Late last year, Issues revealed that they were formally breaking up and announced a handful of farewell shows.
Those gigs will be going down in the U.S. in the coming weeks, but before then, the band — guitarist Adrian Rebollo, bassist Skyler Acord, and drummer-unclean vocalist Josh Manuel — have given fans one more parting gift: their last-ever song.

In 2020, Issues fired their singer Tyler Carter after allegations of sexual assault and grooming emerged online, and then remained entirely inactive until they announced their breakup.
This new track, “Since I Lost You,” was written during that time, and without Carter in the band, bassist-backing vocalist Acord stepped up to the mic and handled the lead singer duties.
Even without Carter’s voice, the song has Issues’ signature soul-inflected post-hardcore sound, and you can listen below.
Issues’ farewell shows kick off this Friday (Jan. 12) at the Echoplex in LA. From there, they’ll play shows in Chicago, Anaheim, and their hometown of Atlanta, where their last-ever show will go down on Jan. 28 at the Masquerade.
But even fans who can’t attend will still be able to witness it. Issues have revealed that the final show will be exclusively livestreamed on Veeps, and you can sign up here to get access to the viewing.
