'Diamond Dreams' sees the metalcore sextet reworking a bunch of live favourites... and they've even got some mates in on the act.
Nu mosh champs Issues might have made their name blending the heavier genres, but over the weekend they announced that they're set to strip things back a little on their next release.
Exact details and dates are yet to be confirmed, but the band revealed to AltPress that they will be reworking eight of their tracks for the 'Diamonds Dreams' EP. Speaking of the release, the band have said:
"We had a lot of fun making this record, being able to reimagine songs and show that we aren't just metalcore kids, or whatever you wanna call us. We are multitalented, and we aren't set on one taste of music; we respect and appreciate all variations. Sorry it took so long to put this out, guys!"
The artwork looks like this...
and the tracklisting like this...
(And yes, that does say 'Reimagined By Neck Deep Collective...' under 'Never Lose Your Flames'!)
While we wait for more info on all of that, have a watch of Issues' latest video 'Mad At Myself', yeah?
Issues will supporting Bring Me The Horizon at London’s Wembley Arena on December 05 alongside Young Guns and Sleepwave. Don't miss that one. Seriously.
Sure, Gerard Way might have announced a Brixton Academy show, and yeah, we might have a new Weezer song to wrap our ears around. But what about all the non-important stuff you missed this week, hmm? Who's keeping tabs on that? Oh. We are.
In a new interview with Wondering Sound, the Blink-182 man opens up about those crucial years of the band, adding that their label would "make it look like we really were some kind of erotic boy band or some shit".
