Islander have released the single from one of Revolver’s “Most Anticipated Albums of 2014”, Violence & Destruction. The single, “Coconut Dracula”, showcases Islander’s flawless integration of alt-rock stylings and blasts of melodic intensity, providing the scene with a much-needed breath of creativity and dynamism.

Freshly signed to Victory Records, Greenville quartet Islander owe a lot to a certain alt-metal mob if the four tracks on their debut EP are any indication. Deftones comparisons aside though, there are moments littered throughout the EP where Rage Against The Machine similarities rear their head while the appearance of Bad Brains legend H.R. on “Lucky Rabbit” is the icing on this slice of alt-metal/rap-rock/agro metal cake.
