“‘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.”
The song appears on the Connecticut band’s upcoming second album ‘The Way It Ends’, out June 5 via SharpTone Records – and can be pre-ordered here.
‘The Way It Ends’ is a thematic and spiritual successor to Currents’ dense, bludgeoning, and smartly constructed full-length debut, ‘The Place I Feel Safest‘ (2017), and a direct follow-up to the blistering and diverse EP, ‘I Let The Devil In’ (2018).
Currents is Brian Wille (vocals), Chris Wiseman (guitar), Ryan Castaldi (guitar), Christian Pulgarin (bass) and Matt Young (drums). 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.
Those well-versed in Meshuggah, Humanity’s Last Breath, Vildhjarta, and Architects have embraced Currents with full-throated passion. A combination of their contemporaries and influences, channeled through unique perspective and personal experience, resulted in something revolutionary. It’s why they were handpicked for tours with August Burns Red, As I Lay Dying, We Came As Romans, Fit For a King, Born of Osiris, and the Impericon Never Say Die! Tour.
As New Noise declared: “Currents is a band not to be ignored”. Currents second studio album, ‘The Way It Ends’, will be available everywhere Friday June 5 through SharpTone records. New single “A Flag To Wave” is available to purchase and stream now at https://shrptn.co/aflagtowave.
