Hardcore Heroes Converge Announce North American Tour Dates

The first time I came across the music of Converge, I had absolutely no idea what to make of it. It was loud, insane, and all kinds of amazing. It combined heavy metal with hardcore punk and mathcore and noise rock all into a dozen or so short bursts. Converge have been together for over 20 years and have remained just as loud and crazy as they’ve always been. Unfortunately, I’ll be in Germany when they hit the American road this fall, but that doesn’t mean you guys can’t have a crazy good time in a hot sweaty room.

Below are the dates for the tour, which kicks off October 12 in New Britain, Connecticut, and concludes November 12 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Joining them will be the new kings of sludge metal Torche, Norwegian Viking lords Kvelertak, and on select dates you can catch Nails and Whips/Chains.
