Converge: “I’ve never felt the need to engage things from a political or social base”
Metallic hardcore quartet Converge have just left Godcity Studios having just put the finishing touches to their eighth as-yet-untitled album, the follow-up to 2009’s face-smashing ‘Axe To Fall’.
Talking to Terrorizer, frontman Jacob Bannon commented: “Being a band for over 21 years, we’ve developed our sound. Now we just kind of evolve and mutate and get more technically proficient with every record, but there’s never a big sound change. It’s funny, you hear about bands getting older and losing the will to be aggressive, but I’ve never found any reason not to be angry. I’ve never felt the need to engage things from a political or social base. I just write from personal experience. This record is no different.”
Their new record is due to land in autumn. But, if you fancy getting sweaty before that they play Hevy fest which takes place August 3-6 at Port Lypne Wild Animal Park, Kent.
