Guest Blog: Islander — Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Week 2
Islander recently released their debut full-length, ‘Violence & Destruction,’ and are currently rocking stages across this great nation as part of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. While they are out on that tour, the band’s vocalist, Mikey Carvajal, will be providing us with updates and photos from the road.
Another week has come and gone and we just woke up at another rest stop. Some of the highlights that happened this week were, our bassist, Doot’s birthday at Red Rocks in Colorado, doughnuts and movie time with our brothers in Korn (Voodoo Doughnuts in Denver and The Planet of the Apes), gas station pizza, tattoos with my wife in Las Vegas, and learning about who makes the best type of socks from Fieldy.
For the record, Stance definitely makes the most comfortable and coolest looking socks. This week has been crazy for us. Our debut record, Violence & Destruction, came out just a week ago, we have a top 40 single on rock radio, and Mayhem has been beyond good to us. But the best thing yet is that we’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many of YOU.
We have really been blown away at all of the love we have received in such a short amount of time in such an over saturated industry. In the words of a former king, thank you… thank you very much.
