Going to an Issues concert has all of the ingredients a music fan could want: unbridled

energy, passion, and a non-stop stage presence.

Issues, a band out of Atlanta, is a metalcore band that has the appeal of both metal and

pop rock music, as lead vocal duties are shared by singer Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn.

The band recently launched their Monster Energy Outbreak Tour in San Francisco and

have dates playing throughout April from St. Louis to their hometown to Chicago, which

is the last leg of the tour on April 18.

The band headlines the tour with opening bands Night Verses, ONE OK ROCK and

Crown the Empire and overcame technical difficulties at the start of their set at the Ace of

Spades in Sacramento on March 20 to play a lengthy, electrifying concert in front of a

packed house.

Their newest album, Headspace, is set to drop May 20 on Rise Records. Those interested

can listen to the first single, ‘The Realest,’ which is available on Spotify or Google Play,

or to those who pre-order Headspace on Issues’ website or on iTunes.

The band is also set to play alongside fellow Outbreak band Crown the Empire on the

Vans Warped Tour, which recently announced its lineup.

The band consists of Carter and Bohn as well as guitarist A.J. Rebollo, bassist Skyler

Acord, and drummer Josh Manuel.

With the Black Diamonds EP (released in 2012), Diamond Dreams EP (released in 2014)

and ‘Issues’ album (released in 2014 as well) under its belt, Issues has embraced a variety

of sounds through the course of its short existence, including the softer, acoustic vibe of

Diamond Dreams, R&B and electronic elements (such as ‘King of Amarillo’ from Black


Issues’ next northern California tour date is August 6 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in

Mountain View on the Warped Tour.
