I Prevail Premiere “Rise” Music Video

I Prevail have premiered a new video for “Rise” off their debut album “Lifelines.” The clip was directed by Dominar Films.

Steve Menoian said the following:

“We knew we wanted to create a video for ‘Rise‘ very early on in the making of ‘Lifelines‘. The song is an anthem about the competition and dedication that come with overcoming obstacles and achieving goals. During our first year of touring, we spent almost every day off at Dave & Busters. This was partly because we couldn’t afford hotels or fancy restaurants, but mostly because we found ourselves having to compete with each other at every turn, no matter how petty or small the stakes. It’s just part of who we are.

This video will give you a front row seat to our over competitiveness and a window into our darker sense of humor. The entire process of making this video allowed us to travel back in time and remember how much we love what we do and how we wouldn’t want to be doing this without each other and our fans.”

I Prevail’s Brian Burkheiser Undergoes Surgery After Suffering A Vocal Injury

I Prevail’s Brian Burkheiser recently underwent surgery after suffering a vocal injury. He shared the following Instagram post regarding that:

As many of you know, I suffered a vocal injury on the latest I Prevail tour. Initially, I tried my hardest to work through it, but as time went on the pain only got worse and it was determined I would need to go home to Michigan to be examined by my vocal doctor. I went in with optimism, but unfortunately my worst fear came true. I developed a polyp on my vocal cord and after it didn’t respond to treatment or look to be healing on it’s own, it needed to be surgically removed. Luckily though, my surgery was successfully done by one of the best laryngologist in the country, Dr. Adam Rubin. I'm very grateful to him and his whole team who have helped me try to keep a positive light throughout this process and make my recovery as smooth as possible. Physically and mentally these last few months have been some of the most challenging of my life, but I know this experience will only make me a stronger person going forward. I've never been one to back down from a challenge, and I sure as hell am not going to start now. To end this, I just wanted to say thank to everyone who has continued to support I Prevail over the years. You are the reason we do this. It meant so much to me that everyone continued to come out and support the shows where I was unable to perform. I want to give a huge thank you to my brothers in the band, especially @eric_prevail and @dylan_prevail for stepping up and carrying parts for me in my absence. It's time to come back stronger than ever. It's time to start writing LP2.

I Prevail Premiere “Already Dead” Video

I Prevail have premiered a new video for “Already Dead” off their debut album “Lifelines.” The clip was directed by Samuel Halleen and stars Kyle Gass (Tenacious D).

Steve Menoian said the following:

“We wanted to make a video for ‘Already Dead‘ because it gets a great reaction live and is so much fun to play. When Kyle Gass agreed to collaborate with us, it became a bucket list dream come true.”

I Prevail Premiere “Lifelines” Video

I Prevail have premiered a new video for the title track of their album “Lifelines.” Check it out below:

Brian Burkheiser said the following:

“‘Lifelines‘ is no doubt our proudest video to date. We set out to create something that embodied what ‘Lifelines‘ as a song and as an album really meant to us. It centers around the harsh reality that life doesn’t care about what you have planned. The biggest moments, whether ones of amazing opportunity or painful loss, are coming no matter what. How you choose to respond makes you who you are. That’s what we wanted to express. This video became even more special to us when we had the chance to turn our creative process into a way to bring awareness to an amazing cause.

The video was filmed at a magical oasis of hope called the Downtown Boxing Gym in Detroit. With great inspiration and support from the owner Coach Khali Sweeney. Coach Khali and his team are straight up HEROES, changing the lives of young people in Detroit, a place where it is greatly needed. They bring kids in from the Public School system and provide a safe environment with a focus on education first, using the self discipline of reading books together with the camaraderie that a sport like boxing.

They build bodies and minds with an eye to the making of future leaders. There is no such thing as a “bad kid” to this organization. To see the positive impact this is having first hand was truly inspiring and something we couldn’t be happier to support. They are truly making positive lifelines and we are honored to have worked with them in their home base.”
