CURRENTS have announced a new album!
Titled The Death We Seek, the upcoming album from the Connecticut-based metalcore band is the follow-up to 2020’s The Way It Ends, and is scheduled to be released in May this year, via SharpTone Records.
Ryan Leitru and guitarist Chris Wiseman co-produced The Death We Seek, and the band’s guitarist engineered Wille’s vocals himself for the first time. Jeff Dunne [WAGE WAR, ICE NINE KILLS, MAKE THEM SUFFER] mixed the album.
Alongside the announcement of the new album, CURRENTS have released a new music video for a new song lifted from the upcoming album; Remember Me. the new song is the third single to be released from the upcoming album, following on from The Death We Seek and Vengeance.
“Remember Me is a statement to our growing divide between one another,” says singer Brian Wille about the new single. “The dark side to technology’s double-edged-sword is access to a font of information and public discourse, curated to engagement, and skewed to individual interest and world-view. The further we go in, the further we’re separated from the middle ground and impartial truths. Over the course of the Internet’s existence and the rise of social media empires, we’re beginning to fracture our relationships with one another over anything we can fight about, even going as far as to relish in the chaos and division. You can see the exact same event and come out with instant, infinite perspectives across the ideological spectrum; painted on a mass public forum accessible to billions of people. Driven further by algorithms and advertising, poison can spread quickly and have lasting outcomes on how we see each other and the world around us.
While disagreement and debate are not new, nor the real enemy here, we’ve all felt a particular strain to our closest ties over the last three years. This song is the release of that frustration and loss, and a call to find what brings us together and work through what sets us apart. Whether it’s a personal issue or an ideological impasse, we can all do better to practice empathy, understanding, and trust in those around us; that’s the only way we can collectively see through what’s real, and what’s interest-driven spectacle.”
