    Converge

    I know other than Clavius (if he's back on the new shiny ETS) and a few others besides myself are the only Converge fans in here, but for the few, and in case anyone hears anything before I do (rare...I talk to Jake often and nerd out over this band, but still)...I thought I'd start a thread.

    Start with the news that a new album is dropping next year, and in about a week I'll be at this rager. What a serious lineup.

    Their live shows are intense, but I find their albums somewhat boring.

    Any album in particular or just in general?

    Also, the official eStore put up a ton of new shirts about a week ago, mostly of vintage designs, Petitioning The Empty Sky, etc. Good stuff, but I had to hold out when Jake told me that the Seattle show next Friday is going to have exclusive one-off stuff for sale.

    Totally forgot to post after the Seattle show a few days ago. Anways, 6 bands makes for a long ass show. Heiress was great, Black Breath ALWAYS kills it (go download their album 'Heavy Breathing' right now) and Converge KILLED it. Got to hang out with Nate and Jake for about half an hour before the show and talk the new album, which they're 'knee deep in'...expect to hear something about it very soon apparently. Shirts were only for the show, $10 and prints for $15. Print wasn't by Jake, just a local artist...white skull in blurry light grey with bands, date, city at the bottom. Still worth it.

    Setlist opened with Concubine, and if you know how fucking small El Corazon is (....it's fucking hella small) you'd know how much the floor opened up and the stage diving was rockin'...every 10 seconds someone was flyin', crowdwalkin'...it was insane. Dark Horse killed it. John Pettibone came back out for 'Cutter' which was a highlight for me. They ended with Last Light of course which everyone loved. Good night. Next tour summer/fall 2012 if all goes according to plan.

    they are everything right about aggressive music. only way this band could be better is if Jake's barking was more intelligible.

    "All We Love We Leave Behind" - 2012 via Epitaph/Deathwish

    Suddenly the shirt I bought at the Seattle show that has that on the back makes sense.

    Converge have an exclusive shirt design that will give 100% of proceeds to battling breast cancer. Details here



    Pretty sick design, and with shipping mine came to $21 so not that bad and for a great cause.

    My Shirts For A Cure shirt came in! Pretty sick. Also, someone is shooting a mini documentary on Jacob's printing process and artwork. The first picture of shooting nearly made me shit myself.

    Converge fan here, and proud of it. I've seen them twice and have the You Fail Me poster on my wall. Don't listen to them often anymore, only because I devoured their discography over and over. I'm patiently waiting the new material, as I'm a fan of different parts of all their stuff.

    And that pug drumming to "Axe To Fall" is incredible.

    Jacob's new 4 print series 'Faith' just dropped, it's nice but I'm going to hold out for the individually embellished Jane Doe prints he's releasing soon. Also, on Kurt's Facebook page there's a clip of like 5 seconds of some new stuff...with uhh, a friendly dog in the video. Lastly:

    Live performance of track from new album 'Empty On The Inside'.

    Sounds a bit slower and sludgier. I dig. A lot.

    Fucking ace.

    I got Jane Doe on vinyl the other week, pretty much just to have that art work on a bigger scale. Beautiful.

    All I know is that this is the song they played in Seattle when my rib got dislocated. They usually open with it but are now ending shows with it.
