Why the hell is it raining so much?
Vocalist Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn - former members of Woe, Is Me - joined forces for a new band in 2012. That band was Issues.
Fusing metalcore, and pure pop gold, it was a fresh take on an old formula and resulted in standout debut EP ‘Black Diamonds’ in 2012.
2014’s self-titled full-length album followed to wide acclaim, and after that? The band - currently featuring guitarist AJ Rebollo, bassist Skyler Acord, drummer Josh Manuel and session member Tyler Acord - followed that up with 2016’s ‘Headspace’ and numerous stints on Vans Warped Tour and worldwide touring.
Chatting through their first musical memories, backstage in London.
How would they describe their new album? And if they had to choose a different band name what would it be?
Here we go.
The band's new album also features the singles 'Tapping Out' and 'Drink About It'.
The last time that ISSUES headlined London was 2016 - which made their show at The Underworld all the more special last week. Mac Praed was on hand to capture all of the action.
If you can't wait, you won't actually have to!
"My flexing is a problem..."
"Show me some ACTION".
It's finally happening!
This is 'Drink About It'.
The single is the band's first new music in three years.
Tyler Carter On New ISSUES:“Even The People Who Are Talking Shit About It Are Giving Us Inspiration”
"It feels like on the last album people weren’t talking enough. I would rather people be talking shit and talking good just to hear people talking about it." - Tyler Carter.
And it's heavier than you're expecting.
NEW MUSIC. NEW MUSIC. NEW MUSIC.
Includes a lot of "headbangers"...
Don Broco kicked off their arena tour in Manchester this weekend, with Neck Deep and ISSUES along for the ride. Mark Forrer was there to capture all the on and off-stage action.
Well this certainly sounds promising.
This is the cutest thing you will see today. No competition.
