CONVERGE: “I Can Tell You about Pain” b/w “Eve”: 7”

Sep 20, 2017

It’s been five years since Converge’s last full length, 2012’s seminal All We Love We Leave Behind. As a band whose ethos has always been about continued forward progression, the two tracks on this record are as much a move forward as they are a look back at a band with over two decades of history behind them. The A side track, “I Can Tell You about Pain,” is a short, punchy track, with all the blistering aggression I’ve come to expect from Converge over the years. The B side track, “Eve,” is longer, darker, and more ethereal, including ominously sung vocals, and an epic buildup. Where All We Love We Leave Behind saw Converge reaching new levels of artistic greatness, this 7” teaser for their forthcoming album promises to take the band to even greater heights. –Paul J.
