It’s not very often that a band can make a cover from a different genre and make it their own. Meet I Prevail – they are one of those bands. They have done a cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” but with a heavy metal twist. Even if you aren’t a huge heavy metal fan, you might just fall in love with this band.
If Taylor Swift calls Lee, how awesome would it be if she sang with them? It could be magical, you never know.
Seriously, buy their new album, “Heart vs Mind” on iTunes, Google Play or Amazon Music. You will thank me later, I promise.
I’m so stoked that they were available for an interview. It was a spur of the moment thing.
1. How long have you guys been together?
We’ve been together for over a year.
2. Are there any plans for touring soon?
Yes we have big plans for touring very soon! No announcement on that yet though!
3. You’re an unsigned band. Do you think that’s working in your favor? Pros/Cons?
4. I love the cover of “Blank Space.” Have you heard any response from Taylor Swift?
No response from Taylor yet…. Lee is in pretty bad shape…. We’re doing everything we can to get the kid a phone call from her haha.
5. Anything that you would like to tell your fans?
We appreciate the support so much!! We would have never gotten our music to go viral without everyone pushing our videos!
6. Who influenced you musically when you were growing up?
We all had different influences growing up. Some were Third Eye Blind and Blink 182 early on. And later on other bands were Saosin and Underoath. Our biggest influences right now are A Day to Remember, We Came As Romans, and Bring Me The Horizon.
7. Is there anyone that you would like to work with? Other bands? Producers? Songwriters?
.We would love to play a show with A Day to Remember, We Came as Romans, or Bring Me The Horizon someday!
8. Have you had any ridiculous photo shoots yet?
No haha. Pretty standard photo shoots so far! Our music videos were definitely very crazy to shoot though!
9. listen to you on 89x. How supportive have radio stations been of your music?
89x has been playing our music quite a bit. There have been a ton of radio stations playing our songs across the U.S. Sirius Octane has been hugely supportive of us by playing us daily!
