“Man, that song is probably like the next generation of Issues. It’s kind of like our evolution. This new record, we really all put everything we had,” the band told on Zane Lowe’s Beats. “And we try to mature and evolve as a band. And that song really is a great representation of where we’re headed. We’ve still got heavy elements but we’re really just trying to bring the groove and like the soft, emotional side of us, get past all that teenage angst that we started with.”

Issues have just finished their second US headline tour and are heading home for now. The band cannot wait to put out their new record, Headspace, even though the studio work wasn’t easy because of creative differences of Issues band members. In the end, the musicians agreed to put their egos aside and concentrate on working as a whole, and not as separate individuals fighting for their self-expression on the record.

Their previous album, 2014′ self-titled debut LP, reached #9 on the US Billboard 200 chart. It also hit #1 on Billboard’s Top Hard Rock Albums. The material for the forthcoming album, Headspace, was recorded in August 2015. At the end of last year, Issues won the award for Artist Of The Year at 2015 APMA Awards, where they shared the stage with Linkin Park, Of Mice & Men, Bring Me The Horizon and Pvris.
