NEW CONVERGE COVER ART IS BAD-AXED
Ahhh, lame puns. Sometimes you’re just in the mood, y’know?
ANYWAY, the new Converge album, Axe to Fall, comes out October 17 on Epitaph. That alone might be reason enough to get excited, but various inhabitants of the MetalSucks Mansion have heard from those in the know that the album is “as good as No Heroes” and/or “better than Jane Doe.” Those are both big statements – the latter obviously being an almost impossible feat – but hopefully the peeps that made these proclamations speak the truth.
Now the cover art has been released; I think it’s a safe assumption that it’s by Jacob Bannon himself, but I don’t have official confirmation on that. In any case, I don’t know if it’s quite as iconic as the cover art for Jane Doe or No Heroes or even You Fail Me, but it’s still the sweetest album art I’ve seen by a non-grind band this year. Check it out:
So… is it October yet?
