Hahaha, very funny, yes.

There’s a long list of these, so I’ll get right to it; try and keep up. Needless to say, good times all round.

1) Shows. Lots of them. Good ones!

2) Split EP with Drop Dead!

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 above.”

3) 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)”

4) News on that DVD

“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.”

All good news, all of the time. The UK’s kinda getting ‘stiffed’ with only one show, but it’s in London, so I don’t really care. Expect it to sell out QUICKLY though. New material is always welcome, and if you can’t get to any of those shows then the DVD is the next best thing for you unlucky sods. Shit gets so intense it’s like camping in the woods (ba-dum tsch!).

Hopefully more specific news soon.
