I Prevail's third full length album, produced by Tyler Smyth, features stadium-sized riffs and unforgettable melodies. The band combines soaring vocals and intimate lyrics resulting in an album that resonates with the listener in the most personal way.
Platinum-certified and twice GRAMMY-nominated Michigan rock powerhouse, I Prevail are back with their third full length offering on Fearless Records. The band has established itself as the forerunners of the genre in the 21st century. The new record, once again produced by Tyler Smyth, features the sort of stadium-sized riffs that will rattle your teeth loose from your gums and unforgettable, supremely catchy melodies that will camp out in your brain for weeks at a time. The band also alternately mixes screamed vocals that sound as though they crawled from the depths of hell with soaring, emotional vocals and heartfelt, intimate lyrics that go so deep, they hit marrow. The end result is an album that resonates with the listener in the most personal way.
Rock music relies on reinvention. Innovators refashion and re-up the genre in order to push it forward. I Prevail not only redefined themselves on their sophomore blockbuster, TRAUMA, they also redefined the genre for tomorrow’s generation. Flipping the script, the group - Brian Burkheiser (clean vocals), Eric Vanlerberghe (harsh vocals), Steve Menoian (lead guitar), and Dylan Bowman (rhythm guitar) - uplifted rock to a plateau where soundscapes can unpredictably toss and turn between heavy metal, alternative, hip-hop, and electronic moods without warning, boundaries, or rules. Meanwhile, the lyrics team with confessional emotionality as if ripped from the pages of a secret diary.
Since TRAUMA’s March 2019 release, I Prevail continued to defy the odds. TRAUMA has accumulated nearly 777 million worldwide streams and over 577,000 units in worldwide consumption. The group also received its first-ever nominations for two GRAMMY Awards in 2020 - in the categories of Best Rock Album for TRAUMA and for Best Metal Performance for the single “Bow Down." I Prevail and their tremendous accomplishments were lauded by mainstream press, including Variety, NPR, Psychology Today, The Chicago Tribune, Forbes, SPIN, and more. The single “Hurricane” landed at No. 1 on the Billboard Rock Chart. It marked the first chart-topping single of the band’s career.
