Taken off their new album Trauma which is set for release on 29 March.
Detroit’s I Prevail have shared the video for the song Paranoid from their second full-length Trauma, which will be released through Fearless Records on 29 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.
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 first single Bow Down. The accompanying single Breaking Down, which pairs glitchy flourishes with a hypnotic and heartfelt vocal performance and impactful refrain.
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, 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:
16 June – Download Festival, Donington
17 June – SWG3, Glasgow
18 June – O2 Ritz, Manchester
20 June – Electric Ballroom, London
