Converge Bloodmoon – featuring Jacob Bannon (vocals), Kurt Ballou (guitar), Nate Newton (bass), Ben Koller (drums) joined by Chelsea Wolfe, Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Converge) – have announced their first-ever U.S. shows. Specifically, the act will play shows in Boston and NYC — see full details below.
Here’s more on the band via the trek announcement, “The Bloodmoon collaboration first began in 2016 at Roadburn festival in The Netherlands where the seven-piece performed revamped Converge material under the name Blood Moon. The energy and rapturously received appearance inspired the group to want to make music together, though it would take several years before their schedules allowed.”
They add, “‘Bloodmoon: I’ was released on CD + digital formats last November on Epitaph, and vinyl format (sold out) is forthcoming on June 24th via Deathwish Inc. A second vinyl pressing, coming in December 2022, was announced today and is available for pre-order here. ‘Bloodmoon: I’ is a harrowing and atmospheric collaborative effort that sees each performer working together and outside the comfort zones in order to create something that is truly unique to the project. Listen to ‘Bloodmoon: I’ on your preferred streaming platform(s).”
