Issues is a metalcore band residing from Atlanta, Georgia. The band’s current lineup consists of Tyler Carter (clean vocals), Michael Bohn (unclean vocals), AJ Rebollo (guitar), Tyler “Scout” Acord (keyboard/synthesizer), Skyler Acord (bass), and Josh Manuel (drums). Issues is also well known because of the feud with the band Woe, Is Me. Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn (former members of Woe, Is Me) both left the band due to conflicts with the drummer Austin Thornton, (who eventually got kicked out of the band anyway) and formed their current band, Issues in 2012.
Eventually, on October 2, 2012, they released their first single entitled “King of Amarillo.” About a month later, on November 13, 2012, Issues debuted their first EP entitled, “Black Diamonds.” They are now set to release an acoustic EP this year called “Diamond Dreams” – but there is not an official release date yet.
On July 4, 2013, the band released a single called “Hooligans.” This has been confirmed to NOT be on their full length. On September 6, 2013, Tyler Carter posted on his website that he officially finished the vocals on the full length, and also that it will be a self-titled record. Finally, on the next day, Michael Bohn tweeted that the full length album was finished, but did not give a release date or any more information regarding the album.
