Last weekend, Issues left fans in a tizzy when they took to social media to tease that they had some major news scheduled to be revealed later that week. “I feel like I wanna announce something on June 21st…#Headspace,” said the post written on the group’s official Twitter page. A couple of days after the initial post was uploaded, the group followed-up that message with one that read: “Don’t know if we can wait until tomorrow. Might have to be today…” with a thinking emoji. As it turns out, the band couldn’t wait the extra 24 hours and confirmed what they had been hinting at for the past three days.
On Tuesday (June 20), the Georgia-based band announced a major tour set to take place during the fall months of 2017. Issues’ 2017 headlining tour will officially kick off on Sept. 24 at Revolution Live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and wrap up a month and half later on Nov. 3 at the House of Blues in New Orleans.
Los Angeles-based band Volumes has been confirmed as Issues’ direct supporting act for the full excursion while the identity of the second supporting act is being kept a secret. Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, June 23, here.
The upcoming tour will be in support of the group’s recently released record, Headspace. The album, their second studio record, was released back in May of 2016 through Rise Records. Headspace was met with generally positive reviews with only a handful of negative outlooks on the group’s sophomore effort. The album went on reach the number 20 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and earn the top spot on Billboard’s Alternative Albums chart with a total of 18,000 copies sold in the record’s first week.
