“Hardcore is meeting a kid from halfway across the world for the first time and feeling like you have known him or her for all your life. Hardcore is driving eight hours when you are flat broke to see a band most people would say that can’t play their instruments and that you can’t understand their singer. Hardcore is knowing that your phone bill will kill you. Hardcore is road trips, touring and meeting people. Hardcore is a teacher. Teaching we are all equal, that colours or sexual preferences don’t matter. Hardcore teaches that animals are not ours to kill and to open your mind and question everything. Hardcore is moshing in your bedroom. Hardcore is energy, emotion and anger. Hardcore is that feeling when I see or hear a new band that sends chills down my spine.”—Scott Vogel of Terror (via stagedives)
"Converge & Dropdead Split 7"EP: We are excited to announce that Converge will be releasing a split 7”EP with our friends in the legendary Dropdead. The split 7”EP will be self released by both bands, and distributed to retailers/distros by Deathwish Direct and Armageddon.
New Album: We spent a good portion of the winter writing and recording demos for a new album. The album will be released by Epitaph/Deathwish sometime down the road (that means no date is ready to announce yet).
Other Things: The new Converge DVD is currently being edited. If the Hard Drive Gods smile on us, we hope to get through this process soon and have it released this year. Also Deathwish will be repressing our “Unloved And Weeded Out” collection as a 12”LP soon. The vinyl versions of “Axe To Fall”, “No Heroes”, “You Fail Me”, and “Jane Doe” are available now on Deathwish.”
