Issues recently spoke about their past drama and differences with Woe, Is Me. Check out what the band had to say about the drama in an interview with MindEqualsBlown below after the jump.

I hate to bring it up, but there was known to be some bad blood between your band and Woe, Is Me. What is your relationship with them like now? How has it changed?

Michael: We just saw them yesterday.

Tyler: Yeah we just hung out with them yesterday. People move on and grow up and get over shit. It’s not like in the rap world where it’s like, “Oh you shot me. You shot me, so fuckin’ now we can never be homies.” It was just literally like a fall out and drama. Seriously, like nothing some high schoolers couldn’t resolve.

I’ve also noticed that your song “King of Amarillo” and Woe, Is Me’s song, “I’ve Told You Once” were released on the same day. Both of your bands are signed to Velocity Records, a branch of Rise Records. Do you think that Rise Records was purposely instigating conflict for commercial gain?

Tyler: That was a label idea. We were okay with it. We wrote the song as a diss and they got back at us with another diss. Really we just wrote the song because I never had a chance to respond to “Vengeance.” The label decided to make it like a battle and it was entertaining I guess. They definitely didn’t do it for commercial gain. They believe in both bands and we were just starting up.

Michael: Who wouldn’t want to see that, you know?

Tyler: Yeah it’s entertaining, like who’s going to have the last word? Who’s going to say what? But if anybody did it for commercial gain, it was us. And that’s why we rewrote the acoustic version because we wanted to apologize for using the drama with Woe, Is Me, and dissing on them, to kick-start our career. We’re rewriting the new song so that instead of making fun of them, we’re making fun of ourselves for being such turds.
