Looking for an all ages, pop punk, metal, and electronic leaning escape for this evening? Rocketown has you covered. Presented by Journeys, buzzy pop metalcore act Issues return for a headlining outing with their “Thanks for the Invite” Tour, and have an impressive lineup of Ghost Town, Nightmares, and Marmozets backing them. Read on for details and grab your tickets here, because you really don’t want to miss this one!
Atlanta-based Issues have been a buzzy part of the scene pretty much since day one, so, while we were impressed, we weren’t surprised to see their eponymous debut full-length album nab a top 10 spot in the Billboard charts upon its release earlier this year. Combining elements of pop punk, metalcore, and nu metal, the group are propelled to an unparalleled level by the smooth, r&b stylings of powerhouse co-vocalist Tyler Carter. Come see what the hype is all about for yourself; these guys are the real deal.
Hailing from LA, Ghost Town channel Issues’ knack for juxtaposing melody with metal-leaning riffs, but dial up an extra element of electronic flourish, along with a thematic affinity for horror. Their sophomore full-length, The After Party, debuted over the summer, and climbed to the number one spot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.
Based in Issues’ hometown of Atlanta, melodic rock/metal act Nightmares certainly have a lot in common with the musical sensibilities of the evening’s headliners, and have even collaborated with Tyler Carter (see below). Their Rise Records debut album, Suspiria, is out now!
UK rockers Marmozets open the show with the most diverse sound of the bunch, channeling more of an affinity for post-hardcore and alternative rock. These guys alone are worth the price of admission, and, if you don’t believe, just give their recent debut full-length, The Weird and Wonderful Marmozets a spin!
Issues, Ghost Town, Nightmares, and Marmozets will perform tonight, Nov. 12 at Rocketown. The show is all ages, begins at 6p.m., and tickets are available for $22.
