Fueled By Ramen recording artist Against The Current have unveiled their new EP fever, available now on all streaming services. The seven-track collection marks the first new body of work since the group’s 2018 album Past Lives, and is heralded by an official music video for “jump,” which is streaming now on Against The Current’s official YouTube channel. In celebration of the release, the trio have also announced a run of U.S. and European headline tour dates, kicking off this September.
Elaborating on the EP, Costanza commented, “In some ways, this is a debut. We have so many inspirations from the past, but we merged those with what currently inspires us to create something new. We finally figured it out. You can burn down the past version of yourself and become who you think you are now. This is undeniably Against The Current.”
Against The Current’s U.S. fever release shows kick off September 14th in Orlando, FL, marking the group’s first live performances since their 2019 European headline tour. The run will make stops at Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre and Brooklyn’s Elsewhere before wrapping at Boston, MA’s Sonia Nightclub. In March of 2022, the band will return to the road for “The Fever Tour,” a monthlong European trek. Pre-sale tickets for U.S. dates will be available beginning Monday, July 26th at 12pm ET, with general on-sale beginning Friday, July 30th at 12pm ET. General on-sale for all European dates begins Friday, July 30th at 10am local time. For more information visit www.atcofficial.com.
fever includes previously released singles “again&again (featuring guardin),” (written with Justin Courtney Pierre of Motion City Soundtrack, Sam DeRosa and Jon Lundin) “weapon,” and “that won’t save us.” “weapon” debuted in March and quickly made waves, with the official video racking up over two million views. The track was praised by Alternative Press as a “fiery, upbeat song reminiscent of early aughts emo punk,” while The Noise hailed “weapon” as a “powerful rock anthem.” The release followed the trio’s October single, “that won’t save us,” which premiered via FLOOD Magazine and was touted by Billboard as a “guitar-driven jam.” Produced by Matt Squire [Panic! At The Disco, Ariana Grande, All Time Low], “that won’t save us” found the group returning to its guitar-driven roots.
The group has built a massive social media audience, racking up more than two million YouTube subscribers and nearly 400 million views, with Costanza becoming one of the most recognizable female voices in the gaming industry and a major online presence all her own. Expanding her impact in the gaming world, Chrissy joined forces with Cailin Russo for the 2019 League of Legends tournament theme “Phoenix,” and recently hosted VENN’s (Videogame Entertainment News Network) Guest House series, a weekly interactive discovery program showcasing gamers, celebrities, athletes, and musicians.
