Mayhem Festival Discovery: Islander, ‘Coconut Dracula’

Mayhem Festival is always a great place to discover new bands. This year, the festival featured three side stages, and each offered a mix of new and veteran talent.

I discovered a few bands new to my ears at Mayhem Festival at DTE Energy Music Festival last week. Islander is one that really stands out.

Islander hail from Greenville, S.C., and make a mix of nu-metal and rock that’s melodic but still heavy. Lead singer Mikey Carvajal is very active with the Whosoevers, an outreach and support organization that includes a bunch of Christians, including Sonny Sandoval of P.O.D., Brian “Head” Welch of Korn and Love and Death and more.

Check out Islander’s new single, “Coconut Dracula,” above! It’s off their new Victory Records release, “Violence and Destruction.”
