Seriously. Some bands issue updates — Converge issue extensive, quarterly reports. Today’s most recent update includes tour dates the band will soon be playing with Trap Them and Burning Love. After the jump, you can peep them all.
The band will be releasing a split 7-inch EP “with our friends in the legendary Drop Dead. The split 7-inch EP will be self-released by both bands, and distributed to retailers/distros by Deathwish Direct and Armageddon. If all goes well, look for the release to be available at the U.S. shows” that follow at the end of this post.
They also spent much of the winter on their next album. “The album will be released by Epitaph/Deathwish sometime down the road (that means no date is ready to announce yet),” the band says, but demos have been recording and the writing sessions bore lots of fruit.
There will also be a new Converge DVD sometime soon. It is now being edited. “If the Hard Drive Gods smile on us, we hope to get through this process soon and have it released this year. Also Deathwish will be repressing our Unloved And Weeded Out collection as a 12-inch LP soon. The vinyl versions of Axe To Fall, No Heroes, You Fail Me, and Jane Doe are available now on Deathwish.”
