"Crew members are the backbone of the live music industry"
Following a phenomenal 2019, American rockers I Prevail are heading to Australia this July.
It was a huge 12 months for the Michigan band off the back of their second album Trauma. Alongside sold-out tours all around the world, the year was topped off by a top 15 debut on the Top 200 and two Grammy Award nominations, for Best Rock Album and Best Metal Performance.
Joining the bill are metal titans Motionless In White, who released their fifth full-length record Disguise and local legends Windwaker. Their 2019 was equally as eventful, with a new EP, slots at Download Festival, Good Things Festival and Unify Gathering, as well as touring Beartooth and Make Them Suffer.
It’s been a steady rise for I Prevail. After coming together in 2013, a combined love for heavy rock, metal, and pop music, saw the band’s interesting sound come together. Vocalist Brian Burkheiser wasn’t a fan of heavy music when the band formed, so of course, it’d be a cover of Taylor Swift’s ‘Blank Space’ that pushed the band to international attention in 2014. Their debut EP, 2015’s Heart Vs Mind showed the world what I Prevail might be able to achieve, but it wasn’t until their debut album Lifelines that they showed just how versatile their brand of metalcore could truly be.
On Trauma, I Prevail might just have fully realised how far they can push their musical boundaries. Throughout its 13 tracks, you’ll find elements of everything from hip hop to rock and electronic to pop. But make no mistake, Trauma is a heavy album through and through.
I Prevail will bring their latest album Trauma to Australia this July. Tickets are on sale this Friday 14 February at 9am (local time) via Ticketmaster.com.au.
