Converge is the gift that keeps on giving.

The band have already been confirmed for Temples Festival, but will apparently take that show as a launch point for what they’re calling “DW Fest Europe”. Not only that, but they will bring Trap Them, Young and In The Way and Harm’s Way with them. Check out the full release below, including full dates.

Do you like Enslaved? You should. If you do, you probably already know about their new album slated for a March 15th release, entitled In Times. If you didn’t know, you do know.
