CONVERGE TO RELEASE FIRST ALBUM IN 5 YEARS ‘THE DUSK IN US’ OUT NOVEMBER 3 LISTEN TO A NEW TRACK “UNDER DURESS”
Converge have announced that they will be releasing a brand new album titled "The Dusk In Us", which is the first album in five years from the Boston-based heavy-music innovators. Due out on November 3, The Dusk In Us will be released via Epitaph and Deathwish. Pre-orders are available at http://kr-m.co/converge.
As the ninth full-length from Converge (vocalist Jacob Bannon, guitarist Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton, and drummer Ben Koller), The Dusk In Us follows 2012’s acclaimed All We Love We Leave Behind. Featured on Pitchfork’s Best New Music list, All We Love We Leave Behind was called “as skull-cleaving as it is beautiful” by Consequence Of Sound.
Converge has also released a new single, “Under Duress.” Delivering what Bannon describes as “my emotional reaction to the complex world in which we live,” the track merges his tortured howl with pounding rhythms and abrasive guitar riffs.
Produced by Converge and mixed by Ballou at his renowned Godcity Studios, The Dusk In Us shows the band’s artistic evolution and avant-garde sensibilities while still capturing their classic sound. After forming in Massachusetts in 1990, Converge made their debut with 1994’s Halo in a Haystack. Quickly regarded as pioneers within the aggressive music arena, the band had a major breakthrough with their landmark album Jane Doe—a 2001 release praised as “iconic” by the A.V. Club.
