) depends on a couple of additions to backend B (re...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Yet a closer inspection at the data reveals less than half of these cloud projects involve production...
