I PREVAIL NOMINATED FOR TWO 2020 GRAMMY AWARDS FOR BEST ROCK ALBUM FOR TRAUMA + BEST METAL PERFORMANCE FOR “BOW DOWN”
Capping off a banner year highlighted by over 100 million streams, sold-out headline shows, a Top 15 debut on the Top 200, and acclaim from Billboard and more, rock music’s biggest breakout band I Prevail garner their first-ever GRAMMY® Award nominations. The band garnered two nominations this year in the categories of Best Rock Album for Trauma and for Best Metal Performance for “Bow Down.”
The 62nd Annual GRAMMY® Awards broadcast on CBS Sunday January 26, 2020.

This milestone further affirms the platinum-certified Detroit quartet as 2019’s biggest breakthrough rock band, inching its way towards mainstream domination. The group sold out its largest headline tour to date in the Spring and Summer and currently serves as direct support to A Day To Remember in arenas across the country on the Degenerates Tour. The band opened up about the story behind Trauma in a deep BILLBOARD article. Plus, LOUDWIRE named it among the “Best Rock Albums of 2019…So Far.” These accolades and more position the record as a favorite for year-end lists.
The videos for “Bow Down,” “Breaking Down,” “Hurricane,” and “Gasoline” have accumulated almost 25 million combined views.
The story of I Prevail hits even harder than the music. They took a mental health breakdown, turned it into a powerful body of work, and made an audience connection online and I.R.L. on par with that of a pop or hip-hop act. These numbers—100 million streams and 100 million views and a Top 15 debut on the Billboard Top 200—remain unprecedented for rock. Trauma shocked the system quietly and continues to do so.

ABOUT I PREVAIL:
Gold-certified Michigan quartet I Prevail refashion, re-up, and recharge rock music on their anxiously awaited 2019 sophomore offering, Trauma [Fearless Records]. If anybody can elevate the genre to mainstream ubiquity once more, it’s this band. Since their 2014 arrival, they set a precedent to catalyze rock’s evolution. The band put up astounding numbers rarely synonymous with the genre or their peers, for that matter. Nearing half-a-billion streams and 115 million YouTube views, they moved over 500,000 albums worldwide, notched three #1 singles on SiriusXM Octane, and played 500-plus shows in just three years. Not to mention, they achieved a gold single in the form of their take on Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” from the Heart Vs. Mind EP. On the mega-anticipated 2019 offering Trauma, they uplift rock to a plateau where soundscapes can unpredictably toss and turn between heavy metal, alternative, hip-hop, and electronic moods without warning, boundaries, or rules. Meanwhile, the lyrics team with confessional emotionality as if ripped from the pages of a secret diary. Vulnerable, vital, and visceral, the 15-track opus illuminates the future, and it’s as bright and bold as the singles “Breaking Down” and “Bow Down.” Rock may never be the same after this Trauma.
