UPDATE: The Devil Wears Prada & As I Lay Dying Unite for Marathon Metalcore Tour; North American Co-Headline Trek Kicks Off on February 22nd in Ventura, California; Multi-Artist Bill to Also Feature For Today, The Color Morale, and The Chariot; Tickets on

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.

Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) ir...
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did.

While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehe...
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example...
