Cave In/Mutoid Man, etc. frontman/guitarist Stephen Brodsky appeared on the most recent episode of Silverstein frontman Shane Told‘s ‘Lead Singer Syndrome‘ podcast. During the conversation he revealed that Converge will be working on a new album as part of their ‘Blood Moon‘ project sometime this year.

Back in 2016 Converge hit the road for several live performances with Brodsky, Chelsea Wolfe and her guitarist Ben Chisholm augmenting their lineup for some special performances they billed as ‘Blood Moon‘ sets. This year they plan to create an album with that lineup and have already been writing for it. Brodsky said of that:

“Next year, Converge actually is gonna be doing some stuff with ‘Blood Moon‘—which is really exciting, because ‘Blood Moon‘ is this project that they did a few years ago where they went out and toured with some additional members; myself, Cheslea Wolfe and Ben [Chisholm] from Chelsea‘s band.

And we went out and did all the sort of bastard child songs, like all the deep cuts from Converge records that sound like studio experiments or stuff that they weren’t able to pull off live because they wanted more members onstage to really do the songs justice.

And that experiment went really well and the idea was like ‘well, hey why don’t we write some stuff for this lineup and put out a record?’ So three years later we’re actually getting together and doing it. So that’s supposed to come together next year. That’s pretty exciting to me.

I can tell ya, we’ve already done some writing for it and the material we’ve come up for it is really, really cool.  Definitely a next step for Converge and I’m really psyched to be a part of it.”
