Converge at House of Vans (more by BBG)
Converge

Converge have been grinding away on a new record, but will head out of their caves to play a string of mostly-Northeastern US dates with Loma Prieta (who we recently profiled) and Git Some (ex-Planes Mistaken For Stars). That includes a stop in Brooklyn at Music Hall of Williamsburg on April 14th with Pianos Become The Teeth. Loma Prieta is unfortunately sitting out the MHoW date, but we'll let you know if they add another area show instead. Ticketing info for MHoW is forthcoming.

Meanwhile, Converge drummer Ben Koller will spend the days leading up to the tour as drummer for the mighty All Pigs Must Die. The band recently played Acheron with Seven Sisters of Sleep (who went on to play A389 Anniversary) and will hit Knitting Factory on March 9th as part of a round of dates with Narrows. Tickets are still available.

All tour dates and some video below...

First song I listened to today was "the saddest day". Easily the most consistent band in hc since '91. Stoked on this like I get stoked every time they come around

He should get a tattoo of a bear taking a shit in the woods as the bear pushes a samurai in a volcano of hummus when an eagle flys above dropping a deck of cards but the cards are missing the Aces.

Converge kicks your ass.

I am upset with converge. I quit eating meat and I never got a free CD.

So stoked for the Philly Date

Philly>Brooklyn

MHOW? Has Converge gone hipster!?

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 9:12 AM

Or maybe because they are playing Philly the previous day and want to keep the energy and the amazing hummus coming

I will say one more time

Philly>Brooklyn

they're playing a very small venue in DC...DC9 has a capacity of 180!

the Philly>Brooklyn posts are the most transparent attempts at trolling I have seen in a long time. Come on guys, step it up.

there will probably be anal rape in the pit

why do converge posts bring out all the homophobic comments? do closeted people have a big crushes on them or something?

suasages...no means no

You haven't seen the comments on the metal posts? Such hidden repression will make your head spin!

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 11:31 AM

maybe it has something to do with guys pushing 40 playing teenager music?

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 11:33 AM

^Converge do have a scoutmaster vibe going on

Philly Converge show at UT>Converge show at MHOW

What is up with near middle aged men playing anxiety teenage music. It's seems a little feigned.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:00 PM

You seemed a little feigned

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:03 PM

11:22 here - of course i'm familiar with all the 'sausage' comments, but it seems extreme on the converge posts. the scoutmaster issue makes sense to me...

Converge.....still going through the angst of puberty at 40 years old.

12:05: Trendies (or indie "rock" fans) have severely low self-esteem (which they try and overcompensate for it by pretending that they're cooler than you), so they try to go as far a length a possible to cope with that (unsuccesfully).


I don't get that Scoutmaster vibe though. Converge act like they're still in their 20s. Who cares how old they are. If they can still bring the force, then that's all that matters.

I'm with 12:22 on the "Who cares how old they are. If they can still bring the force, then that's all that matters."

Converge! Influencing hardcore since 1990. The kids are all right. Legit. Period.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:33 PM

It's very strange. Not just Converge, but also like the YOT reunion shows et al. What are these guys motives? These guys are 40+ years old and playing music that is supposed to be made for teenagers by teenagers. The audience is literally too young to drink. Why would anyone want to do this? I think it would be humiliating for men that old. Lets HOPE it's for the $.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:37 PM

Um, 12:37 by that same logic you wouldn't go to see Fugazi when they come off hiatus?

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:43 PM

^Fugazi weren't a hardcore band. But, imagine if they were still doing Minor Threat playing hardcore shows. That would be very creepy.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 12:56 PM

Sorry everyone but hardcore is very homoerotic.

Probably the first "heavy" show at Union Transfer.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 1:14 PM

What do you mean by heavy, 1:14?

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 1:16 PM

1:07 you are a Converge fan which mean you are either a teenager or one of these weirdo suspended adolescents. Either way, your opinion carries no weight.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 1:23 PM

Remember when Boris and Liturgy play Union Transfers last October?

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 1:24 PM

1:23 I can assure I am neither of those.. just admit Converge kicks ass and that Philly>Brooklyn and move on with your life....

Good for Loma Prieta. Those guys definitely have deserve more notice and it'll be nice to have them come through the city again!

So much for people on this site being tolerant...


Who gives a shit about who thinks what city is better? It's you people that are acting like childish teenagers, by the way. Who would've thought?

what are old guys doing playing in hXc bands? Kids, if they invite you into the van....run!

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 4:32 PM

hardcore is so funny.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 5:03 PM

Teenagers are not playing HC all that much today and the best HC is being done by dudes in their 30s and 40s for sure.

Next.

Oh and name me 5 HC bands currently with people all under 21? You can't.

Next.

If you are 40 years old and playing in a hardcore band or going to hardcore shows you're a total loser. Straight up.

So you know many metal heads are closeted gays.
Glad you understand that where the hidden repression is.

Posted by Anonymous | February 3, 2012 10:22 PM

I think the real question we are debating is this...
Do gays prefer sausage or hummus?

Posted by Anonymous | February 4, 2012 1:26 AM

Hey the Rolling Stones are still around, all of you with the bad comments shjould all be as fit as those guys in Converge.
They are great.
