Well this is quite a nice pick me up for the new year! Without a doubt one of my favorite bands in the entire spectrum of music, Converge, are set to begin recording their eighth full-length album, the tentatively titled All We Love We Leave Behind (as stated in Decibel magazine), which is the follow-up to their brain shattering album Axe To Fall. According to theprp, it was announced on New Year’s Day that the band had finished writing material for their newest album, and that they would be recording soon.
Guitarist/producer Kurt Ballou had this to say via his Facebook:
Busy month – currently mixing a Torche record their bassist, Jon recorded, then mixing a Frank Turner tune, then Converge practice, then more High on Fire recording and mixing, then Converge record! Woohoo!
Woohoo indeed. I kind of expected them to release a new album this year, but this definitely confirms it! The real question though, is it to early to start my best of 2012 list? Because this will surely be on it!
