L’heavy rock band Islander ha pubblicato oggi un nuovo album intitolato “It’s Not Easy Being Human” via Better Noise Music. In contemporanea con l’uscita del disco ecco poi il lyric video di “Skin Crawl (featuring Brian “Head” Welch of Korn, Dan Weyandt of Zao, Bruce Fithugh of Living Sacrifice)” . Con oltre 16 milioni di stream in tutto il mondo, il nuovo album si basa sulla loro capacità unica di offrire arte meditativa in mezzo al caos odierno, unendosi a una lunga lista di artisti che si trovano all’interno dei brani in veste di ospiti.
Mikey Carvajal dichiara: “It’s not easy being human. It’s something everyone can relate to. We know that this life isn’t easy, and as frequently as we’ve all heard the saying, “people are dealing with their own struggles that we may never know about,” we want to actually apply that knowledge into choosing to be good to one another. It’s as simple as the title says…“It’s Not Easy Being Human”, so we hope it encourages everyone to show each other a little grace in this crazy life. We included a ton of our friends on the record from Korn, Underoath, Zao, P.O.D., I Prevail, Bad Brains, Living Sacrifice, Lacey Sturm, Fire From The Gods, and Hyro The Hero. I’ve always been interested in seeing my favorite artists work together and we wanted to do that on this record, by leaning on one another, supporting one another, and just having a musical party. We even had the wrestling icon Sting star in a video for one of the tracks. A lot of rap albums have guests all over them, so we were like “why not just do that with our friends?”.
