Watch Issues Battle With Themselves In New “Tapping Out” Video

In support of their first new song since 2016′s Headspace as well as their first new track as a four-piece, metalcore vets Issues have just debuted a brand new music video for their single “Tapping Out.” 

Opening up about the new song and video, vocalist Tyler Carter states, “The song was most directly written about ‘tapping out’ of a relationship and its context plays to the theme of any type of fighting match. However, upon collaborating with director Dillon Novak, we felt that aiming the visual towards the idea of fighting with yourself would be more relatable and pack a deeper meaning.”

Carter went on to add, “Some of the things we wrote about were the real struggles we faced while on a hiatus and while making this album. ‘Win or lose’ is kinda where we are with this and we have every ounce of our souls set on winning. Over-working, self-doubt, self-hatred, depression and anxiety, and not breathing fresh air enough — all of the things that have been a struggle during this chapter.”
