Rising trio Against The Current take us into dark adventure with their brand new single “weapon“
The new single “weapon” follows the trio’s October release “that won’t save us” produced by Matt Squire [Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, All Time Low], which marked the first taste of new music since the band’s 2018 album Past Lives, and found the group returning to their guitar-driven roots.
Frontwoman Chrissy Costanza shares, “‘weapon’ is about the invisible wars we wage within ourselves, where we are simultaneously the protagonist and the antagonist of our own story. I’ve spent so much time being my own worst enemy, as the weapon that destroys relationships I care about. This song is about that battle and the victory I strive for but always seem to fall short of. We wrote it in a time of darkness that existed both in the world around us but also in my own head. This song is a triumph over that darkness.’”
The group’s 2018 follow up album Past Lives garnered attention from the likes of NME and Upset Magazine, while debut album IN OUR BONES immediately entered Billboard’s “Top New Artists” chart at #2 upon its May 2016 release.
Led by charismatic singer Chrissy Costanza alongside Dan Gow (guitar, vocals) and Will Ferri (drums, keyboards, vocals), the band has quickly established themselves as an original force all their own.
Expanding her impact in the gaming world, Chrissy joined forces with Cailin Russo for the 2019 League of Legends tournament theme “Phoenix”, and is currently the host of VENN’s (Videogame Entertainment News Network) new Guest House series, a weekly interactive discovery program showcasing gamers, celebrities, athletes, and musicians.
Known for their thrilling live shows, ATC has headlined three of their own world tours, including 2018’s “Past Lives World Tour”, played on Reading and Leeds’ Main Stage in 2019 and were greeted by an in-person audience of 50,000 and nearly 100 million streaming at Beijing National Stadium for their performance of the official 2017 League of Legends World Championship anthem, “Legends Never Die”.
