Gig Of The Week: Issues
R’n'b metal. Whoever you are and whatever your tastes, if you have any interest at all in alternative music, that right there is a phrase that is guaranteed to spark a reaction. Luckily, not only do Issues nail their mix of crushing riffs, nu metal flourishes and big, poppy hooks with aplomb, but they’re fast winning over legions of fans through offering something new, fresh and startlingly different in an age where people want more than just heavy verses and catchy choruses.
They’re going to be massive and it’s going to be brilliant, and this week, the Atlanta sextet kicked off their first ever UK tour alongside Crown The Empire. They still have nine dates left to go, and we reckon you’ll struggle to have a more fun, ridiculous and banger-filled night out any time soon, so check the dates below to see if they’re hitting up a venue near you and grab your ticket. Go on.
