Converge singer Jacob Bannon has stated that the band’s last album, All We Love We Leave Behind, was dedicated to his dog that passed away. It’s taken a while for the band to make a video, but the album’s title track has finally gotten the cinematic treatment it deserves. Knowing what the album is about makes the video especially poignant, as an animated version of a dog turns into dust and floats skyward. It’s not a spoiler alert to say that the dog returns in the video, however. The whole video, which was “built, shot and edited” by Craig Murray, is incredibly evocative. Hearing the song reminded us of how good the band’s last album was, and with the band back in the studio, we might get to hear some new Converge before too long.
