Welcome to My Back Pages, a collaborative staff feature that will survey a landscape of renowned classics and unheralded gems alike, most of which no one around here ever writes a word about. The rules are simple and loose: we won’t cover anything from this millennium and we will avoid all or most AP.net favorites—though we might make an exception if something is nearing a milestone anniversary. Beyond that though, anything is fair game. So if you have an album, artist, or genre you would like to see discussed in this feature, feel free to throw us a few recs.

This week we have a double feature on deck for you, and yes we're talking about Springsteen--if you know...

I caught up again with Issues while they were in Portland, OR as part of A Day To Remember's U.S. Headliner, and you can read our interview here. In the interview we talk about a "re-imagining" of the band's debut EP Black Diamonds, titled Diamond Dreams, Warped Tour, as well as potentially working with Jeremy McKinnon in the future.
"With A Day To Remember, Pierce The Veil, and Silverstein, I learned the most by just watching and observing how headliners conduct themselves, how they act, as well as the caliber of show that they put on.
