Converge and Chelsea Wolfe Announce Their First ‘Bloodmoon’ Live Dates
Last year’s Bloodmoon: I, the collaborative album by metallic hardcore powerhouse Converge and haunting singer-songwriter Chelsea Wolfe, was a massive success and a solid win for everyone involved. Now, the bands have announced that they intend to take this meeting of the minds to the stage with a pair of live shows.
Converge and Chelsea Wolfe will perform for fans as ‘Converge Bloodmoon’ on April 9th at Roadrunner in Boston with a to-be-determined opening act and at Brooklyn Steel in New York City with Caspian and kvltist-infuriators Liturgy on April 10th. Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday, Februrary 4th, at 12pm EST via Ticketmaster.
This is obviously extremely cool and we’re stoked to see these guys bring this show to the stage. We don’t know what we’re in for, but we’re ready.
We had Converge frontman Jacob Bannon on the MetalSucks Podcast a couple of months ago to talk about the record. He was obviously excited to discuss the project, but made it clear that collaboration was something that Converge had flirted with but hadn’t fully embraced up until a specific point.
“We always thought that it would be really cool to do it under the Converge name. How do we really collaborate? How do we break from our typical structure that we’ve had in place for so long and actually write with other people? And the idea of big-band Converge started to take shape.”
