Metalcore band Currents are back with a new song and accompanying music video, “The Death We Seek.” Today’s release marks the band’s return to the spotlight and their first new music since 2020’s The Way It Ends.
Vocalist Brian Wille said the inspiration for “The Death We Seek” stems from the different paths we all take in life and the result of our choices.
“‘The Death We Seek’ is about the weight of our choices and our responsibility for their outcomes. The video follows two individuals attempting to stop a looming apocalypse, only to be sabotaged by forces beyond their control or understanding. This song was written shortly after the completion and release of The Way It Ends, and felt like the perfect way to build on and continue the story behind the music and reintroduce ourselves to the world.”
If you’re already familiar with Currents, then you already know the kind of emotive, yet crushing music to expect in “The Death We Seek.”
You can check out the music video below.
In addition to the new track, Currents will be hitting the road tomorrow in support of Miss May I, along with other supporting acts Kingdom Of Giants and LANDMVRKS.
