I Prevail played an oversold-out show at The Fillmore Silver Spring this past Saturday, in support of their new album released in August 2022, True Power. Accompanying bands on the bill included Yours Truly, Fit For a King, and Pierce the Veil.
The crowd became highly amped up after the stellar performance of Australian alternative band Yours Truly. Front woman Mikaila Delgado’s vocals reminded me so much of Paramore’s Hayley Williams that I couldn’t help getting chills while watching them on stage. What I appreciated the most was how they weren’t a group trying too hard to be “the next big band.” Yours Truly just did their thing and rocked the hell out of that stage with no bells or whistles needed. Their energy was more than enough.
Fit For a King was an entirely different story. I’ve only heard of them by name but never got the pleasure of seeing them until that night. And I have no clue what took me so long. The Texan metalcore band wasted no time jumping into their set, and just watching them was completely mesmerizing. During their set, bassist Ryan “Tuck” O’Leary took a break from jumping around on stage. He cut through the crowd and hopped onto the bar, sipping on a drink while playing his bass. He then proceeded to crowd surf back to the stage. Fit For a King was absolutely wild.
When Pierce the Veil started their set, the venue was nearly at full capacity, 20 people shy of 2,000. Apparently, it was all part of a feud the PTV fans have against I Prevail, believing PTV should be the headliner. So as part of their scheme, the die-hard PTV fans oversold-out shows just to watch the band then leave once their set was over. While it was a massive deal that PTV would break up then return again for this tour, it was still unnecessary drama as there were no clear issues between the band and the headliner. I mean, even I Prevail’s Eric Vanlerbleghe joined the band during one of their songs. Anyway, it was disappointing to see the crowd thin out a bit after PTV ended their set. Again, all unnecessary drama.
So, I Prevail. They started their set a tad bit late, but it was worth the wait. They played a majority of the songs from their new heavy-hitter album, TRUE POWER, two songs from their sophomore album, Lifelines (“Scars” and “Come and Get It”). The rest of the set had five from their previous record, TRAUMA, including a deeply personal favorite of mine, “Bow Down.” Words cannot begin to further describe how incredible they were without sounding like a fangirl instead of a music photojournalist. All I can say is eleven out of ten, would see them again.
The True Power Tour has a handful of dates coming up, including a second leg with Pierce the Veil, Fit For a King, and Stand Atlantic. Run, don’t walk to get a ticket. You don’t want to miss out on this tour.
