To celebrate the upcoming 15 year anniversary of their legendary Jane Doe album, CONVERGE will perform the album in its entirety for the first and last time on April 14, 2016. The album is considered a classic that defined the metallic hardcore genre as we know it today. This special set is exclusive to the 2016 Roadburn Festival and will not be played again anywhere, ever.
Two days later on April 16, 2016, the band will perform as CONVERGE “Blood Moon” collaborative set featuring guest musicians Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm, Stephen Brodsky (CAVE IN), and Steve Von Till (NEUROSIS). Together as a multi-instrumental group they will create renditions of existing CONVERGE material focusing on the band’s slower, more ambitious work within their legendary catalog.
Hydra Head Records has announced their second ever Champions of Sound Tour. Originally devised in 2003 and also featuring label staples and instrumental metal masters, PELICAN, this year’s trek sees avant-metal pioneers KAYO DOT, supporting their latest Blue Lambency Downward, and CAVE-IN frontman Stephen Brodsky (aka Stove Bredsky), support his psychedelic rock outing that is the Black Ribbon Award. Joining the bill in major cities such as New York, Philadelphia, and Boston, are the almighty ZOZOBRA.
