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!
