The hilarious Whitney Cummings comes to Atlanta in her "I'm Fine...and Other Lies" tour. She'll tell some of her best stories from her new book of the same title. Cummings is best known for her series Whitney and is creator and writer for 2 Broke Girls. Tickets go on sale July 14.
With their 2014 self-titled debut, ISSUES broke big by infusing their metal-punk hybrid with pop-perfect melodies and the heavy rhythms of hip-hop and R&B. On follow-up album Headspace, the Atlanta-based band takes that genre-bending to a bold new level, pushing further into their kaleidoscopic influences to carve out a sound that's fiercely inventive and deeply infectious.
Named "one of the most anticipated records of 2016" by Alternative Press, Headspace finds ISSUES matching their sonic exploration with daringly honest lyrics that reflect on everything from family strife to toxic relationships. "When I first started writing, I was holding back a bit and making the lyrics more poetic instead of really saying what I was going through," says vocalist Tyler Carter. "But the emotion behind everything was so powerful, and after a while I realized I needed the lyrics to match that intensity. I wanted to write about these things in a way that would help me let go of them forever and just feel totally liberated."
