Prada vocalist Mike Hranica said "We're excited to hit the road with All That Remains, Story Of The Year and Haste The Day. Being a co- headline tour, we'll be able to play a longer set, too, which means more brand new songs off 'With Roots Above and Branches Below.' I'm stoked to be hitting up cities that we haven't played in a while, and playing songs that we haven't had the chance to play within the previous tours."
Phil Labonte of All That Remains adds, "We're really excited to be hitting the road with a The Devil Wears Prada, Story Of The Year, and Haste The Day. ATR had such a great time playing on The Warped tour in 2008 with both DWP and SOTY were so we're looking forward to the same kind warm reception we got all last summer! We're hoping that ATR fans will come out and check out the other bands and rock with us!"

"We've spent a long time developing and touring Just Surrender, when we met with Razor & Tie recently, we knew that they were the label who could help us really release our first big record, we're excited for 2010," comments Just Surrender drummer, Steve Miller.
The New York based quartet Just Surrender have sold over 40,000 albums to date with their two previous independent releases. The band formed in 2003 right out of high school and has spent the last four years on the road playing the Vans Warped Tour and Bamboozle as well as touring with such bands as The Starting Line, All Time Low, Bayside, Set Your Goals, We The Kings, Taking Back Sunday, and more. Just Surrender's emo-tinged punk has connected with an impressive online fan-base with over 500,000 YouTube plays, 13 million MySpace plays, 5.3 million MySpace profile views, and 80,000 plus MySpace friends. The band continues to see 20,000-30,000 MySpace plays a day!
The new album is being recorded this fall and will be produced by Lou Giordano (Taking Back Sunday, We The Kings, Goo Goo Dolls) and co-produced by Ace Enders for a 2010 release. Just Surrender is: Jason Maffucci - vocals, Dan Simons - vocals / guitars, Hammer - bass, Jolly Ubriaco - guitars, and Steve Miller - drums. The band is managed by Lucas Keller and booked by Justin Hirschman of the Artist Group International.
"New York-based quartet reminiscent of Fall Out Boy infused with My Chemical Romance." MTV.com
"Catchy and wonderfully angsty, Jason Maffucci and Dan Simons didn't mess with their biggest selling point. The two trade lyrical passages and finally break bread together in each chorus." Absolutepunk.net
"As the hairs on the back of your neck start to stand straight up and you look down to see goose bumps spill out across your arms, you notice that you are hanging onto every cleverly crafted lyrics that this four piece has put out."
"Slick emo-rock goodness makes for a wonderful late summer album." BUZZGRINDER
