Converge @ Hammerstein (more by Ryan Muir)

The rumors are true. Converge WILL hit the road with a rotating assortment of unsavory characters like Coalesce, Harvey Milk, Gaza, Black Breath, and Lewd Acts. So far no NYC dates to speak of, but there are rumblings that the NYC date will take place at the start of the tour (late April/early May).

Converge's last US tour was with Mastodon (pics of day 1 and day 2 at Hammerstein), who are also hitting the road in April. Atlanta's finest will hit the road with Baroness, Between The Buried and Me and Valient Thorr for a string of US dates, tagging Starland Ballroom on 4/21 along the way. No tickets for that show yet, but presales are running already for some of the shows (password = OBLIVION). All dates below.

Converge's Nate Newton is scheduled to play NYC on 4/13 and 4/14 with his other project Doomriders. They're at Mercury Lounge on 4/13 (tix) and 4/14 (tix).

This is what we've waited for! Man, Mastodon is touring the piss out of Crack the Skye. Wonder if they will still play it front to back on this tour...would like to hear more back catalog this time.

Looks like a pretty sweet tour! However, I heard Mastodon play all of Crack the Skye last year, so if they felt like switching it up a bit, I'd be into it.

Converge played Europa the last time they were here (before the Hammerstein/Mastodon show). Not a far cry from Death By Audio and Shea Stadium.

Starland Ballroom, and on a Wednesday night no less... a real fucking shame and poor choice of venue.

This line up is sick! Whats the Starland venue like? Is it near public transportation?

The converge pic above ... Singer looks like one of the inhabitants of Planet of the Apes for some reason ... just a wierd/funny shot.

Can't say enough about them and I really love the Doomriders record.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
