When Against The Current arrived in the UK on their Gravity World Tour, I got in contact with my friend Joe Brady who had been working with the band. We chatted about the tour and he mentioned that there was the possibility of them shooting a live video in London. He asked if I would be interested in being one of the camera operators to help promote the band’s up-and-coming release ‘Outsiders’. I was definitely interested and extremely excited about the possibility of being involved as I had started listening to ATC sometime ago and had them pinned for big things. Chrissy Costanza already being a star in her own right I knew that there was going to be a lot of hype around the band. However it wasn’t till after speaking to Joe and seeing his photos of his journey with the band I realised just how huge they were across the globe not just in the US. This is a band that has yet to release their debut album and are already doing a headline World Tour which they are selling out… crazy!
So as the London date was approaching it was confirmed that we would be doing the video. We met up on the tour bus (which was awesome!) to talk through the plan for the shoot and prepared ourselves for the show as the fans entered the O2 Academy in Islington. The band hit the stage to loud cheers and filming commenced. After plenty of CO2 and Confetti action the show was over and in the can. Here is ‘Outsider’ live for you to relive or view for the first time:
