I Prevail, Issues, and Justin Stone brought the heat to Old National Center in Indianapolis, IN on August 8th. The packed tour featured I Prevail still riding high off the success of their sophomore album Trauma, Issues are continuing to support their newest single “Tapping Out”, and the music scene was introduced to the talented Justin Stone. Our photographer Mya Tolliver caught all the action.
Having crossed paths many times over the years, the careers of both Tyler Carter and the late Kyle Pavone of We Came As Romans have become almost interwoven in the modern post-hardcore scene. A short time ago, the Issues frontman released a new video honoring Kyle, where he talks about Kyle’s life and that his untimely death is, in his words, “hard to accept”. It’s a genuinely heartfelt video, so if you have the time to watch it, it’s highly recommended.
We Came As Romans will be celebrating the life of Kyle Pavone with a special tribute show on October 28th. The lineup includes August Burns Red’s Jake Luhrs; Memphis May Fire’s Matty Mullins; I Prevail’s Eric Vanlerberghe, members of Born of Osiris, For Today, and Nick Sampson.

Having recently parted ways with vocalist Michael Bohn, acclaimed rock band Issues have had, well, issues dispelling rumors about how the band would change without their primary screamer. Luckily for Issues, they have a tremendous amount of musical talent, and the band’s first show as a four-piece went swimmingly – with Tyler Carter in particular truly being unleashed behind the microphone. You need only view the video of the band performing “Blue Wall” at Download for a taste of what the band sounds like now – and on upcoming future material, as well. Perhaps we’ll get a taste of it this summer, as the band plays the final Vans Warped Tour.
