Against The Current “Weapon”


     
Frontwoman Chrissy
Costanza
explains, “‘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.’”

      “weapon” follows the
trio’s October release, “
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” 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.

Against The Current
have earned accolades and a faithful fan following with their brand of pop,
rock, and indie sounds. The group’s 2018 sophomore effort 
Past Lives was praised by Billboard for its “euphoric hooks” and
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. 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.”

     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.
