Converge to record new album
Converge will soon enter the studio to begin recording a new album, their first since 2012's All We Love We Leave Behind. The news comes via a 2016 wrap-up from drummer Ben Koller (see below), who says that Converge will commence tracking in the spring (presumably with Kurt Ballou).
"Fuck 2016 but can't really complain. Just finished recording albums with All Piges Must Die, Mutoid Man and The Armed, the new Converge album will start tracking in the Spring, and there's whispers in the dark of a new Killer Be Killed album. Played a ton of shows all over the world with 3 bands that I fuckin love, did some electronic drum tracking with Room Sound, made some crazy videos with Mrs. Woman and got some Koller cam POV drum footage into the new Jim Jarmusch doc about the Stooges. 2017 is already gearing up to be more productive than ever. See you guys out in the wild world."
