We’ve been wanting to hear from these guys! After five years since unleashing new material, hard rock band Converge released a new 7” with two new songs as well as a video for their song “I Can Tell You About Pain.”
The band released their last album All We Love We Leave Behind in 2012, which was a hit among the Converge fan base. The suspense for more seemed to grow each year, but we’re certainly not disappointed with the fresh songs. The first is titled “I Can Tell You About Pain,” and the second is called “Eve,” which clocks in at 7 minutes.
Both the music and the video for “I Can Tell You About Pain” definitely gets your thoughts turning. The sound itself creates and unnerving feel, which the band paired with a video displaying a man losing touch with reality. The artistic yet edgy combination is eerily compelling.
“Eve” is an experimental piece with a heavy drone sound. Despite the expansiveness of the track, time seems to fly by when listening to it.
You can get the new Converge 7” via Bandcamp. Check out the “I Can Tell You About Pain” music video below!
