Following June's full-throttle track Body Bag, I Prevail are showing off their songwriting chops with new single Bad Things.

Both songs are taken from the band's upcoming album True Power, which is due out on August 19 via Fearless Records.

Teasing the band's step-up from most recent LP Trauma to True Power, vocalist Brian Burkheiser explains: "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.

"With True Power, 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."
