Converge - A Single Tear

"Five years since their last release, CONVERGE returned with "The Dusk In Us" last year, a brutal but beautiful album that shows the band’s artistic evolution while still capturing their classic sound.

"The Dusk In Us" is the ninth full-length from the Boston-based music innovators that consists of vocalist Jacob Bannon, guitarist Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton and drummer Ben Koller.

CONVERGE formed in Massachusetts in 1990, then made their debut with 1994’s "Halo in a Haystack". Soon regarded as pioneers within the aggressive music arena, the band had a major breakthrough with their landmark 2001 album release "Jane Doe" praised as “iconic” by the A.V. Club (who also noted that Jane Doe “reaches canonical status with every re-listen”). "The Dusk In Us" arrives as the follow-up to 2012’s "All We Love We Leave Behind", an album that "Consequence Of Sound" called “as skull-cleaving as it is beautiful” and that made its way onto Pitchfork’s Best New Music list.

Today's tune and the album-opening "A Single Tear", where we get some energetic drums, caustic riffs and a harsh screaming vocals.  The tune is about becoming a parent, and the perspective and strength it can give.  Enjoy!
