The 22-year metal vets Converge are back on the road in support of their fierce eighth studio record, All We Love We Leave Behind. This release comes after 2009's album, Axe to Fall, brought the Salem, Massachusetts, metal quartet plenty of well-earned acclaim from all corners of the music world, while also delivering on the promise suggested by their explosive 2001 masterpiece, Jane Doe. Although that 11-year-old record boldly assured ascendancy to the metal pantheon, Converge haven't churned out tame rehashes of their old work. Instead, they've always pushed their roiling sound further and faster while consistently challenging their fans to keep up with them in the process. With Torche, Kvelertak, and Mourner. 18+.
