Converge Writing New Material & Planning Expanded Edition Of “The Dusk In Us”


It’s been a long wait for new material from Salem, MA metalcore outfit Converge. Setting aside their 2021 “Bloodmoon: I” collaboration with Chelsea Wolfe, members of Cave In, and more, the group’s last full-length effort “The Dusk In Us” landed back in 2017.

In a new interview with The New Scene, Converge guitarist (and producer extraordinaire) Kurt Ballou revealed that new music is slowly coming together, along with plans for an expanded reissue of “The Dusk In Us“. He stated of that:

“I don’t know when we can expect a new record. But we are writing material and when we have enough material to record an album, we will record an album, and then we will release it. That’s pretty much how it goes in Converge. So we’re not on any kind of schedule or needing to get anything out by a certain time, but we do wanna keep writing and releasing music.

The current thing that we’re working on right now is making sure that all of our back catalog is all in print. And the next one up I think is the ‘Dusk In Us“, which I think is the most recent proper Converge album. But we have a new version of the deluxe album that’s gonna have some recent live material on it; that’s in the works.”
