Certain moments in life change everything. The trajectory splinters, and theres no turning back. I PrevailBrian Burkheiser [clean vocals], Eric Vanlerberghe [harsh vocals], Steve Menoian [guitar], and Lee Runestad [drums]explore this phenomenon within the title of their full-length debut, Lifelines [Fearless Records]. I Prevail are no strangers to this experience. After the release of the quartets 2014 debut EP, Heart vs. Mind, nothing would ever be the same.

In early 2016, the boys retreated to Wall of Sound Studios in the small and secluded town of Riley, Michigan to work with trusted producers B.J. Perry and John Pregler. With nearly two years on the road under their collective belt, the group had fully realized their style, merging entrancing hooks and a powerful and pummeling sonic backdrop. Ultimately, Lifelines sees I Prevail take another big collective life step.
Escape The Fate:
With one of the fastest and heaviest sounds in metalcore today, Escape the Fate has gained a huge following with three hit albums and regular tour dates on the Warped Tour. Though their lightning fast guitars and drums have brought them popularity since 2004, their most recent, self-titled album has brought them into the mainstream. It's also brought Escape the Fate their first headlining tour dates in 2011, which continue well into the fall.
Escape the Fate caught their big break after winning a radio contest to open a show for My Chemical Romance, judged by the band themselves. While Escape the Fate's debut album, Dying Is Your Latest Fashion, initially received average reviews, it showcased the band's talent and led to tour dates that would boost their popularity. The band's lead singer, Ronnie Radke, was soon fired from the band due to frequent incarceration and his involvement in the murder of a teen. With Craig Mabbitt, Escape the Fate released This War Is Ours in 2008. The album reached #2 on the Independent Album charts and brought the band their first full-length concert schedule.
Escape the Fate has let more of their classic metal and rock influences show on their latest self-titled album, which is garnering well-deserved buzz from music critics. The group has recently finished tour dates on two 2011 headlining tours, with more beginning in late August. While most of the concert schedule is planned for the US, Escape the Fate will head to the UK shortly before ending their 2011 tour dates on October 30.
