Converge share 30+ minute experimental rework of “Aimless Arrow”
To help combat the situation we're all in, Converge have released "Endless Arrow," a 30+ minute experimental version of "Aimless Arrow," the killer opening track of 2012's All We Love We Leave Behind (which we named one of the best albums of the 2010s). The band writes:
To keep people entertained in these challenging times, Converge present “Endless Arrow”; A over 30 minute ambient/experimental version of our song “Aimless Arrow” created by Kurt Ballou. This ambient/experimental track is offered as a “Pay What You Want” download.
