“‘Trauma’ was a very reflective record,” singer Brian Burkheiser said, referring to “True Power’s” game-changing predecessor. “I’d struggled with a major vocal injury and had been wondering whether I wanted to continue doing this thing at all. Eric (Vanlerberghe) had also lost his best friend over that same time, so there was a lot of heartache behind it. With ‘True Power,’ we were going into a new phase. After taking that trauma and figuring out how to channel it, you find this sense of newfound confidence and an ability to grow as a person: to become truly yourself. We took a ‘no rules’ mentality into the songwriting, and a lot of it is heavy as fuck, but the songs sound as diverse as they’ve ever been, too. There is a song on the record called ‘There’s Fear in Letting Go,’ and that became a huge mantra for us. Yeah, it can be scary letting go of things, but it can also help you take back everything that’s yours: which is exactly what we’ve done on this album.”
I Prevail has earned two Grammy nominations—Best Rock Album for “Trauma” and Best Metal Performance for “Bow Down.” The band has racked up more than 2.7 billion global streams, is approaching 350 million YouTube views and saw its “Hurricane” single top Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart in 2020. A number of their singles have now been certified Gold and Platinum, and the band has been praised by press far and wide, including Forbes, Billboard, The Hollywood Reporter and NPR.
