Issues At Slam Dunk: “The Best Kind Of Street Party”

Issues at Slam Dunk Festival was FUN.

Here's what we learned watching them play.

THERE'S STILL BIG CROSSOVER POTENTIAL HERE
'Never Lose Your Flames' in particular sounds huge and almost radio-ready. For this song, passers by on the street outside nod their their along to the chorus. Now that's the sign of a great song.

THE NEW SONGS SOUND GREAT LIVE
The clatter and cacophony of 'The Realest' in particular makes loads more sense when there are hundreds of people losing their mind in equally manic fashion while the band rip through it.



STREET SHOWS RULE
Crammed into a narrow city centre street, the band and crowd literally make the tarmac shake on a thumping 'Stingray Affliction', making probably the closest experience to Warped US you can get in the UK and the best kind of street party - an Issues street party.


OUR THROATS HURT FROM SINGING
'Mad At Myself'. 'Never Lose Your Flames'. 'Hooligans'. Do this band have any songs that you can't sing along to?

'HOOLIGANS' IS STILL A TOTAL JAM
...but we don't know how to write the lyrics.
