Issues Release New Single, Announce Album And UK/U.S. Tour Dates

Atlanta R&B-inspired metalcore crew Issues are back with a whole load of news: a brand-new single and video, details of their forthcoming album Beautiful Oblivion, and UK and U.S. tour dates.

Up first is the band's new music: Drink About It, a single that frontman Tyler Carter explains is "something everyone can relate to".

"The song, quite frankly, is about cheater being found out by their unfortunate partner," he says. The idea is this: 'I think you know– you know something… how much do you know…? I'm just gonna let them sweat it out a little bit.' But that play on words is also saying, 'You're all I drink about' and at this point I wanna sweat you out of my system."

The track is taken from Issues' new album Beautiful Oblivion, which is due out on October 4 via Rise Records.

The tracklist is as follows:

1. Here's To You
2. Drink About It
3. Find Forever
4. Tapping Out
5. Without You
6. Rain
7. Downfall
8. Second Best
9. Get It Right
10. Flexin
11. No Problem (Keep It Alive)
12. Your Sake
13. Beautiful Oblivion
