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.”

“Beautiful Oblivion” Track Listing:

01. “Here’s To You”
02. “Drink About It”
03. “Find Forever”
