Converge Drops A News Hammer

Converge announced some awesome news yesterday that’ll pretty much lay out what you you have to look forward to from them hopefully this year. The fine people at Deathwish Inc. already laid it out perfectly. 

 
Converge & Drop Dead Split 7″EP:
We are excited to announce that Converge will be releasing a split 7″EP with our friends in the legendary Drop Dead. The split 7″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 mentioned.
Read past the break for the new album, DVD and tour date info! Also please enjoy their video for “Axe To Fall”

 
New Album:
We spent a good portion of the winter writing and recording demos for a new album. The album will be released by Epitaph/Deathwish sometime down the road (that means no date is ready to announce yet).
Other Things:
The new Converge DVD is currently 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″LP soon. The vinyl versions of “Axe To Fall”, “No Heroes”, “You Fail Me”, and “Jane Doe” are available now on Deathwish!
