Islander Premiere New Song “Freedom” Featuring AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods)

Islander have premiered a new song titled “Freedom.” This track features AJ Channer (Fire From The Gods) and a lyric video for it can be found below:

Islander’s Mikey Carvajal commented:

“I believe sometimes the things we call freedom enslave us. It’s easy to get caught up in our own vices or addictions. It’s important to constantly examine ourselves by asking, ‘Is this something I have control over… or are my own desires controlling me.’ Someone once said ‘freedom isn’t the freedom to do what we want – it’s the freedom to do what is right.’ That’s what I believe.”

Channer added:

“These days the idea of freedom has been completely misconstrued and manipulated. I am especially happy to feature on this song because freedom in the political sense might be the debate now, but freedom in the spiritual sense is somewhere that we need to focus more of our energy. I believe that’s what we are saying with this song.”

“In the early hours of October the 3rd 2013 near the Sicilian island of Lampedusa, an overcrowded fishing boat capsized, drowning 366 refugees, mostly Eritrean, fleeing one of the most terrifying military dictatorships on earth. The mediterranean crossing was the last leg of a long and dangerous journey in search of bread and dignity in Europe. A journey that ended upon a heartless sea, where dreams come to die.”

Refused proceeds from the sale of this coffee will benefit MOAS (the Migrant Offshore Aid Station). MOAS is dedicated to preventing loss of life at sea by providing assistance to migrants who find themselves in “
