On May fourth, Islander released the fifth and final video from their most recent release, Power Under Control. The single, entitled “Casket,” is a hard-hitting but melodically brilliant tune. Frontman Mikey Carvajal says of the singe, “Lyrically, when I was writing “Casket,” I felt like I took a page out of the Johnny Cash playbook. I think the song speaks for itself, it's a jammer."
Recalling the evidently eventful video shoot, Carvajal recalls, “We actually shot this video on NASA's property in Florida. We were riding to a show with the director, Nathan Mowery, and saw a spot that looked good to dig some graves down a gravel road. Once a NASA helicopter started hovering right above us, it was pretty apparent that we probably should have picked another spot. Thankfully, we were already done shooting. Also, we didn't find any aliens, sadly."
Check out Islanders brand new video for “Casket” and catch them on tour with Bad Seed Rising and The Funeral Portrait June 7th through 13th, or with Korn, Stone Sour and Baby Metal June 15th through the 28th.
