I Prevail quickly rose to fame after posting a cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space" on YouTube. The cover was also featured on their debut EP. Since then, the band has released two full studio albums since. I Prevail's first full-length album contained the single "Alone", which won the band a Loudwire Music Award for Hard Rock Song Of The Year. I Prevail's internet success has resulted in the group performing energetic shows for fans around the world.
Starting on the Internet
I Prevail formed near the end of 2013 and began work on a debut EP almost immediately after. In December 2014, the band released its popular cover of "Blank Space" and two singles from the upcoming EP. I Prevail's "Blank Space" rose to No. 90 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. The EP titled Heart vs. Mind was released in January 2015 and debuted at No. 88 on the Billboard 200. Ahead of the release of I Prevail's first full-length album, Lifelines, it was announced that the band would go on its first headlining tour around the time time of the release. Lifelines was nominated for Album Of The Year at the Underground Interviews Awards. This album hit No. 15 on the Billboard 200 and contained the popular singles "Scars," "Stuck In Your Head," "Come And Get It," "Alone" and "Lifelines." "Alone" won a Loudwire Music Award which is the I Prevail's first and only award so far. The lead singles "Bow Down" and "Breaking Down" from the 2019 follow-up album Trauma showed that bassist Eli Clark was no longer with the band. I Prevail has yet to hire a new bassist and has been touring without one in 2019. Trauma has since produced two more singles which are "Paranoid" and "Hurricane." Trauma is the band's best-ranking album to date, rising to No. 14 on Billboard 200. In support of the album, I Prevail is on tour with Justin Stone, whose vocals are featured in the band's new song "Rise Above It."
