There are rumours flying around that Issues screamer Michael Bohn has exited the group, meaning they could be down a vocalist for their forthcoming Aussie tour dates.
The Atlanta metalcore crew will be heading to our shores for Download Festival in March and performing a handful of sideshows with Good Charlotte, Falling In Reverse and Neck Deep while they’re in town, but it seems they might be doing it without their founding co-vocalist.
As Rock Feed points out, Bohn has removed any references Issues from his social media biographies, and has been visibly absent from any writing sessions where all of the other members have been snapped working on their third album.
Bohn is also not being followed on Twitter by his Issues co-vocalist and longtime bandmate from previous band Woe, Is Me, Tyler Carter, despite Carter following all of the other Issues members.
And the screamer is also not following any of his Issues bandmates on his own Twitter account, and has added the line “not a public figure” to his profile.
Again, it’s all just speculation at this point, as the band have yet to announce any lineup changes.
Michael Bohn responded to several fans on Twitter quizzing him about his position in the band, but then reportedly deleted a bunch of his responses, except for this one where he seems to vaguely deny leaving:
Ahh cause you left Issues?

We’ll bring you any updates on this sitch as it develops. Needless to say Issues new album will be a big departure if they’re doing it without Bohn’s trademark screams!
