Against the Current announce new tour dates for 2019, drop video for ‘The Fuss’

Against the Current spent most of the year on the road, touring nonstop behind their at-the-time new album. Now, it looks like the trio’s 2019 is going to look a lot like 2018 with a slew of tour dates in their future. On Monday (Dec. 10), the New York-founded band announced plans to embark on a short North American tour in the springtime.

The upcoming trek will find the trio performing at venues across the continent throughout the months of March and April.

Dubbed the Past Lives tour —after their recently released record— the excursion will include stops in Austin, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, and New York. The 22-stop jaunt will begin on March 22 at the Masquerade in Atlanta and conclude a month later on April 20 at the U Street Music Hall in Washington D.C.

Supporting acts for the forthcoming excursion have yet to be announced. Tickets for the upcoming tour will go on sale beginning this Friday, Dec. 14.

The impending trek will be in support of the band’s recently released record, Past Lives. The album, the group’s sophomore studio effort, was released in September through Fueled By Ramen.

In conjunction with the 2019 North American Past Lives tour announcement, the group has released the music video for their latest single, “The Fuss.” Watch the almost-three-minute clip above.

Watch: Dashboard Confessional prepare for an apocalypse in ‘Just What to Say’

Dashboard Confessional are back with a brand new music video. On Thursday (Nov. 15), the Florida-founded band unleashed the three-and-half-minute clip for their latest single, “Just What to Say.”

The Ryan Hamblin-directed video begins with frontman Chris Carrabba sitting on a bed in what appears to be his bedroom as he strums away at his guitar. Visually getting frustrated by his lack of inspiration, the singer leaves the room and heads to what looks to be the kitchen area. Taking a seat, he places the guitar on the ground and puts on his record player.

After putting the needle to the record, he rises from the chair and heads over to a table where liquid-filled glasses and crumbled pieces of paper litter the top. He spends the rest of the clip walking from room to room, at several points even grabbing the receiver of a telephone as if he was working up the courage to make a very important phone call.

As he turns to face the window, he notices how the sky had changed to a deep red. The television behind him flashes several warnings, declaring that it’s “the end of the world.” In a panic that the word is in fact ending, he decides to make the call, realizing he knows ‘just what to say.’

Watch the music video for “Just What to Say” above.

“Just What to Say” (featuring Against the Current’s Chrissy Costanza) is the closing track on Dashboard Confessional recently released record, Crooked Shadows. The album, the group’s seventh studio effort, was released in February through Fueled By Ramen. The album also includes lead singles “Heart Beat Here” and “We Fight.”

Against the Current announce ‘Past Lives,’ drop video for ‘Almost Forgot’

Months after dropping two new songs, Against the Current have finally announced the release of their brand new album. On Friday (Aug. 17), the New York-founded trio confirmed the title and release date for their  upcoming sophomore record. Titled Past Lives, the new record is due out Sept. 28 through Fueled By Ramen. Pre-orders for Past Lives are currently available on Against the Current’s website.

Past Lives will be the much-anticipated follow-up to the trio’s breakout debut, 2016’s In Our Bones.

In addition to unveiling the record’s title and release date, the group also unleashed its third single; a track titled “Personal.” Stream the new song here. As if the new album information and the new single wasn’t enough, the band also premiered the music video for their previously released song, “Almost Forgot.” Watch the new music video above.

Earlier in the year, Against the Current surprised fans by releasing not one, but two new songs: lead single “Strangers Again” and “Almost Forgot.” The springtime release of both tracks marked the trio’s first new material in more than two years. At the time of the two songs’ debut, the band had not confirmed or denied speculations over whether the new songs would be featured on their sophomore album.

As evident in their recent announcement, it looks like fans finally got their long-awaited confirmation.

In support of the record’s fall time release, the group will embark on a massive world tour which will find them performing at venues in Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Ireland, the United Kingdom, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, and France. The three-piece’s 2018 European tour will begin on Sept. 15 at the Academy in Dublin and conclude a couple of weeks later on Oct. 11 at the Yoyo in Paris. The complete tour itinerary can be found here.

Watch Patrick Stump become a power-hungry director in ‘Bishops Knife Trick’

It’s been months since anyone has really heard anything from Fall Out Boy. Between the new album, touring, and their privates lives, it’s safe to assume thing shave been crazy. Well, there’s no need to worry any longer because the quartet have returned.

On Tuesday (July 24), the Chicago-founded band unleashed the music video for their latest single, “Bishops Knife Trick.” Unlike many of their previous music videos, this one only features frontman Patrick Stump, a band of llamas, and some crew members. The five-minute clip features Stump playing the role of a power-hungry, rude, micromanaging music video director who is not impressed by the band.

If the premise of the clip sounds and looks oddly familiar, then you would be on to something; it’s a clear ode to their music video for 2007’s “Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.”

About four minutes into the clip, two of the llamas get into a massive fight and are swiftly kicked off the soundstage. Instead of calling it a day, Stump goes over to the piano and finishes the song (and then struggles to turn off the camera). For fans of the band, it’s funny to watch Stump, one of the nicest people you could possibly meet, screaming and losing his head over this llama band not listening to him.

Watch the music video for “Bishops Knife Trick” above.

“Bishops Knife Trick” is featured on Fall Out boy’s recently released record, MANIA. MANIA was released in January and swiftly earned the number one spot on the Billboard 200 chart. Though the reviews were mostly mixed, MANIA went on to become Fall Out Boy’s fourth number one album.

In support of the album, Fall Out Boy previously announced plans to hit the road for a massive fall time tour. Against the Current, Every Time I Die, Gym Class Heroes, nothing,nowhere, L.I.F.T., and State Champs will all open for the four-piece during select days of the tour.

Listen: Against the Current drop new set of songs

It’s new music Friday, so that means a lot of artists are getting their fans pumped for the weekend by releasing new music. One of those acts treating fans to new tunes are New York-founded trio, Against the Current. Instead of releasing just one new song, the band decided to treat fans to a double dose of new tunes.

The first track is titled “Almost Forgot” and can be streamed above while the second new song is titled “Strangers Again” which can be streamed here. Though no official confirmation has been given, fans are speculating that the new songs will be featured on the band’s upcoming sophomore album.

Prior to the major reveal, the group had been teasing fans about something big happening at midnight. First, they posted a message on Twitter that simply read “…in with the new. Midnight.”

Shortly after, each member of the band posted a photograph of themselves lit up by icy blue lights on their personal Twitter accounts. Accompanying each of the photos was a short caption making reference to something happening at midnight.

As if that wasn’t enough, a few hours after the individual posts, the band’s Twitter was updated with a new post reading “new day. new sounds.”

While fans wait around for Against the Current to confirm their sophomore album’s release, the group will head out on the road once again this fall. The three-piece will embark on their 2018 European tour beginning Sept. 15 at the Academy in Dublin. The trek will conclude a couple of weeks later on Oct. 11 at the Yoyo in Paris.

Prior to making the trek across the pond, Against the Current will once join forces with Fall Out Boy for their MANIA North American tour. Instead of opening for the band during their North American stops like they did in Europe, Against the Current will only play three shows with Fall Out Boy (Aug. 29 – Uniondale, NY – Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum; Aug. 31 – Uncasville, CT – Mohegan Sun Arena; and Sept. 01 – Hershey, PA – Hershey Park Stadium).
