Currents Set May Release For New Album “The Death We Seek”, Debut “Remember Me” Music Video


Metalcore outfit Currents have announced a May 05th release date for their new studio album “The Death We Seek“. That outing will emerge on SharpTone and can be pre-ordered here. Arriving alongside word of this new record is the debut of a Chris Klumpp-directed music video for its new single, “Remember Me“.

The group’s vocalist Brian Wille said of that:

“‘Remember Me‘ is a statement to our growing divide between one another. The dark side to technology’s double-edged-sword is access to a font of information and public discourse, curated to engagement, and skewed to individual interest and world-view. The further we go in, the further we’re separated from the middle ground and impartial truths.

Over the course of the Internet’s existence and the rise of social media empires, we’re beginning to fracture our relationships with one another over anything we can fight about, even going as far as to relish in the chaos and division. You can see the exact same event and come out with instant, infinite perspectives across the ideological spectrum; painted on a mass public forum accessible to billions of people. Driven further by algorithms and advertising, poison can spread quickly and have lasting outcomes on how we see each other and the world around us.

While disagreement and debate are not new, nor the real enemy here, we’ve all felt a particular strain to our closest ties over the last three years. This song is the release of that frustration and loss, and a call to find what brings us together and work through what sets us apart. Whether it’s a personal issue or an ideological impasse, we can all do better to practice empathy, understanding, and trust in those around us; that’s the only way we can collectively see through what’s real, and what’s interest-driven spectacle.”
