ISSUES was born in 2012, from the ashes of Woe, Is Me (an Atlanta-based metalcore act also featuring Carter and Bohn). The band just dropped a music video for single ‘Hero‘, taken from their album ‘Headspace‘. The latter was released via Rise Records.
‘Headspace‘ indeed offers crushing guitar riffs, commanding vocals, and brutally intense drumming. The album indeed surges with an untamable energy that’s nothing short of exhilarating.
‘Headspace‘ was recorded in Portland, Oregon, with producers Kris Crummett (Dance Gavin Dance…), Erik Ron, and Tyler “Scout” Acord. Throughout the album’s production, the band made a point of defying formula and constantly changing up the creative process.
“One of the most important things for us is to always try new ways of putting songs together,” says Carter.
