EDITORS’ NOTES

A terrifically turbulent and topical LP from the Atlanta metalcore band, Headspace is full of surprises. “Blue Wall,” a hard-hitting song dedicated to the Black Lives Matter movement, boldly confronts police brutality: “We’re at war with the ones who protect and serve,” sing dueling vocalists Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn. It’s balanced out by radio-friendly, pop-leaning numbers such as “The Realest” and “Lost-n-Found (On a Roll)” and moodier cuts like “I Always Knew.” But the most adventurous is “Yung & Dum,” a screamo-meets-country collaboration with fellow Georgian Jon Langston that seems to purposefully defy genres.

Histoby,

This is gonna be killer. Gods be praised for bringing this to our ears.

Meh

TH3DARKWINGDUCK,

Meh. This album just sounds like a bunch of first attempts to write songs for a new album and they just stuck with them and moved forward and didn't work on making them stand out too much. Not a bad album not their best but easily forgettable after the next song plays.

About Issues

Issues are an Atlanta, Georgia metalcore band formed by former Woe, Is Me members Tyler Carter, Michael Bohn, and brothers Cory and Ben Ferris. Getting its start in 2012, the band -- also featuring the talents of AJ Rebollo, Case Snedecor, Tyler Acord, and Jake Vintson (with the latter two being brought in to replace the Ferris brothers, both of whom left to pursue other interests shortly after the band was formed) -- was quickly signed to Rise Records imprint Velocity just a few months after formation. Issues' first EP, Black Diamonds, arrived at the tail end of 2012. In early 2013 original drummer Case Snedecor left the band and was replaced by Josh Manuel. Issues entered the studio in mid-2013 to start work on their self-titled debut album, which was released in February 2014. A genre-blurring mix of metalcore, R&B-tinged pop, and Linkin Park-esque nu-metal DJ breaks, Issues debuted in the Top Ten of the Billboard 100. An acoustic EP, Diamond Dreams, was released later that year, featuring their 2013 stand-alone single, "Hooligans." Issues returned to the studio in 2015 to record their sophomore LP, Headspace, which was released in May 2016. ~ Gregory Heaney
