Issues finally returned to Europe for a string of headliner shows! The last time the band came to Europe for headliner shows has been a couple of years, but now, the band is back with a very specific reason: promote the release of their brand new album 'Beautiful Oblivion'.

With the album not even a week before the first European show, the fans had gotten very little time to learn the lyrics to the brand new songs, but the Rotterdam crowd did quite well.

The band performed in front of an intimate crowd, which created quite the atmosphere throughout the show. As expected, Issues played a lot of songs from the brand new album, including the very diverse singles 'Tapping Out', 'Drink About It' and the downright epic 'Flexin'.

The setlist for the performance looked as followed:

Luckily, fan favourites from previous albums also made the list, with the beautiful 'Never Lose Your Flames' and the heavy 'Blue Wall' which discusses the issue of police brutality. Even though the new album 'Beautiful Oblivion' sees vocalist Tyler Carter hitting the high notes rather often, he stood his ground throughout the performance. Issues work like a well-oiled machine. AJ is always bringing the heavy guitar, bassist Skyler Acord is an entertainer of the highest shelf and drummer Josh Manuel is an absolute delight to see perform. Eva van Kuik was present this evening and captured the band's wonderful performance through her lens. Check out the photos she took below and let us know if you are going to any of the Issues shows.
