Misleading headline is misleading. Converge are currently touring the Europe and on Thursday posted some short footage with the caption “We’ve been working dligently on this tour at every moment we get to write new music.” It then leads into a drum and guitar jam that includes drummer Ben Koller and guitarist Kurt Ballou shredding – except Koller is playing with shoes on his hands and Ballou has gloves on his. Here’s the thing though – Converge fucking around during soundcheck is still better than what a lot of other bands seriously put out.
While it has been two years since their last album, All We Love We Leave Behind, it doesn’t seem like there’s going to be a new album coming just yet. Hopefully, they actually are diligently working on new music and we’ll have something from them early next year. It’s pretty insane to think that they’ve been putting out music for 20 years no.
