CONVERGE SWING THEIR CRITICALLY HERALDED “AXE” ON HEADLINING SPRING TOUR

2009’s Most Aggressive Band Take one of the Year’s Best Metal Albums On Tour In May

February 16, 2010 – Los Angeles, CA – Groundbreaking lords of hardcore-metal Converge have announced a headlining spring tour in support of 2009’s critically heralded, masterpiece, Axe To Fall.  In an epic kick off, the band has invited labelmates and friends Thursday, who are currently out supporting their 2009 release Common Existence, to join them on the road for the first week of the tour.  Converge will be joined by supporting acts Coalesce, Harvey Milk, Gaza, Touche Amore, Lewd Acts and Black Breath on various dates throughout the rest of the tour (see tour routing below).  Tickets are on sale now.

Converge’s seventh studio album, Axe To Fall, has catapulted one of underground hardcore/metal’s most beloved bands of the last two decades into the sights of mainstream press around the world, becoming one of 2009’s top critically received metal albums and landing the band on dozens of “Best of” yearend lists (The Onion, MySpace.com, Village Voice’s Pazz + Jop, Stereogum.com, Brooklynvegan.com, Decibel, Allmusic.com, Popmatters.com). Pitchfork.com has called Converge “this generation’s Black Flag” while Chicago Reader declares the band has “earned a reputation so formidable it’d give a lesser band performance anxiety;” Axe To Fall has helped define and “raise the bar” (Revolver) for the metal and hardcore genres in 2009 with the year’s most aggressive music.
