Anticipation continues to build as Detroit’s rising rock band I Prevail reveal more information about their debut, full-length record, Lifelines, which is due out later this year. Today, the band has premiered a video for the record’s first new song called “Scars.” Additional details about the album will be unveiled in the coming month. Fans can purchase the new single now at iTunes and can pre-order a physical copy of Lifelines in a variety of bundles now at Fearless Records.

“Scars was the first song we wrote that really took things to another level.  It instantly set the tone for the rest of the album.  I think it perfectly showcases our sound in terms of the riffs, electronics and big chorus, while still keeping the heaviness.  We knew right away it was the song we wanted to lead with. As for the message, we were seeing so many people being either scared or bullied into a certain lifestyle by different aspects of society.  We still feel those pressures ourselves.  This song is a message telling people to follow your dreams and be proud of who you are, regardless of what’s going on around you.” – Brian Burkheiser (Vocals) 

I Prevail’s forthcoming record was recorded at Wall of Sound Studios in Riley, MI with producers B.J. Perry and John Pregler. It follows the band’s immensely popular, breakout EP, Heart vs. Mind, which featured their massively successful cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space.”

The new video for “Scars” comes just ahead of I Prevail’s headlining North American tour, that will kick off later this month in Grand Rapids, MI and will feature support from The White Noise, My Enemies & I and Bad Seed Rising. Follow the band on Facebook for more updates.
