American powerhouse I Prevail are back with their cranked-up sound that’ll leave you shaking in your seat! Dropping lead single, Body Bag, the band have shared a low-fi edgy music video to tease the release of their new record, True Power.

The metal heavyweights have once again teamed up with award-winning producer Tyler Smith, who worked on the band’s last GRAMMY-nominated album Trauma, so get ready for some bangers!

Speaking on the previous album, I Prevail frontman Brian Burkheiser breaks down their progression: "Trauma was a very reflective record. I'd struggled with a major vocal injury and had been wondering whether I wanted to continue doing this thing at all. Eric [Vanlerberghe] had also lost his best friend over that same time, so there was a lot of heartache behind it.”

Moving into their next creative venture, Brian explains how True Power – which is due out on August 19 via Fearless Records – marks fresh next steps: “We were going into a new phase. After taking that trauma and figuring out how to channel it, you find this sense of newfound confidence and an ability to grow as a person: to become truly yourself.

“We took a 'no rules' mentality into the songwriting, and a lot of it is heavy as fuck, but the songs sound as diverse as they've ever been, too. There is a song on the record called There's Fear In Letting Go, and that became a huge mantra for us. Yeah, it can be scary letting go of things, but it can also help you take back everything that's yours: which is exactly what we've done on this album."
