Formed in Salem, MA in 1990, Converge is to modern metal what the Ramones were to punk, with albums like “Jane Doe” and “You Fail Me” considered touchstones of the genre. 2009’s “Axe To Fall” takes the band’s maverick attitude to new highs. Three years after the release of No Heroes, critics agree that metal and hardcore’s most aggressive band, has delivered one of the best albums of their career and one of the best metal/hardcore albums of the year.
March 2010 sees Converge return to Australia bringing with them Philadelphia’s enigmatic trio known as Genghis Tron. Tickets go on sale Dec 4.
