Guest Blog: Islander — Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival, Week 3
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.
This week in Mayhem history was fun and tiring. We had a good time in Chicago with the fans and even got to see the Victory family. Andrew and I gave tour of the van for a the YouTube channel, Digital Tour Bus. We also attended the AP Music Awards and met a good many of our influences including Billy Corgan, Coolio, Hayley Williams, and CM Punk just to name a few.
We also played our first show in another country–Canada. I didn’t get to experience much of Canada (this was my first time out of the country, actually) other than Niagara Falls (beautiful) and a Flying J gas station. It had tons of candy and drinks that we don’t have in America, so that was super rad.
One day this week, I was super tired and some dear friends found out I hadn’t had much sleep and offered a place for me to sleep/rest for a few hours at The Ritz Carlton. Sometimes I forget to love people in return. It’s really easy to do with all of the distractions of the day to day. So to Chicago, award show celebrities, Canada, The Ritz Carlton, and our dear friends, MUCH LOVE. Love will tear you apart!
