Islander vs. Incubus – Cage Match
There's no "I" in team, but there's two "I" bands in this week's Cage Match. Islander emerged victorious in their first Cage Match battle, as the atmospheric track "New Wave" bested Starset's "Carnivore" in what turned out to be a tight fight all week long. Though Islander led wire-to-wire, the margin of victory was actually quite close. So does Islander have it in them to make it two-for-two in the Cage Match?
They'll square off against another "I" band, Incubus, as the band enters the Cage Match with their new single "Absolution Calling." The hypnotic rock track is featured on the group's upcoming Trust Fall, Side A EP. You can look for the band starting to include the song into their live sets. Their current itinerary can be found at this location.
So take a listen to both songs in the players provided and then let us know whether you want Islander's "New Wave" or Incubus' "Absolution Calling" to advance in this Loudwire Cage Match.
