I Prevail, The Word Alive, We Came As Romans, and Escape The Fate are bringing their signature sounds to the Newport Music Hall!
I Prevail was formed in Southfield (Michigan) in 2013 and currently consists of Brian Burkheiser (clean vocals), Eric Vanlerberghe (unclean vocals), Steve Menoian (lead guitar), Lee Runestad (drums), Dylan Bowman (rhythm guitar and backing vocals), and Tony Camposeo (bass guitar). Their musical style falls under the genres metalcore (a broad fusion genre of extreme metal and hardcore punk, noted for its use of breakdowns, which are slow, intense passages that are conducive to moshing), alternative metal (a style that infuses heavy metal with influences from alternative rock and other genres not normally associated with metal), and post hardcore (a subgenre of hardcore punk music that maintains its aggression and intensity, but emphasizes a greater degree of creative expression). The band quickly created a global fan base with their electrifying blend of aggressive rock, electronic pieces, and seamless melodies. In 2014 the band posted their cover of Taylor Swift's ‘Blank Space’ on YouTube and their fan base grew even further. The song hit #90 on Billboards’ Hot 100 chart, #23 on its US Mainstream Rock Songs chart, and has been viewed more than 22 million times on YouTube. The single has sold more than 250,000 copies and the band released its debut EP (Heart Vs. Mind) in December 2014.
