Half way through 2015 and it’s only getting better because another rock band is set to make its way back to Malaysia.

For starters, we have South Korean band CNBLUE heading our way next month for a meet and greet session. Just a day after the event, Us the Duo will make their Malaysian debut at the Bently Music Auditorium and in September, legendary rock band Bon Jovi will be coming back to Malaysia to perform at Stadium Merdeka after 20 whole years.

And now, to add on to the fun, Against The Current will reach out to their Malaysia fans again via their “Gravity” world tour!


Against The Current - Malaysia

Against The Current is a female-fronted pop rock band that rose to international fame through their hit cover videos, such as Paramore’s “Ain’t it Fun” and Taylor Swift’s “Red”. Originating from New York, the band is made up of lead vocalist Chrissy Costanza, drummer Will Ferri, and vocalist/guitarist Dan Gow. They began posting cover videos on YouTube in 2011 and took their music up a notch through powerful collaborations with other YouTube musicians including Alex Goot and Kurt Schneider.

The band gained momentum by releasing their original tracks on their official YouTube channel, which currently boasts more than 1 million subscribers. Without the support of a major label, they independently released 2 EPs and dozens of singles. They’ve also toured around the globe and made their Malaysian debut at Bentley Music Auditorium in August 2014. By March 2015, the band proudly announced that they’ve inked a deal with Fueled By Ramen/Atlantic Record.

Before making their major label debut in winter 2016, they will embark on a headlining world tour summer 2015 in support of their recently released EP titled “Gravity”  with stops in Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America. And to our surprise, they will be making a stop in Malaysia too!
