The Devil Wears Prada was founded during 2005 in Dayton Ohio; they derived their band name from the story with thesametitle. Being founded with all Christian members and maintaining a theme that follows toward their religion, the groupplayed theirfirst show in 2005 with a fill-in bassist and only one guitarist. Rhythm guitarist Jeremy Depoyster and bassist AndyTrick joinedthe band soon afterward. They continued playing at local areas in Dayton before recording their demo later in theyear whichwas titled Patterns of a Horizon.

One year after the group recorded their demo and trialed for record labels, Rise Records took the band in with a contract.Theband was unsatified with the demo so they re-recorded all the of the tracks from the demo for their debut full-lengthalbum,Dear Love: A Beautiful Discord. The album was recorded at The Foundation Recording Studio held in Connersville,Indiana and itwas released on August 22, 2006. The record’s final track features guest vocals, courtesy of Cole Wallace whowas formerlypart of the band Gwen Stacy. With the release of the album, the band then began touring in multiple areasthroughout thecountry, most notably at 2006’s Cornerstone Festival after being recognized as a newer key musical group toChristian metal.

With Dear Love released at the end of the summer of 2006, The Devil Wears Prada already had songs for their secondalbumprepared by winter of the same year.

In an interview at the beginning of April with Lucy Alberts of Alternative Press, the band revealed that they were recordinganEP before they begin their Back to the Roots Tour. The EP was described as a “fun” release with “brutal” songs in the veinofwhat will eventually become the band’s forthcoming studio album. The band’s Back to the Roots Tour was presentedbyRockstar.

By January 2011, Hranica revealed in an interview with Tim Karan what the band’s ideas and plans for their fourth full-lengthstudio album would be. His comments were placed within comparison to their latest release (the Zombie EP) anddescribed thatthe record is “a more heavy-focused sound from us. We think it would be smart to push that beefy, heavysongwriting [fromZombie] into the new full-length…but with a strong blend of what we usually do with melody.” The albumwas confirmed to notbe a concept album - like their previous work on the Zombie EP - but would have an overall theme,focused on anti-idolatry,which, according to Hranica, “has been weighing on me lately.” On June 13, Alternative Press beganstreaming a track debutingoff the upcoming album titled “Born To Lose, and during the same month, the band signed withRoadrunner Records. Vocalist,Hrancia offered his opinion of the new material, stating that it will contain “the heavy aspectsof the Zombie EP, meshed with themelody of the full-lengths. ‘Born to Lose’ captures some of those elements and serves as acomprehensive preview to thealbum.” He ended his comments with; “By all means I’d call it our most emotional, well-writtenalbum to date..

The album’s name was revealed to be Dead Throne, and was released on September 13, 2011 through Ferret Music. Ithassince become a critical and commercial success, where it peaked at number 10 on the Billboard 200, selling more than32,000copies within its first week.
