AP: The Devil Wears Prada Cover Story

Check out my latest cover story for Alternative Press. I spent a few days on the road with The Devil Wears Prada for this piece. My first cover story for AP was on Dashboard Confessional in 2001. I wrote a second Dashboard cover for them a few years later, as well as cover stories on AFI, Coheed & Cambria and the Oral History of the Vans Warped Tour. I've also contributed to covers on Taste Of Chaos & more. What can I say? I like cover stories.
