Following bassist Tony Camposeo's exit last December, who left to focus on producing music, I Prevail announced that Gabe Helguera (drums) and Eli Clark (bass) will be joining the band as touring members going forward.

The band formed in Southfield, Michigan, and released their debut EP, Heart Vs. Mind, on January 26, 2015. The band debuted their first full-length album, Lifelines, October 20 of last year. I Prevail will be headed out on Vans Warped Tour this summer. Check out the list of cities and dates below.
