Converge set to record new album

Saturday, April 8, 2017 11:52 AM PT / 15,923 views
Four months ago we learned that Massachusetts punk/metal/noise veterans Converge would enter the studio in the spring to begin recording a new record. Well, it looks like tracking is imminent as earlier today drummer Ben Koller stated via Instagram (see below) that following today's show with his band All Pigs Must Die, he would be returning home to "start tracking the new Converge album." Further details have yet to be disclosed, however, it's all but certain that the new record will be produced and engineered by guitarist Kurt Ballou at his GodCity Studio in Salem, MA.

REAL RECOGNIZE REAL. In 1995 I drove from new york city to douglasville nonstop, except for gas, in my mustang gt, blasting Billy idol, to see converge, drove back nonstop, took a shower and went to work all day, 10 hours, went home, made love, then, and only then, slept like a baby for about 16 hours. What I'd give to be 25 again, lol.

My cousin (Massachusetts native) has been to some of these guys rehearsals. They suck all the air out of the practice room and fill the void with a psychoactive fog. Then they make the guitars sound like giant earth movers digging mass graves. Trust me.

I don't know how if I back this as I only listen to predictable, overdone deathcore while wearing gravemarker mesh shorts. Even though the complexity of most converge albums is high, for my feeble moshing brain I have a hard time keeping up. Siq rips and something a deathcore kid would say etc etc NU X HATE CORE NEWB. Deathcore Jon np: Blackbelt - Blackbelt

^ you tried

anonymous 4/8/2017 10:33:31 PM

Hello yes it me again Srj tmkn-sod fame. Fck you "Deathcore" Jon lmao xD

anonymous 4/8/2017 11:55:09 PM

anonymous 4/9/2017 6:04:06 AM

losers with handlebar moustaches that sip soy lattes are gay for this

anonymous 4/9/2017 10:40:06 AM

How funny that Stone Cold is in a band called Today is the Day, I knew guy was lit but that's 100 fam

anonymous 4/9/2017 11:33:03 AM

Another great album that'll be ruined by vocals akin to a baby seal being beaten to deal.

anonymous 4/9/2017 11:56:17 AM

Good band. Can't wait.

anonymous 4/9/2017 3:02:59 PM

^ You an internet shill for them or something? Probably...

anonymous 4/9/2017 3:03:06 PM

Opened a show for these dudes in okc in 2014. Close to 110 watched my band, only 12 people stayed there for them including a goth chick and a skinny dude in a fedora trying to start a pit with some old guy who said his wife was pissed he ditches his kids to mosh every night.

anonymous 4/9/2017 6:20:55 PM

"""^ you tried"""" DC jon sup bro...got your mesh shorts right here dude.

anonymous 4/9/2017 8:09:26 PM

This band will do exactly what they've always done........ get worse. They continue to go down the ol' artsy fartsy, vegan ham and dairy free cream cheese, croissant eating, Hot Water Music tattoo having, bike riding, no deodorant wearing, striped V neck girl shirt wearing, messenger bag with all the oldest and most legit crust punk patch having path I've ever known any band to do it. They used to rule and then they obviously became cynical but couldn't deny the money they were making.

anonymous 4/9/2017 8:33:18 PM

I read all the comments and the only thing that stood out to me was MASS GRAVES.

anonymous 4/9/2017 8:35:14 PM

saw them open for piebald

anonymous 4/9/2017 10:19:55 PM

Botch wishes they ended up as this band and not Minus the Bear and Friends

spaceghhost 4/10/2017 8:58:23 AM

Converge are fcking awesome

anonymous 4/10/2017 9:11:42 AM

Band sucks. People only pretend to like them. They're unlistenable.

anonymous 4/10/2017 10:34:44 AM

^ spot on, nothing but terrible noise

anonymous 4/10/2017 10:40:14 AM

Truly amazing band, they play hardcore better than any metal band and play metal better than any hardcore band. You can't ask more than that.

anonymous 4/11/2017 1:34:33 PM

dumbass og merch swap page kids and grown men who still think they are kids are stoked

anonymous 4/11/2017 9:58:26 PM

Converge: Fake hardcore since 1991.
