After dropping a scorching 7-inch EP this summer, Converge announced its first full-length album in five years with The Dusk In Us, which is due for release on November 3rd via Epitaph and Deathwish. With that announcement came “Under Duress”, the record’s first single.
Now, the band has released another song, “Reptilian”, which evokes feelings of dread with its ominous intro before segueing into a blast of pummeling drums, roaring guitars, and frontman Jacob Bannon’s emphatic vocals, which here oscillate between ear-shredding barks and his melodic wail. See a lyric video for it above.
The band is also hitting the eastern seaboard this December for a series of shows with cult favorites Pile and the D.C. indie rockers of Give. Update: Converge have added West Coast tour dates for early 2018. See the full schedule below.
