CONVERGE STREAM ANTICIPATED NEW RECORD

In preparation for 2012’s most anticipated metal/hardcore album of the year, Boston’s most illustrious masters of heavy music, Converge are currently streaming their prolific 8th studio album , All We Love We Leave Behind, available October 9th via Epitaph Records (vinyl on Deathwish). The record stream comes as Converge takes the cover of October's Decibel Magazine. The band has also received recent critical acclaim for their debut tracks “Shame In The Way” and "Aimless Arrow," which was recently named "Best New Track" by Pitchfork.

Fans are invited to stream the new album that includes original art for each track by front-man Jacob Bannon by going here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-vZRGK4FbI&feature=youtu.be

Creating the most antagonistic and artistic heavy album of the year, All We Love We Leave Behind, demonstrates uncompromising, evolutionary, new experimentation that breaks the most aggressive form of music down to its barebones. For the first time in years, the new album contains no special guests or outside collaborators and every aspect of the music, production and aesthetics of the album was handled by Converge in order to give listeners an unfiltered glimpse into the creative vision of these Boston-based innovators.

"All of our albums are emotional but I feel this is our most potent album to date," says Jacob Bannon who fronts what is considered to be one of the most ground - breaking and influential metal/hardcore bands of all time. “Success to me is creating something that's moving and fulfilling and I truly feel both of those things when I listen back and experience this album from start to finish."

Converge’s latest album is the most integral album to date in a catalog that's celebrated to an almost religious degree by countless fans of punk, metal and hardcore, chalking up this ability to the fact that the group have become better songwriters by spending so much time on the road and in the studio perfecting their craft.

As we await the release of All We Love We Leave Behind, Converge will share their storied catalog with fans across the US this fall, which started with a highly praised performance at FYF FEST earlier this month. The not-to-miss fall U.S. tour with Torche, Kvelertak, and special guests Nails and Whips/Chains will start on October 12th.

All We Love We Leave Behind is set to be the most intense album of 2012. Fans are invited to pre-order the new album by going to www.convergecultstore.com
