ISLANDER DEBUT NEW LYRIC VIDEO “THINK IT OVER” FEATURING HR OF BAD BRAINS New Tour Dates Announced Power Under Control Pre-Orders Available on Limited Edition Colored Vinyl, Digital, CD Formats

ISLANDER and Metal Sucks are premiering “Think It Over,” the blistering new anthem from the upcoming album Power Under Control. The track features guest vocals from Bad Brains mouth piece HR, and is the follow up to the recently released single “Bad Guy.” Last night ISLANDER kicked off their first tour in support of Power Under Control at the Chicago Open Air Pre-Party, and newly announced headlining and festival dates are below with more coming soon.

Frontman Mikey Carvajal explains the track, “’Think It Over’ is a rally cry anthem to encourage the youth of today to think about their lives and to make good decisions. We are all born with a type of youthful wildness that if we allow to be tamed, will flourish into harnessed power rather than wasted energy. The idea is to be like a saddled horse instead of a frustrated stallion. To have Power Under Control.”

Founding ISLANDER member and vocalist Mikey Carvajal was joined by Love And Death/Korn wunderkind guitarist J.R. Bareis in 2015, leading the band on a powerful new path. The seeds of this relationship were planted during 2014’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Fest, when word of ISLANDER’s explosive performances quickly spread to the tour’s headliners Avenged Sevenfold and Korn - who flocked to watch the band almost daily. Bareis, who was then guitar tech for Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch, soon found himself in the role as ISLANDER’s new guitar player. Shortly thereafter, ISLANDER recruited bassist Zeke Vasquez (ex-ForeverAtLast), and after  a couple revolving seats behind the drum throne, newly exited Avenged Sevenfold skinsman Arin Ilejay became a permanent fixture snapping sticks and cymbals behind the kit.

Rolling Stone premiered “Darkness,” the first video from Power Under Control, and Loudwire premiered the follow up video for “Bad Guy.”
