Currents Unleashed a Crushing New Single with “Vengeance”
While you were busy stuffing your face with bird carcasses and butter, the Connecticut-based metalcore outfit Currents dropped a new single that’s sonically denser than a dead star. Seriously, this thing’s so heavy it warps the light around it.
The track, titled “Vengeance,” is the band’s follow up to the track they released back in August, “The Death We Seek.” As you can tell from the visualizer/lyric video below, this song’s tuned real low, has a killer riff, and doesn’t let up. Mix that all up with vocalist Brian Wille’s apocalyptic vocal work and you’ve got one hell of a track.
According to Wille, the track’s heaping piles of hopelessness and fury are by design thanks to the collective shitstorm we’ve all been enduring for a while now.
“‘Vengeance’ is the manifestation of pent-up aggression over the last few years since the release of our album The Way it Ends. It’s becoming disillusioned, taking yourself to places you never thought you’d be, and the rage and despair that comes along with that. It also talks about the desire to let those feelings go and to move forward, but not without digging deeper into that negativity first and exploring the satisfaction that comes with the right revenge…”
Though there’s no solid talk of a new album just yet, we already know 2023 is going to be a busy one for Currents, what with their upcoming tour with Parkway Drive and Memphis May Fire. But take special note if you’re in the Hartford, Connecticut area on December 15, because Current will be playing a special “holiday hometown show” with Silent Planet, Invent Animate, Phinehas, and Dreamwake as the night’s support acts. You can check out the dates for their 2023 tour below.
But for now, hit play on the video below and sink into this one.
