Week 3 - Against the Current, Milan
About the Bands:
Against the Current
After unveiling their debut album, In Our Bones, in 2016, Against The Current was inspired to change things up. The alt-pop group, who formed in Poughkeepsie in 2011, knew that it was time to evolve the way they wrote songs and allow for the music to surprise them in the studio. They looked to “Wasteland,” a track on In Our Bones, as inspiration for how using new instrumentation and sounds could create something both familiar and unexpected. The band’s second album, Past Lives, kicks everything up a notch.
The album was written and recorded over the course of a year, with the musicians penning over 40 song ideas in total. In Our Bones debuted at No. 2 on Billboard's Top New Artists chart when it dropped in May of 2016, and Against The Current boasts a notably loyal fanbase, as evidenced by their strong social stats. With over 301 million channel views on YouTube (as well as 1 million followers on Chrissy’s personal Instagram), the band has developed an important relationship with their listeners, many of whom have grown up alongside the musicians over the past few years. The band has toured globally, always willing to share authentic emotions and experiences with their audience.
Since 2015, Against The Current has embarked on two headlining world tours, including the “In Our Bones” tour in 2016, and has performed as part of the Vans Warped Tour. They’ve seen incredible success all over the globe, including throughout Asia and in the U.K. The band also joined All Time Low and Good Charlotte on the “Back to the Future Hearts” and supported Fall Out Boy’s 2018 “MANIA” Tour, always building their fanbase up along the way. Past Lives brings the opportunity for bigger and – even better – stage shows, too. With this album, Against The Current moves into the next phase of their already impressive career, opening a new chapter and inviting new fans to join in along the way.
