Issues, who returned to the hard rock scene with the brilliant and bold banger “Tapping Out,” are pleased to announce they will release their new album Beautiful Oblivion on October 4 via Rise Records. The album takes the band’s signature cocktail of metallic groove, hip-hop aplomb, alternative echoes, and edgy pop appeal a step further. The Atlanta band has delivered an instantly irresistible collection of anthems where singer Tyler Carter‘s nimble delivery seamlessly slips from R&B swagger into hard-hitting heaviness.

The band has shared the new song and video “Drink About It.” Watch it here.

The video was directed by Dillon Novak (Issues, Dance Gavin Dance) and Cole Schwartz (Lyrical Lemonade, Juice WRLD, Wiz Khalifa).

“‘Drink About It’ is something I feel everyone can relate to,” says Carter. “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.”
