CURRENTS is the new standard for death-infused metalcore. This is emotionally fraught and impossibly-angry music soaked in a cold, depressive atmosphere. CURRENTS explore the forbidden realms of a tortured psyche, searching for meaning amidst uncertain chaos and venom.
Heartache, physical abuse, abandonment, trauma – no dark emotion is spared examination. CURRENTS also turn their gaze outward, offering no mercy to man-made catastrophes like climate change and animal abuse. An exploitative system that inflicts such harm upon humanity and the entire world will not be spared the wrath within this explosive, weaponized bombast.
The Way It Ends, the second full-length album from these Connecticut bruisers, is a thematic and spiritual successor to their dense, bludgeoning, and smartly-constructed debut, The Place I Feel Safest (2017), and a direct follow-up to their blistering yet diverse EP, I Let The Devil In (2018).
Those well-versed in Hard Rock and Metal have embraced CURRENTS with full-throated passion. A combination of their contemporaries and influences, channeled through unique perspective and personal experience, has resulted in something revolutionary. It’s why they were handpicked for tours with bands including: August Burns Red, As I Lay Dying, We Came As Romans, and Fit For A King, and the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour.
As New Noise declared: “CURRENTS is a band not to be ignored.”
" 'A Flag To Wave' is about the search for identity and purpose," says singer Brian Wille. "This song goes out to anyone looking for meaning in their lives and to those who have already found it. Over the last four years, we have traveled the world trying to make a name for ourselves — playing shows with some of our favorite bands and touring all over the United States, Europe, the UK, and parts of Canada. We've been met with various hardships along the way, but have also been met with unprecedented kindness, support, and friendship that we will cherish and appreciate for the rest of our lives. There are no plans of stopping and with our new record, we plan to hit the world harder than ever."
