Converge begins work on next album

Tuesday, November 02, 2010 9:04 AM PT


Converge has announced plans to begin writing their next album this week. As usual, most of the album will be written and ultimately recorded at guitarist Kurt Ballou's own studio, Godcity, in Salem, Massachusetts.

No production schedule has been disclosed, though Converge has released each of their last four albums in either September or October; we expect this one to surface in fall of 2011.

if their last ep is any indication, they still have plenty of good ideas left. would be nice if they got onto a 2 year album cycle instead of this 3+ years bullshit

11/2/2010 11:45:25 AM
I doubt this album will be "ultimately recorded".

11/2/2010 11:56:49 AM
Way too much hype. J. Bannon's vocals are annoying.

11/2/2010 12:05:46 PM
I hope its better than the last one! I hope its more like "No Heroes".

Godcity is packed to the gills with vegan deli trays

11/2/2010 10:45:42 PM
I wonder if they've decided yet whether they will write only one really good song for this album and release it months in advance, effectively killing all excitement for the album when it finally drops.
