I Prevail Announce Rescheduled Tour Dates

Michigan metalcore crew I Prevail will be returning to the UK this summer.

I Prevail Announce Rescheduled Tour Dates

I Prevail's spring tour dates have now been rescheduled for August and September this year.

The Michigan gang were set to hit the UK soon for their Trauma Tour, but have pushed back these shows for a few months due to the many health and travel concerns related to coronavirus.

“In these very tough and strange times, we’re stoked to announce that all postponed dates from the EU/UK leg of The Trauma Tour have officially been rescheduled for this August/September," the band say.

"All previously purchased GA and VIP tickets will remain valid. We’ve also added some killer festivals and additional headlining shows to the route. Dream State will still be joining us on all headlining UK shows & in Dublin, Ireland. Support TBA for all European headlining dates.

“We’re hunkered down for now… but we’ll be back to crowdsurfing, circle-pits and walls of death in no time. Stay safe and see you soon. Oh yeah, keep washing your hands.”

Wise advice.

Catch I Prevail at the following dates in the UK:

August

26 Portsmouth Pyramids
27 Bristol O2 Academy
31 Manchester Academy

September

2 Glasgow SWG3
3 Nottingham Rock City
4 Leeds Beckett University
7 London O2 Forum Kentish Town
9 Dublin Academy

Back when the Trauma Tour was first announced, vocalist Eric Vanlerberghe told Kerrang! of his relationship with the UK, “It almost feels like another home for us – and especially in London. I’m thousands of miles away from home, but when you get to the shows and you talk to people and they share stories with us about how they connect to your music, you can’t help but feel a connection. It doesn’t matter where in the world you are.”

Discussing how I Prevail are the 'breakthrough' band in their genre, Eric explained of how he views the scene that he's a part of: “I feel like a lot of people are saying that rock’s dead, and a lot of people are saying it’s alive but we need to keep playing the same old songs. I look around and there are more than a handful of bands that are not forgetting their rock or metal roots but they’re trying new things, and that’s exciting to me. That’s exactly what’s going to keep this genre alive, and I think by the end of this year and the beginning of next year you’re going to see a rise of these hybrid bands. I think it’s about time that this new genre emerged, and people are going to have to start accepting that.”
