Issues Premiere “Flexin” Music Video

Issues have premiered a new video for their new song “Flexin.” This track is from the band’s new album “Beautiful Oblivion,” which will be released on October 4. Tyler Carter said the following about the song:

“I was burned out from writing the album. We had written and revised 30+ songs and I just had no juice. I wanted to goof around and have fun in my writing session, so I started freestyling about my current financial situation. When my band heard the song, they were amped. We made it Issues‘ style and our team loved how fun and different this song was. It’s definitely the black sheep of our album.”

Issues Premiere “Drink About It” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Beautiful Oblivion”

Issues have premiered a new video for their new song “Drink About It.” This track is from the band’s new album “Beautiful Oblivion,” which will be released on October 4. Tyler Carter said the following about the song:

“‘Drink About It‘ is something I feel everyone can relate to. The song, quite frankly, is about cheater being found out by their unfortunate partner. 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.”

Issues Premiere “Tapping Out” Music Video

Issues have premiered a new video for their song “Tapping Out.“ This track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album.

Tyler Carter commented:

“The song was most directly written about ‘tapping out’ of a relationship and its context plays to the theme of any type of fighting match. However, upon collaborating with director Dillon Novak, we felt that aiming the visual towards the idea of fighting with yourself would be more relatable and pack a deeper meaning.

Some of the things we wrote about were the real struggles we faced while on a hiatus and while making this album. ‘Win or lose’ is kinda where we are with this, and we have every ounce of our souls set on winning. Over-working, self-doubt, self-hatred, depression and anxiety, and not breathing fresh air enough — all of the things that have been a struggle during this chapter.”
