I Prevail

Certain moments in life change everything. The traject
ory splinters, and there

s no turning back.

explore this phenomenon within the title of their fu
ll-
length debut,
Lifelines
[Fearless Records].

When we started diving into the record, we all sat dow
n and thought,

Wow, everything has
changed in the last year,
’”
explains Brian.

Everyone encounters those moments that really
define where the rest of their lives are headed. We

ve all grown from everything that

s
happened. When we sat down and got to work, we reall
y wanted to share our journey through
these songs.


Lifelines
are a great visual for certain points in your life,

adds Brian.

It

s a line you can

t go
backward from or ignore. For us, the path split from th
e moment we all created I Prevail.

I Prevail are no strangers to this experience. After th
e release of the quartet

s 2014 debut EP
,
Heart vs. Mind
, nothing would ever be the same. The EP moved over 1
00,000 copies as the
Detroit band toured with the likes of Hollywood Undea
d and Crown The Empire. Meanwhile, the
group

s cover of Taylor Swift

s

Blank Space

sold 300,000-plus singles, went Top 20 on Active
Rock Radio, and generated over 22 million views on You
Tube and 17 million-plus Spotify
streams (consistently remaining in the Top 10 of the pl
atform

s Viral Chart). The band would be
nominated for

Breakthrough Band

at the 2016
Alternative Press Music Awards
and garner
features from
Billboard
,
Detroit Free Press
,
AXS
,
Loudwire
, and many more. Everything has
aligned and set the stage perfectly their debut full-l
ength,
Lifelines
.
In early 2016, the boys retreated to Wall of Sound St
udios in the small and secluded town of
Riley, Michigan to work with trusted producers B.J. Perry a
nd John Pregler. With nearly two
years on the road under their collective belt, the grou
p had fully realized their style, merging
entrancing hooks and a powerful and pummeling sonic backd
rop.

On the EP, we were all getting to know each other

s style,

Brian goes on.

We spent a year
working on it without ever launching publicly. We want
ed to make the best impression possible.
Then when we put it out, we spent the next year-and-a
-half doing everything we could to
promote it. Writing
Lifelines
was such a different experience. We had so much more ti
me to
grow together and really had a clear vision for the sou
nd we wanted to create on the album.

The first singl
e

Scars

gallops from a propulsive riff into an unshakable r
efrain teetering
between a hypnotic harmony and a hard-hitting groove.
It

s immediately infectious.

Being away from family members and going through relat
ionships that have died off,
sometimes made me feel anxiety and depression,

admits Brian.

Sometimes, you have to look
in the mirror. We wanted to create a song that was pe
rsonal to us, but still relatable. That

s how
we got the concept of

Scars.

Elsewhere on the album

Stuck In Your Head

sees a magnetic vocal charge ahead in tandem
with a bombastic drumbeat and hyper-charged guitars maki
ng the song live up to its name.

Basically, we

re comparing a relationship to a broken record,

continues the singer.

It

s
dedicated to a certain ex of mine, and I can say a coup
le of the other guys dedicated it to their
former relationships too. Things are really good for a
while. All of a sudden, the record starts
wearing, and things get rocky. In my case, I always felt l
ike the bad guy. So, the song

s a final
send-off saying,

Thanks for the memories, but I

m glad you

re out of my life. Here

s a song for
you to go out to.
’”
Ultimately,
Lifelines
sees I Prevail take another big collective life step.

We wanted to create
something that can showcase every emotion,

Brian leaves off.

It

s anything you

re feeling or
looking for.
