Jake Bannon and Dwid start new band

Tuesday, December 4, 2007 9:11 PM PT


Converge frontman Jake Bannon, Integrity's Dwid, and artist Stephen Kasner have joined forces to form a new group called Irons. Described as "a collective effort to create apocalyptic, non-linear music from a primal fine art based mindset," Irons is currently writing and recording material for a Deathwish Inc. release, which will hit streets next year. Additional information can be found here.

i don't think this could possibly be any gayer...what a fcking gimmick

12/4/2007 9:50:47 PM
sounds a little lame. hope it isn't.

12/4/2007 9:55:32 PM
if this band was the same musically but without the names they would never be signed. especially not to deathwish.

12/4/2007 10:01:18 PM
ramallah

12/4/2007 10:01:50 PM
do you gays even listen to music or do you just get on lambgoat and hate on every band for the sake of getting a rep? eat a fat dick.

12/4/2007 10:07:07 PM
for all you know-it-all shit talkers, you 'no care' blah blah bullshit... id love to know what kind of stupid trash you listen to, point is you still come to this site so you must like some of the music. fckin fck head wannabe elitist fck offs.

12/4/2007 10:14:49 PM
not sure which post is gayer, the actual news article itself or iron_tacos reply. still debating with a team of judges

12/4/2007 10:24:28 PM
sounds like it has the potential to be really good. pretty homoerotic description of it, though.

12/4/2007 10:30:34 PM
"a collective effort to create apocalyptic, non-linear music from a primal fine art based mindset" aka converge 2

12/4/2007 10:35:15 PM

You know,Im sure a majority of the kids on here dont even remember Integrity,much less know who they are.But Im sure they all bought "Heroes" and "You Fail Me"

12/4/2007 11:42:00 PM
I remember Integrity pretty well and STILL don't give a shit about this. No click ever.

12/4/2007 11:52:52 PM

12/5/2007 12:41:55 AM
There are now officially more bands with pluralized singular names than not.

12/5/2007 12:55:44 AM
fine art based mindset. what the fck is this supposed to mean?

12/5/2007 1:00:40 AM
this is probably going to be the greatest thing of 2008 you douches don`t know shit

12/5/2007 1:50:04 AM

12/5/2007 1:52:21 AM

12/5/2007 2:11:11 AM
"non-linear music"... does this mean they're gonna start off by doing windmills?

12/5/2007 2:14:42 AM
LOL @ the kids on here making fun of something that will probably be pretty cool when 99% of you have never written a song in your lives.

12/5/2007 2:16:02 AM
*humps this thread and drops a load* - 90% of LG

12/5/2007 2:39:31 AM
fck, this is gonna be amazing! im sure most (if not all) you poeple siad this is gonna be "lame" just listen to youth crew and are like 15/16 years old. but hey i could be wrong.

12/5/2007 3:35:22 AM
Jake Bannon and Dwid are trying to be cutting edge, why can't you all apreciate that?

12/5/2007 3:41:42 AM
i like converge but i'm willing to bet money that jake bannon wrote that disgustingly pretentious description

12/5/2007 4:04:22 AM
Still cant get into the last converge record. A bit too artsy/abstract for me. I have a feeling this will be similar :(

12/5/2007 4:13:44 AM
Dwid is a crazy motherfcker.

12/5/2007 4:16:04 AM
converge = real music gayS!!!

12/5/2007 6:00:31 AM
anything involving dwid is bound to be fcking epic

12/5/2007 7:36:46 AM
oh right...cos this isnt going to be the most pretentious sounding wank since fcking mogwai...fck arty wanky music!

12/5/2007 7:39:34 AM
Err, how can music be non-linear? It starts, then it ends. That's what it does.

12/5/2007 7:57:14 AM
who's gonna play what though? Looking forward to songs about Self-Loathing/Armenians/World is Shit etc etc etc.

12/5/2007 9:29:21 AM

12/5/2007 10:04:38 AM

12/5/2007 12:31:26 PM
so stoked!!!

12/5/2007 12:47:44 PM
this is some seriously gayy shit right here. what the fck is "non-linear" music? music is arranged sound, arrangement implies linearity.

12/5/2007 12:49:50 PM
great, more neur-isis

12/5/2007 1:03:53 PM
if you're alone does that mean no one likes you???

12/5/2007 1:39:44 PM
vcreationv 12/5/2007 2:14:42 AM LOL @ the kids on here making fun of something that will probably be pretty cool when 99% of you have never written a song in your lives. or better yet, even picked up an instrument.

12/5/2007 2:08:20 PM
"a collective effort to create apocalyptic, non-linear music from a primal fine art based mindset".......so basically converge jr. with same frontman/different members.

12/5/2007 3:17:05 PM
Can anyone spell pretentious?

12/5/2007 3:18:12 PM
christ save us from the destruction of music as we know it....

12/5/2007 4:07:02 PM
haters are gay, listen to it before knocking it. supermachiner was cool.

12/5/2007 4:11:55 PM
so.. a collective effort to create a "disclosed", "dynamical" music from a "first importance" fine art based "disposition". - i think these adjectives should've been used instead to make it sound less "Psywarfare"...

12/5/2007 4:39:43 PM
I'm not surprised everyone thinks this will suck. But I have faith in these guys. Should be pretty cool.

12/5/2007 5:27:35 PM
"A collective effort to create apocalyptic, non-linear music from a primal fine art-based mindset" It's music, not rocket science. This band is a joke.

12/5/2007 10:53:56 PM
dwid + kurt ballououuo would be better

12/5/2007 11:34:27 PM
