CURRENTS (USA) & ABOVE, BELOW
America's Silent Planet will finally be making their long awaited return back down under this October for their debut national headline tour and they'll be bringing along their fellow US mates in Currents & Sydney's own Above, Below.
Weaving together topics ranging from historical injustice to the existential despair of modern life, Silent Planet have a message that burns with a hardcore indignation, while coupled with progressive instrumentation. After forming in 2009, the band began gaining prominence for their vast array of intellectual influences, anchored by frontman and lyricist Garrett Russell’s masters degree in psychology and field experience as a mental health therapist. However, it is their remarkably intimate connection with their listeners that has become their trademark in the music scene. Perhaps no single event better speaks to their grassroots base than their surprise, underdog victory in the Underground Band of the Year category at the 2017 APMA awards.
Currents is the new standard for death-infused metalcore. This is emotionally fraught and impossibly angry music soaked in cold, depressive atmosphere. Currents explore the forbidden realms of a tortured psyche, searching for meaning amidst uncertain chaos and venom. Heartache, physical abuse, abandonment, trauma – no dark emotion is spared examination. Currents also turn their gaze outward, offering no mercy to man-made catastrophes like climate change and animal abuse. The Way It Ends , the second full-length from the Connecticut bruisers, is a thematic and spiritual successor to their dense, bludgeoning, and smartly constructed full-length debut. As New Noise declared: “CURRENTS" is a band not to be ignored.”
If you are a fan of metalcore, then this is one tour you won't want to miss when it hits your city this October.
