I Prevail’s Brian Burkheiser smashes those angered at the band’s success: “We’re just a group of kids just trying to live our dream”

Post-hardcore band I Prevail have done in 3 years what very few bands accomplish in a lifetime. Sold-out tours to hundreds of kids a night, high billing on major festivals, and selling tens of thousands of records. Especially in this “scene”, the latter is unheard of in 2017.

Granted, this seemingly overnight success has also brought plenty of detractors out in full force. Sure, you’re free not to like the band. But why let I Prevail’s success upset you? You should be letting it inspire you to do something that you actually like.

Vocalist Brian Burkheiser took to Twitter earlier today to give one of these detractors a little lesson in how to deal with haters – eloquently, of course. Clearly the band’s success is not phony.
