So Converge have been pretty damn active this year. With a full length in the works, Jacob Bannon’s ambitious art project and some tours/festivals going on this year, it is hard to see these guys slowing down at all – ever (especially because some of them are pushing 40!). So, in an effort to spoil the fans, Converge recently announced a live DVD called Thousands Of Miles Between Us.
The trailer features some very raw footage of the band just going nuts. It also displays Nate Newton’s proficiency as a bassist. I don’t really know what he is doing (or what is going on for that matter), but what I’m hearing sounds about right and as a newcomer to the band, I’m just soaking it all up.
The DVD is supposed to features the band’s endeavors on a global scale, documenting tours from Europe, the US and Japan. Converge frontman Jacob Bannon’s label Deathwish Inc. have also told us that we will get “some sets in their entirety”. Looks like Converge are really outdoing themselves.
We don’t have a release date, but from what I can tell we should be expecting it sometime this year. This is shaping up to be a great year for all of those dedicated Converge fans!
