Late last week the “Rise Up” Tour rolled into Berkeley for it’s last show, and headliners The Devil Wears Prada put on a metalcore clinic as they blazed through a setlist that highlighted their entire back catalogue. Having just released just released their latest studio record, Transit Blues, on October 7th, the band ripped through a few songs from the record, including “Praise Poison,” “Flyover States,” and ‘Daughter,” as the strobe lights kept up with the frantic guitars. As the mosh pit grew, the band also belted more than a few from their earlier records, including “Escape,” “First Sight,” and “Supernova,” before returning to the stage to close out the night with an encore of “Mammoth.”
