“It’s a song about feeling the sense of redundancy in years of substance dependency. There’s this kind of fear and anxiety that comes with this feeling. How much time you’ve spent being fucked up in your life, and can you overcome it? There’s a lot of sadness in realizing you wanna make a change but lie to yourself and haven’t taken the step to do so.” – said Hunter Martinez.
BIO:Human Issue’s first offering ‘Faceless.Nameless’ is raw and impactful; guttural vocals deliver lyrics that resonate, backed by fast, punchy riffs that make this debut hard to ignore. Drawing inspiration from fast-paced punk and hardcore, expressing an accumulation of pent-up frustration and anger, this release is honest, gritty and gripping. In its infancy, Human issue was a solo project with Hunter Martinez utilizing his strength on drums and challenging himself vocally.
As time went on the project evolved and formed into a concept of artist collaboration, each making their mark on the tracks, becoming a collective and complimenting each other’s contribution. This concept gives the project fluidity, each release going forward will feature different artists lending their talents as well as returning guests. This approach puts everyone involved front and center, delivering from their core.
Featuring members of Adolescents, A Global Threat, Dwarves, Melted, Decent Criminal, Crow Jane.
