Issues Member Won't Be Touring With The Band
. (TeamRock Radio) Issues keyboardist Tyler 'Scout' Acord won't tour with the band this year, he's confirmed - but his departure isn't permanent. The US metalcore outfit take to the road across Europe starting in March and have lined up 11 UK dates - but Acord has announced he's stepped back from live commitments to concentrate on other musical projects.
However, he's still part of the band and will join them later this month to begin work on the follow-up to their self-titled debut album which launched last year via Rise Records.
He says in a statement: "This decision has come from a very deep place in my heart, and was in no way an easy one to make. The reasons are simply because I want to be able focus on other things musically.
"Touring as keys and turntables in a band is fun but isn't what I want to be doing with my career. I have a passion for music production and drums and want to see how far I can take them. However, I will still play the same roll I've always had in the studio with Issues, helping to write and co produce the record."
