After generating nearly half-a-billions streams, going gold in the US, in a climate where that achievement is becoming more and more rare, and launching a two-year whirlwind of sold out shows, Detroit’s I Prevail return to the UK this June for three headline shows, following their main stage performance at this years Download Festival. The band will be supported by Palisades on all headline dates.
You can see I Prevail at the following dates in the UK this June:
16th June – Download Festival, Donington
17th June – SWG3, Glasgow
18th June – O2 Ritz, Manchester
20th June – Electric Ballroom, London
The band recently announced their second full-length and one of the year’s most anticipated releases with Trauma. The album will be released through Fearless Records on 29th March 2019.
Trauma represents a victorious moment in the wake of a series of trials and tribulations endured by the Michigan quartet—Brian Burkheiser [clean vocals], Eric Vanlerberghe [harsh vocals], Steve Menoian [lead guitar], and Dylan Bowman [rhythm guitar]. Even as they catapulted towards mainstream notoriety with 2016’s breakout Lifelines, they faced unforeseen and unbelievable hardship that might’ve broken any other band.
Burkheiser dealt with a debilitating and shocking vocal injury that jeopardised his future as a singer. He made it through, but dealt with the aftershocks of stress and anxiety. Mired in thoughts of potentially leaving the band, he made a choice. He got together with his band brothers in 2018 and they decided to craft the record they wanted to hear without outside input. Joined by producer Tyler Smith [Falling In Reverse], they emerged from 10 months in the studio with Trauma.
Now, the album represents a realisation of their full potential. I Prevail elevate rock by making it unpredictable again, leaping from moments of metal, alternative, electronic, and hip-hop. This unpredictability powers the heavy and hard-hitting new single “Bow Down.” The video has already over 658K views in a matter of days.
Additionally, they just unveiled an accompanying single “Breaking Down,” which pairs glitchy flourishes with a hypnotic and heartfelt vocal performance and impactful refrain. Which has reached 492K views.
With an equally melodic, magnetic, and momentous offering, I Prevail triumph on Trauma. Smarter, slicker, and soaring towards stardom, rock music gets the band it needs to carry it to the forefront of culture again: I Prevail.
