Converge Unleash Two New Songs + Video For ‘I Can Tell You About Pain’
YES!!! Converge have just unleashed new material for the first time in five years! The hardcore legends just put out a two-song release via Bandcamp along with a new music video for “I Can Tell You About Pain.”
It’s been too damn long since Converge unveiled the masterful All We Love We Leave Behind in 2012. The four-piece extreme act’s fan base has been thirsty for more music ever since, and today, they finally get their wish. Though it’s not a full album by any means, Converge’s new 7” offers two crushing new songs — “I Can Tell You About Pain” and the seven-minute “Eve.”
“I Can Tell You About Pain” is classic Converge — fierce, relentless and distressing. The music video for Converge’s new cut is just as unsettling, showing a man losing a grip on reality in the comfort of his own home. Converge are always looking to push the limits on artistry, so fans hoping for something thought-provoking will certainly be pleased.
“Eve” is a more experimental piece of Converge’s catalogue. Focusing on doom and drone characteristics, Converge stretch out the expansive track in a way that feels truly inspired. Kurt Ballou’s production is top-notch, as always, building a colossal wall of sound for “Eve” that remains dense even in its softest moments.
