Islander release “Casket” music video; reveal new tour dates with Bad Seed Rising and The Funeral Portrait

Islander have premiered a music video for their song “Casket”, check it out below courtesy of Revolver. Frontman Mikey Carvajal said of the Nathan Mowery-directed clip:

“We actually shot this video on NASA’s property in Florida. We were riding to a show with the director, Nathan Mowery, and saw a spot that looked good to dig some graves down a gravel road. Once a NASA helicopter started hovering right above us, it was pretty apparent that we probably should have picked another spot. Thankfully, we were already done shooting. Also, we didn’t find any aliens, sadly.”

Regarding the song itself, Carvajal added:

“Lyrically, when I was writing ‘Casket’, I felt like I took a page out of the Johnny Cash playbook. I think the song speaks for itself, it’s a jammer.”

The video for “Casket” is the fifth and final from their sophomore record Power Under Control, out now on Victory Records. Additionally, the group have announced a string of headlining dates with Bad Seed Rising and The Funeral Portrait; dates below.
