ISLANDER has announced details behind Power Under Control, their upcoming new album set for release on August 5th, 2016. The first video and album’s commencing track “Darkness” has also been released. Power Under Control features the recording debut of official members Arin Ilejay (ex-AVENGED SEVENFOLD) and J.R. Bareis (LOVE AND DEATH), further proving ISLANDER are a part of rock’s DNA as much as their contemporaries.

Watch the “Darkness” video on KNAC.COM right HERE.

ISLANDER founding 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 newly exited AVENGED SEVENFOLD skinsman Arin Ilejay became a permanent fixture snapping sticks and cymbals behind the kit.

Power Under Control is a concept album dealing with several characters,” Carvajal explains. “The songs stand on their own, but are meant to be listened in the same way that a book is to be read. If someone were to skip the chapters in a book, the story may be exciting, but a lot of the meanings would be lost. If the listener wants to understand the meaning of each song, they can better be understood when listening as a whole rather than treating this as a buffet.”

On the leadoff track, Carvajal says, “"Darkness" is the first song on the record and really sets the mood for where our character is in their life. It's a song about indulging in anything and everything that makes them feel good for a moment, regardless of the outcome. Sadly, this is where our character is at in "Darkness".”

In February 2016, ISLANDER again partnered with producer Cameron Webb (MOTORHEAD, ALKALINE TRIO) at NRG Studios and over the next eight weeks. the newly ignited foursome got to work on Power Under Control, recording twelve original tracks showcasing the quartet’s deeper complexion. Another familiar face in the fold is BAD BARINS frontman HR on the anthemic sing-along “Think It Over”.

ISLANDER will hit the road in support of Power Under Control, kicking things off at the Chicago Open Air Pre-Party on July 14th. Additional dates will be announced next week.
