"Issues" is a single by Escape the Fate off of their 2010 self-titled album.[1][2] It was released as a digital single on iTunes September 14, 2010.[3] However, the song leaked early via KROQ Radio on September 9, 2010.[4][5] This song debuted at No. 48 on America's Music Charts for Active Rock,[6] currently No. 27 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and debut No. 32 on both the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, and No. 39 on the Billboard Rock Songs chart.

Music video[edit]

The music video was released on September 28, 2010 and was directed by P.R. Brown. The video presents a narrative that is told out of chronology. It features the band members playing in a Churchlike building. Towards the end of the story (but shown throughout the video) it starts to show a mob of people breaking into the church and attacking all the band members, capturing them. The mob carries Craig, Monte, Max, and Robert outside where Max is seen being tied to a wooden stake, where he is subsequently burned. Monte is tied up in a similar action, however his rope is pulled as he falls in to a lake (Though, in the 'making of' video it is revealed that he was originally meant to be pulled into a pit of spikes). Robert is forced to lean his head against a stump, while a man with axe is implied to have chopped his head off. Meanwhile, Craig is tied to a noose, and is seen barely keeping himself up by lifting his body up by pushing on a stick with his foot. When the video ends, the stick cracks and breaks, it is implied that the noose breaks Craig's neck.
