FUSE TV - Meet Against the Current: From YouTube to Your Next Obsession

Unfamiliar with Against the Current? That's about to change. The pop-rock trio have been making music together for a few years now, quickly finding Internet fame through YouTube (the video for their latest single, "Paralyzed," has over seven million views...and was posted less than two weeks ago) with both covers and original material—but don't call them YouTube celebs. Fast forward to the present and the band are gearing up for a debut full-length out on pop-punk staple label Fueled By Ramen (ParamoreFall Out BoyPanic! At the Disco) due out in early 2016, with promise of a pre-order at the end of the year, an overseas tour in August followed by U.S. dates in the fall.

We sat down with vocalist Chrissy Costanza, drummer Will Ferri and guitarist Dan Gow at New York City's Webster Hall to talk Internet, idenity and their hometown of Poughkeepsie, NY.
