“We were all passionate about making a different-sounding album and that was really liberating,” says vocalist Tyler Carter. “The band’s grown a lot both as people and musicians and I think you can really hear that on this record. I’m proud of the work and creativity we put into it and can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”

ISSUES are currently headlining the Monster Energy Outbreak Tour, which kicked off this past weekend in Sacramento, CA, with openers Crown The Empire, One OK Rock and Night Verses.

Since the release of 2012’s debut EP Black Diamonds (which hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock and Top independent Albums charts), ISSUES has earned “Artist of the Year” honors at the 2015 Alternative Press Music Awards, shared stages with the likes of Linkin Park, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon and PVRIS, amassed over 40,000,000 Spotify streams and 20,000,000 YouTube views, and built a diehard international fanbase whose members number in the hundreds of thousands.
