Straight out of Detroit, rock band I Prevail has just released the title and artwork for their debut album: Lifelines. The album will be released through Fearless Records sometime later this year.
I Prevail made waves in the music world after the release of their cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space," which propelled the band into instant fame, just in time for the release of their EP later "Heart Vs. Mind" shortly after. The band has sold 300,000 singles and their cover received over 40 million times!
"Making this record pushed us to our limits, which is exactly how we wanted it,” says vocalist Brian Burkheiser. “That's how you know you've put your all into something. The writing process took over a year because we just refused to settle. We're going to prove to the world that we're here to stay. Our heart and soul is in every track."
"We really wanted to stay true to our sound, but also find a way to continue maturing at the same time,” adds lead guitarist Steve Menoian. “I think we found a good balance. The choruses are bigger, the heavy parts are heavier, and we were able to express a message that is really meaningful to all of us."
I Prevail launches their tour on July 14th in Grand Rapid, MI. Don't miss your chance to catch the band nominated for "Best Breakthrough Band" by Alternative Press.
