Guitarist Joe Cocchi said this about the record:

"We took six months off over the winter too eat, sleep and breathe this album. It was by far the most in depth we've ever gone in the writing process. Since the inception of this band, our attitude has always been to completely trump our previous efforts in every aspect, and I think we did just that. We're beyond stoked for people to hear this one."

New It Prevails Song 9 replies

"Glimpse is a track that we feel offers a look at the whole spectrum of sounds and moods
we created on this album", vocalist Ian Fike stated. "Like a lot of subject matter on
this record, Glimpse holds lyrics pertaining to finding a way out of the dark places in
life. Self reflection and struggling to overcome personal demons".

Perdition is a new chapter in the life of It Prevails, a slightly darker and more
focused take on the band's signature sound. "After two years tracking this album we took
time to reshape and remold anything we felt didn't hold the "sound" we had created with
Perdition. What we were left with at the other side of this process is the album we
sought out to create 10 years ago when we started this band".

'Perdition' will be available this fall on Mediaskare Records.

You can listen to 'Glimpse' below:
