What a run! Converge who just released their newest output The Dusk In Us are not only playing Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands. They use their stay in Tilburg as the beginning of a full European tour. At least central Europe/UK might get some dates featuring interesting acts!
American sludgers Thou will be opening, while Finland’s Grave Pleasures will pleasure us not only with morbid sounds. Hence Crowbar are probably no unknown names they might also be a stand alone reason to go to a show, BUT there is even Converge headlining those events! Here are some thoughts of our writer Andrew, who recently reviewed the new Converge record:
The ‘album of the year’ epithet gets thrown around a lot this time of year, the October through December quarter being the music industry’s version of ‘Oscar® Bait’ season. Perhaps the term gets overused, and yet one cannot help but imagine albums by bands like Mastodon, Junius, Exocrine, Bell Witch, Amenra, and too many others to list here as spectacular visuals in exposition, rising action, and falling action, with Converge appearing near the film’s climax, having satisfied, tired grins on their faces as they walk off into the sunset.
