A mere five months ago, the unknown band I Prevail placed the band’s rendition of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” on You Tube.  They struck lightning in a bottle, delivering one of the most virally shared performances on Spotify this year with over three million streams, and a video that has now been viewed just shy of 10 MILLION times on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=czb_CZfWko8.   Single sales have exceeded  200,000 digital downloads, while I Prevail now has over 100,000 “likes” on Facebook.  Vocalist Brian Burkheiser shares, “It’s crazy exciting, when we did the video  we hoped for 5,000-10,000 views including our friends and families.  Now when we try to think about ten million views, it’s so hard to imagine but it really makes us work harder to make all our fans happy with this adventure.  We want to meet all ten million one to one but it’s getting tougher to do..  but we will keep trying.”

 

Last week, Fearless Records impacted active rock radio with “Blank Space”  Stations across the U.S. came on instantaneously exhibiting yet another indicator that the band’s rise continues with rapid momentum.  Following a standing room only headline tour, I Prevail begins a direct support run with Amaranthe today in Montreal.  Lead guitarist Steve Menoain reflects, “As we get ready to set out on our first support slot on a major tour, we’re taken aback by how amazing our first headlining tour went over the last two months.  We had some great experiences and made some awesome new friends.  It was incredible to meet so many fans in person who supported us online and helped to get us to this point.  We are so excited to play with a great band from Sweden, and are looking forward to making some great new friends on this run!

 

The band’s EP HEART VS. MIND was issued in December, peaking at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album chart, while “Blank Space” rose to #1 on the iTunes Rock Singles chart.  It is available for purchase here: http://found.ee/heartvsmind.
