Islander head out on tour with Korn and Suicide Silence in a few days, so with the Pope releasing the song “Wake Up! Go! Go! Forward!” just a few days ago, the band has now released their recently recorded song with nearly the same name. Such divine timing!
Said vocalist Mikey Carvajal to AltPress:
“I woke up yesterday morning and saw that the pope was dropping an album called Wake Up! The irony of it is that we recorded a song of our own called “Wake Up!” a month ago. We didn’t intend on releasing it today—as we are in the middle of promoting our radio single “Cold Speak,” which is at #29 right now on the charts. But the pope has really left us with no choice.”
Islander’s latest album is Violence & Destruction, which came out in 2014 on Victory Records. They start their tour with Korn later this week, who will be playing their debut album in its entirety in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the release.
