I Prevail
I Prevail
Certain moments in life change everything. The trajectory splinters, and there’s no turning back. I Prevail—Brian Burkheiser [clean vocals], Eric Vanlerberghe [harsh vocals], Steve Menoian [guitar], Dylan Bowman [rhythm guitar] —explore this phenomenon within the title of their full-length debut, Lifelines [Fearless Records].

“When we started diving into the record, we all sat down and thought, ‘Wow, everything has changed in the last year,’” explains Brian. “Everyone encounters those moments that really define where the rest of their lives are headed. We’ve all grown from everything that’s happened. When we sat down and got to work, we really wanted to share our journey through these songs.”

“Lifelines are a great visual for certain points in your life,” adds Brian. “It’s a line you can’t go backward from or ignore. For us, the path split from the moment we all created I Prevail.”

I Prevail are no strangers to this experience. After the release of the quartet’s 2014 debut EP, Heart vs. Mind, nothing would ever be the same. The EP moved over 100,000 copies as the Detroit band toured with the likes of Hollywood Undead and Crown The Empire. Meanwhile, the group’s cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” sold 300,000-plus singles, went Top 20 on Active Rock Radio, and generated over 22 million views on YouTube and 17 million-plus Spotify streams (consistently remaining in the Top 10 of the platform’s Viral Chart). The band would be nominated for “Breakthrough Band” at the 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards and garner features from Billboard, Detroit Free Press, AXS, Loudwire, and many more. Everything has aligned and set the stage perfectly their debut full-length, Lifelines.

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.

“On the EP, we were all getting to know each other’s style,” Brian goes on. “We spent a year working on it without ever launching publicly. We wanted to make the best impression possible. Then when we put it out, we spent the next year-and-a-half doing everything we could to promote it. Writing Lifelines was such a different experience. We had so much more time to grow together and really had a clear vision for the sound we wanted to create on the album.”

The first single “Scars” gallops from a propulsive riff into an unshakable refrain teetering between a hypnotic harmony and a hard-hitting groove. It’s immediately infectious.

“Being away from family members and going through relationships that have died off, sometimes made me feel anxiety and depression,” admits Brian. “Sometimes, you have to look in the mirror. We wanted to create a song that was personal to us, but still relatable. That’s how we got the concept of ‘Scars.’”

Elsewhere on the album “Stuck In Your Head” sees a magnetic vocal charge ahead in tandem with a bombastic drumbeat and hyper-charged guitars making the song live up to its name.

“Basically, we’re comparing a relationship to a broken record,” continues the singer. “It’s dedicated to a certain ex of mine, and I can say a couple of the other guys dedicated it to their former relationships too. Things are really good for a while. All of a sudden, the record starts wearing, and things get rocky. In my case, I always felt like the bad guy. So, the song’s a final send-off saying, ‘Thanks for the memories, but I’m glad you’re out of my life. Here’s a song for you to go out to.’”

Ultimately, Lifelines sees I Prevail take another big collective life step. “We wanted to create something that can showcase every emotion,” Brian leaves off. “It’s anything you’re feeling or looking for.”

“LIFELINES are the fine lines between order and chaos and the time we spend between them.”

Lifelines debuted at #3 on Alternative Albums, #4 Hard Music Albums, #5 Rock Albums, #9 Top Album, and #15 on the Billboard Top 200, with Alternative Press naming Lifelines one of the Best Debut albums of 2016, nominating them in Breakthrough Artists in 2016 Alternative Press Music Awards.

We Came As Romans
We Came As Romans
"Though we've grown as individuals, musicians, and as a band over the years, we have never changed the meaning behind what our band is, and if anything, on this record we found greater meaning and purpose in the message we are trying to send to listeners," explains We Came As Romans' lyricist and guitarist Joshua Moore, in regards to the band's musical evolution. "I think our fans will really understand and see that once they hear the album."

The Detroit, MI-based band will release their third full-length album, Tracing Back Roots, on July 23 via Equal Vision Records.

The eleven track album follows Understanding What We've Grown To Be, which was released in September 2011 and debuted at No. 20 on the Billboard Current Top 200. To date, Understanding What We've Grown To Be and the band's debut-full-length, To Plant A Seed, have sold over 183,000 copies combined. Additional Billboard Chart debut placements for Understanding What We've Grown To Be included: #5 on Top Hard Music, #7 Independent, #10 Top Current Rock, #15 Current Digital, and #21 on the Top 200 Album Chart.

In March 2013, the band travelled to Los Angeles to record the highly anticipated follow-up album, teaming up with renowned producer John Feldmann [The Used, Black Veil Brides, All Time Low]."It was a true joy to be included in Tracing Back Roots," notes Feldmann. "We Came As Romans push the boundaries of what modern alternative music should be, while staying authentic to their roots. One of the few new bands to keep true to their vision while developing as artists."

Moore adds, "It was honestly a dream come true for the band to be working with John Feldmann, with him being so well-respected and having produced some of our favorite CDs growing up. He brought this amazing new perspective to our group and really pushed me to step outside the box as a writer. I truly believe that this next record is all of the best elements of what we have done so far in music, combined with where we want to go and the music we want to play going forward."

The new album most notably showcases vocalist Dave Stephens in a new light, with the incorporation of his clean singing for the first time ever. In addition to his signature powerful, yet articulate, screams, Stephens now also displays rich melodic tones and gritty textures, that perfectly balances the soaring, smooth croons of co-vocalist Kyle Pavone. Musically the album expands on the anthemic, inspiring quality of the band's recently released single "Hope", offering sweeping guitars interlaced with delicate synth interludes and explosive percussive elements. The resulting album is their catchiest and most universally relatable music to date.

The haunting, intricate album artwork for Tracing Back Roots was illustrated by the incredibly talented Paul Romano [Chiodos, Mastodon], who also created the covers for the band's two previous full-lengths. Romano and We Came As Romans' bassist Andrew Glass collaborated on the artistic direction of each cover, with the newest one incorporating and elaborating on elements within the first two covers. Glass explains, "The imagery is based on the idea of moving forward with the knowledge that we have learned about ourselves throughout the years, from the darkest to brightest times in life. It represents our continuous work towards transforming into the people we want to be, while always remembering our roots that made us who we are."

Tracing Back Roots will be released around the world through partnerships with Nuclear Blast [Europe, South Africa, Russia], We Are Unified [Australia, New Zealand], Triple Vision Records [Japan] and through Equal Vision Records for North America and all remaining territories.

We Came As Romans formed in 2005 and is comprised of Dave Stephens [vocals], Kyle Pavone [vocals], Joshua Moore [lyrics/guitar], Eric Choi [drums], Lou Cotton [guitar] and Andrew Glass [bass].

The band has appeared on the covers of Alternative Press (twice) and Substream Music Press magazines, on the front pages of the NJ Star-Ledger, Asbury Park Press, The Aquarian Weekly, and The Metro (Detroit) newspapers, in exclusive features in Journeys stores and in Hot Topic's back-to-school campaign, and appeared on RollingStone.com, Nikon.com, MTV Buzzworthy Blog, Axe Body Spray Sites, and Sirius XM Liquid Metal.

In addition to their unique sound and positive message, We Came As Romans has become well-known for their impressive commitment to touring. In 2012 the band charged through extensive worldwide touring, including performances in the UK/Europe, Australia, the Philippines, Japan, Russia, North and South America and more, with the likes of The Used, Megadeth, NOFX, Parkway Drive, GWAR, Suicide Silence, August Burns Red, and The Devil Wears Prada. This summer, We Came As Romans will perform on the entirety of the 2013 Vans Warped Tour as a Main Stage artist � their second time on the full tour � with expansive stateside and international touring to follow throughout the fall and winter.
The Word Alive
The Word Alive
THE WORD ALIVE - Telle Smith (Vocals), Tony Pizzuti (Guitar), Zack Hansen (Guitar), Daniel Shapiro (Bass), Luke Holland (Drums) - People can immediately tell if you're real. They know if your art is genuine, and they'll stick with you if they hear, see, and feel your truth in everything you create. Since forming in 2008, The Word Alive have built that sort of trust with their diehard fan base - the sort of trust that gains you followers not just for a fleeting moment, but for a lifetime. So, it's only fitting that the Phoenix, AZ quintet's third full-length album for Fearless Records bears the title of 'REAL.'

Over the course of two full-length albums and an EP, The Word Alive have risen through the ranks to become modern heavy music elite. They've toured with everybody from Killswitch Engage to A Day To Remember in addition to gracing the stage on Warped Tour multiple times, including a full run on this summer's Vans Warped Tour. They've garnered loyal press support from the likes of Revolver and Alternative Press, to musician magazines Modern Drummer and Guitar World, as well as strong brand partnerships with Monster Energy, DW Drums and Ibanez. Respected equally by their peers and fans alike for their impressive technical musical abilities and goosebump-inducing live show that has gathered force and new fans with every gig, the band have worked hard to position 'REAL.' to be the album that truly sees them breaking through.
