Two of Converge's essential early releases, Petitioning The Empty Sky and When Forever Comes Crashing, are being re-issued again together in the Petitioning Forever double LP package, this time on transparent red vinyl. You can pre-order it over at Deathwish or Kings Road Merch.
"Pound For Pound: The Wolverine Blues Sessions" Digital EP from Converge features our rendition of "Wolverine Blues" originally written and performed by Entombed, presented as five different tracks.
Each vocalist recorded a full version of the song which we used to compile into the final version included on the Converge and Napalm Death Split 7"EP. This Digital EP is the complete mixes of each guest vocalist who contributed to the final track, presented as five unique versions of the song.
What a hell of a first day at this year's Fun Fun Fun Fest. You can check out a couple of photos from the day over on our Facebook page. Head to the replies to see not only my review, but Dustin Harkins review of the festival as well, who will be down here with me all weekend. Refused, Braid, David Cross and much much more today. I'd bring a bandana if you're hanging out towards the Black Stage today. More than enough dirt and dust is getting stirred up down there.
Converge were in a van wreck last night after hitting some black ice in Oregon. Thankfully, everyone is okay and the band was able to get back on the road. Just a reminder to all our favorite bands - please be safe out there!
According to a recent studio report featured in the February 2012 issue of "Decibel"; Converge are planning to title their forthcoming album All We Love We Leave Behind. They are planning on a early summer release on Epitaph Records.
