Nu Metallers ‘Islander’ Debut Video for ‘Casket’ New Tour Dates Revealed


Islander has premiered ‘Casket,’ the fifth and final video from their latest album, “Power Under Control,” exclusively at Revolver Magazine. “Would you rather be devoured by the hounds of hell?” asks vocalist Mikey Carvajal, as the standout clip showcases the rock ‘n’ roll band’s fearless pursuit into unexplored territory. The video comes as Islander prepare for some intimate club shows before joining the ‘Summer Of Serenity Tour’ alongside Korn, Stone Sour and Baby Metal.

“We actually shot this video on NASA’s property in Florida,” states Carvajal. “We were riding to a show with the director, Nathan Mowery, and saw a spot that looked good to dig some graves down a gravel road. Once a NASA helicopter started hovering right above us, it was pretty apparent that we probably should have picked another spot. Thankfully, we were already done shooting. Also, we didn’t find any aliens, sadly.”

On the track, he continues, “Lyrically, when I was writing ‘Casket,’ I felt like I took a page out of the Johnny Cash playbook. I think the song speaks for itself, it’s a jammer.”

Before teaming up with their former road comrades Korn, Islander has announced a batch of summer headlining dates with special guests Bad Seed Rising and The Funeral Portrait.

“Power Under Control” finds Islander doubling down on their alt-rock, punk via hip-hop inspired sound that’s more modern than retro. The highly anticipated sophomore album was released on August 5, 2016.
