Certain moments in life change everything. The trajectory splinters, and there's no turning back. Detroit rock band I Prevail – Brian Burkheiser (clean vocals), Eric Vanlerberghe (harsh vocals), Steve Menoian (guitar) and Lee Runestad (drums) explore this phenomenon within their full-length debut Lifelines. Recorded at Wall of Sound Studios in Riley, MI with producers B.J. Perry and John Pregler, the album follows-up their breakout 2014 EP Heart vs. Mind which featured the group's massively successful cover of Taylor Swift's "Blank Space."
"Making this record pushed us to our limits, which is exactly how we wanted it," says Burkheiser. "That's how you know you've put your all into something. The writing process took over a year because we just refused to settle. We're going to prove to the world that we're here to stay. Our heart and soul is in every track." "We really wanted to stay true to our sound, but also find a way to continue maturing at the same time," adds Menoian. "I think we found a good balance. The choruses are bigger, the heavy parts are heavier, and we were able to express a message that is really meaningful to all of us."
