CONVERGE Interviewed On Australia's HEAVY TV (Video)

Heavy TV conducted an interview with CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou prior to the band's February 15 concert at Billboard The Venue in Melbourne, Australia. You can now watch the chat below.

CONVERGE's new album, "All We Love We Leave Behind", sold 6,400 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 69 on The Billboard 200 chart. Released on October 9, the effort was made available in a deluxe package that includes a 48-page, full-color hardcover, clothbound book with original art created by Jacob Bannon via Epitaph (vinyl on Deathwish).

Recorded and mixed by Ballou at his renowned Godcity Studios in Salem, Massachusetts, "All We Love We Leave Behind" is a no-frills CONVERGE album that sees the band — which also features bassist Nate Newton and drummer Ben Koller — eschewing fancy production techniques in order to create seventeen songs that work as a cohesive whole yet can also stand on their own. "There's no artificial distortion, triggers, or Auto-Tune on this album." Ballou explains, "It's all organic, it's real sounds that capture the way the band performs live."

CONVERGE last fall completed a U.S. tour with support from TORCHE and KVELERTAK.
