Senior Editor Ryan J. Downey sat down with Issues vocalists Tyler Carter and Michael Bohn in the Gibson Brands Backstage Lounge at the 2015 APMAs following their Artist Of The Year win.

It got real strange up in here, but here's what we gathered:
– The lounge is actually a sauna, so Ryan and Tyler decided to be towel twinsies.
– Tyler doesn't do drugs.
– They both hated high school (but love 5 Seconds Of Summer).
– Michael got an extra mic.
– They loved Sum 41's performance.

On a (slightly) more serious note, Issues are in the thick of writing and recording! No confirmed date yet, but as Michael says, “the sooner the better.” Can't wait!

Stay tuned to APTV for more exclusive interviews with the show's presenters, performers and winners from the Gibson Lounge!
