Issues Are Covering The Pokémon Theme Song On Warped Tour


Post-hardcore outfit Issues are tearing it up on Warped Tour right now, and what better way to get your crowd involved than to cover the Pokémon theme song? Clearly they’re as excited for Pokémon GO as everybody else is.

Issues aren’t your ordinary Pokémon lovers though. These guys are devotees. They’ve invested some serious dosh into show equipment that’s extensively decked out in Pokémon skins and OG, BMO-toned Gameboy imagery. All we’re saying is that we’re pretty sure Issues caught ‘em all. If Nintendo up and sue these guys in the near future for the appropriation of their logo to the Pokémon font, all we’re saying is that it shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Being valuable members of the Pokémon fandom isn’t the only thing that Issues have gotten up to this year. The Atlanta crew also released the well-anticipated follow-up to their 2014 self-titled debut. Titled Headspace, the record dropped back in May via Rise Records. To get a taste for it, we recommend having a squiz of the clip for their recent single “Coma”, which features international model and albino pro model Shaun Ross.

Watch Issues take on the Pokémon theme song below.
