Message from the BandThanks to everyone who came out to see Converge on our recent U.S. Tour.

Unfortunately on our day drive from St. Louis to Austin, one of our members had a serious health scare. We rushed him to the nearest ER were he was looked at by some fine Oklahoma doctors. After a night's stay in the hospital and a battery of tests we were able to have him discharged earlier today. We are now racing (quite literally) to make it to our show at Chaos In Tejas, albeit extremely late, to play an abbreviated set. Wish us luck...

Because of this health issue, we are canceling the remaining few shows of this current U.S. tour so he can get home and get some medical attention asap. To those in Little Rock, Nashville, and Raleigh, we will add you to our list of places for make up shows later down the road.

Thanks to all of you for your continued support, it is appreciated by all of us.

Really hope it wasn't anything too serious. I'm not ready for Converge minus one.

this sucks, it also sucks that there are virtually no comments since it's not some douche from man overboard or something

Haha. Why is that band big? Converge are legends. They've been around for literally 21 years.

agreed, every single album is a masterpiece. a full body of work inside and out. been doing their own thing and doing it big for two decades. maybe the most legit band ever and certainly one of my all-time favorites

Wish whichever member it is best wishes and a speedy recovery. One of the few rare bands in heavy music with an honest vision and integrity.
