Stream the new Islander album, ‘Power Under Control’—exclusive

August 04 2016, 12:05 PM EDT By Brian Kraus


ISLANDER are exclusively streaming their sophomore album with us, Power Under Control. Officially released tomorrow on Victory Records, the band worked with producer Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, Silverstein, Sum 41) at NRG Studios, as they did for their first full-length, 2014's Violence & Destruction.

Power Under Control features the recording debut of drummer Arin Ilejay (ex-Avenged Sevenfold), guitarist J.R. Bareis (Love And Death) and bassist Zeke Vasquez (ex-Forever At Last).

ISLANDER SAYS:

“I've never been so honored to be a part of music,” confesses frontman Mikey Carvajal. “I truly believe this is the album that the world needs right now. The youth are tired of bands not writing their own songs and they are tired of no one speaking up for what's really going on. Rock and roll is supposed to be dangerous, and Power Under Control is far from safe.”
