Converge Announce New 7″ EP

Converge are currently touring Europe in support of their most recent record, the phenomenal Axe To Fall. In fact, they hit the shores of the UK today with a show in Brighton, which I am told was amazing. No surprises there then.

Just announced, they will be selling a brand new, limited edition 7″ EP entitled On My Shield on this tour, featuring a brand-new A-side track On My Shield, with laser etching on the B-side. Lasers! Awesome.

The run will be limited to 3000 copies, divided into three different colours: 1000 for the tour, 1000 for the Deathwish e-store, and 1000 to be made available to vinyl retailers. The latter two of these will come with a free download card, so I guess the thing will hit the internet pretty soon after, but, and I quote the Convergecult official announcement, once these 7″EPs are gone, they are gone forever, so get your hands on a copy whilst you can.

I will probably be trying to get a copy when the tour rolls through Birmingham. That’s right Alabama, we’ve got one too, and ours was first!
