Converge titles new album

Thursday, June 29, 2006 9:03 PM PT


Converge has officially titled their upcoming album "No Heroes." Here's an explanation from the band:

"These days cowards outnumber the heroes, and the begging souls outweigh the calloused hands of the hardest of workers. Both in life and in art, the lack of passion is sickening and the lust for complacency is poisonous. This album is the artistic antithesis of that sinking world, a thorn in the side of their beast. It's for those who move mountains, one day at a time. It's for those who truly understand sacrifice...In our world of enemies, we will walk alone..."

The band will play material from the new effort during their July stint on the Sounds Of The Underground tour.

6/29/2006 9:08:49 PM
still one of my favorite bands. i do care.

6/29/2006 9:11:17 PM
Woah Jacob....slow down a sec, just the title is good enough, no poetic babblings are needed.

6/29/2006 9:12:37 PM
This band is important. This band means something. I care.

6/29/2006 9:12:59 PM
sounds like a Mel Gibson film.

6/29/2006 9:13:37 PM

6/29/2006 9:15:16 PM
fckING GAY!!!!!!!!

6/29/2006 9:20:29 PM
i like converge too, most of their stuff. but that whole tirade, followed up nicely by 'during their stint on the Sounds of The Underground tour'... kind of dulls the effect?

6/29/2006 9:25:10 PM
fcking deep.

6/29/2006 9:27:28 PM
i like it. i like them.

6/29/2006 9:30:20 PM
they are still better than pretty much any existing hardcore band

6/29/2006 9:33:28 PM
cool deal bros

6/29/2006 9:36:05 PM
converge press release for follow-up to 'no heroes' is as follows: "yeah we put pretty much no thought into this and are doing it in the least artsy way possible. could i go ahead and get a favor with my cognac?"

6/29/2006 9:41:13 PM
great news...I want it now

6/29/2006 9:43:46 PM
***cares***

6/29/2006 9:45:31 PM
i want to do the back and forth. forever.

6/29/2006 9:45:39 PM
Converge washes their clothes... okay, so what?

6/29/2006 9:46:29 PM
cool........

6/29/2006 9:54:11 PM
great

By: enemy2casualty on 6/29/2006 9:55:10 PM "we feel that we need to raise the pretension level on this album, while downgrading the level of thoughtful musicianship, and instead build it up with epic, poetic meandering"

6/29/2006 10:12:16 PM
blah blah blah

6/29/2006 10:14:46 PM
he is right, you guys are all pussies

6/29/2006 10:15:43 PM
converge is still the best band in hardcore

6/29/2006 10:32:56 PM
These days cowards outnumber the heroes, and the begging souls outweigh the calloused hands of the hardest of moshers.

6/29/2006 10:57:13 PM
even if you think it was too wordy, it's undeniable that they're right. one of the best bands ever.

6/29/2006 11:00:18 PM
*respects heavily

6/29/2006 11:00:35 PM
amazing. it will be glorious.

6/29/2006 11:04:41 PM
interesting reading that, all coming from a band whos last album was easily their most mediocre and unimportant

6/29/2006 11:09:32 PM
fck this band.

6/29/2006 11:10:09 PM
Yesssssssssssssssss..................................... :D

6/29/2006 11:14:06 PM
their recording budget is better than yours. they do what they like. you're just jealous.

6/29/2006 11:14:09 PM
*makes 3000$ a night* - converge

6/29/2006 11:31:39 PM
My love for this band is battling mightily with my urge to punch Jake Bannon in the fcking face for his self-importance.

6/29/2006 11:36:51 PM
to the gay at the way top. I CARE. epic fcking band.

6/29/2006 11:42:11 PM
this will be the shit

6/29/2006 11:43:50 PM
"blah blah blah. we fcking suck yet some gay douchebags will love our latest piece of shit. oh, and here's some nonsense rhetoric for you gays to chew on too. enjoy sheep."

6/30/2006 12:03:49 AM
You fcks all know you like them, it doesn't make you cool to pretend you don't

6/30/2006 12:13:07 AM
^^^^^ And yeah, Jake thinks he's somebody, I don't care, they're still better than 80% of the bands that have existed at any time during their existance. And You Fail Me was hardly their weakest effort, listen again, moron.

you fail me was a perfect name for that album. and being a long time fan i am not to psyched on this. there shows are rittles with bullshit people. metal heads, tough guys emo kids, and no true harcore kids anymore. and theyre playing into it.

6/30/2006 12:48:26 AM
cool beans!

6/30/2006 1:09:09 AM
Will obviously be getting this.

6/30/2006 1:17:59 AM
im am soooooooo fcking stoked. favorite band. ever.

6/30/2006 1:25:49 AM
amazing band. I love how people think it's cool to hate them now just cause they're doing a few dates on sotu. They haven't started throwing in catchy atreyu-like choruses yet, so stop being gay homosexuals.

6/30/2006 1:40:54 AM
I'm sure this album will destroy, favorite band of all time.

6/30/2006 1:52:53 AM

6/30/2006 1:53:06 AM
jacob bannon > 99% people at the english language

6/30/2006 7:52:31 AM
"Jacob Bannon Has A Smooth Bowel Movement" - why did an album title make the news?

6/30/2006 9:09:22 AM
I haev respect

6/30/2006 9:13:40 AM
I never knew converge was a hardcore band. But nonetheless, still one of my favorite bands.

6/30/2006 9:58:01 AM
All of you h8rz shut up. Jane Doe helped me through some hard times. LOL

6/30/2006 10:31:00 AM

6/30/2006 1:53:54 PM
"why did an album title make the news? " good point, no one cares, thats why there are over 3000 views and over 50 comments. youre dumb shut up.

6/30/2006 1:56:59 PM
this will most definitely rule.

6/30/2006 2:27:35 PM
Damn, I thought for sure they were going with the tittle I suggested - WE SUCK & YOU ARE GAY FOR BUYING THIS ALBUM!

6/30/2006 2:30:35 PM
SeveredLnTwo 6/30/2006 12:03:49 AM You fcks all know you like them, it doesn't make you cool to pretend you don't

6/30/2006 2:47:38 PM
they rule. you know it. you were like 6 when they were busting their asses already so dont act like you know about them "selling out" or some bullshit. fck the haters.

6/30/2006 3:41:46 PM

I'm extremely stoked for this one, I know it will be grand. fck the haters...

6/30/2006 7:04:02 PM
so, this record is about all of the people who are going to the "sounds of the underground" tour. ironic.

6/30/2006 7:29:53 PM
Jake owns all.

6/30/2006 10:27:03 PM
if you dont like Converge you need to get the fck off the board

7/1/2006 12:23:24 AM
Something tells me they've been reading some Ayn Rand.

7/1/2006 1:29:43 AM
Simons post made me lol

7/1/2006 2:29:26 PM
dieing to hear this album!

7/1/2006 4:32:59 PM
If you don't like anything they stand for or are doing now, you never fcking did. You expect them to stop playing because hardcore scenester fake-os start showing up? fck off. You have NO idea what playing music is about.

7/1/2006 4:55:51 PM
this could very possibly be the first converge album to not be about a chick.

7/1/2006 5:32:41 PM
would rather eat shit served and garnished with parsley than ever support such a fcking crap group!!!!!!

7/1/2006 6:03:16 PM
PIG_DESTROYER said: "interesting reading that, all coming from a band whos last album was easily their most mediocre and unimportant" You're a fcking idiot

7/2/2006 3:03:44 PM
You all must care if you spend the energy talking shit about the band that was your favorite three years ago. I will always support Converge.

7/2/2006 8:12:14 PM
what a fckin negative statement. theres tons of heroes, converge just doesnt feel like making happy sounding music. this band is the epitome of sterotypical

7/3/2006 9:10:55 AM
Who the fck is Converge? do they sound like Drowning Pool? Cuz Drowning Pool is amazing. One time the singer signed my dick. But really, Converge is the shit... people who hate converge like Journey and Maroon 5.

7/5/2006 1:14:35 AM
"his band is the epitome of sterotypical"...clearly you are retarded if you can't see that converge has laid the groundwork for so many bands, and are far from stereotypical. sure, Jake is kinda lame, but converge is not. you fail

7/5/2006 2:09:06 PM
you fail me left a bad taste in my mouth, they have alot to prove with this album, they suck live too
