Call ‘em post hardcore, alternative metal or hard rock, Islander write fresh shit. The opening bass line of this new song “Coconut Dracula” alone is pretty cool, but guess what? The whole song is worth hearing! I don’t know if there are any actual coconut sucking vampires out there who somehow live off the delicious milk like vegan hipsters or if this is merely a new kind of cereal, perhaps? Islander don’t really fill us in but they want to be “someone just like you”, apparently.
“Coconut Dracula” will appear on their full length Violence & Destruction , out this summer on Victory Records.
The song is debuting via the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival site right HERE. The band will be rocking the Victory stage all summer and are certainly one of the most interesting bands on the tour this year. This may not be heavy enough but I promise these cats are worth checking out. Fans of P.O.D. and Bad Brains (both of whom feature members who have collaborated with this young band) should check Islander out. View the full list of Mayem dates here.
