When Converge dropped a new 7-inch EP in July, the metalcore legends teased an upcoming full-length as well. Today, Boston quartet has made good on the promise by announcing its first album in five years, The Dusk In Us, out November 3rd via Epitaph and Deathwish.
Converge’s ninth full-length is self-produced and is said to show the band’s artistic evolution and avant-garde sensibilities while still capturing their classic sound. The 13-track collection follows one of the best albums of their career, 2012’s All We Love We Leave Behind. Physical pre-order bundles are currently available here.
To give listeners a taste of what’s to come, Converge has also shared a new single, “Under Duress”. Frontman Jacob Bannon describes it as “my emotional reaction to the complex world in which we live” as it combines his tortured vocals with thrashing guitars. “I don’t need to learn to live in compromise,” he howls. “I will never kneel and kiss your ring.” Take a listen below.
