ISLANDER have released their anxiously awaited full length album Violence & Destruction on Victory Records. Hailed as one of Revolver’s ‘Most Anticipated Album of 2014’, this gripping set of powerful and potent rock anthems will catapult ISLANDER to the top of your playlist.
Produced by Cameron Webb (Alkaline Trio, Weezer), Violence & Destruction takes listeners through a soaring, layered musical landscape.
Vocalist Mikey Carvajal explains “We don’t believe art is something that we should tell people what they should think about. Instead, the hope is that the art would inspire people to explore things for themselves”. Violence & Destruction is loaded with dynamic tracks and the exceptional single “Coconut Dracula”. Carvajal continues “There are elements of hardcore, punk, hip hop, new wave….we just love music”.
Carvajal discusses the stories behind each track exclusively at RockSound.tv.
ISLANDER continue their modern rock conquest through 2014 appearing at the annual Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival on the Victory Records Stage.
