CONVERGE Premiere New Single ‘Coil’

Converge have unveiled their second single from "Bloodmoon: I" called "Coil".

CONVERGE have unveiled the second single from their upcoming album, “Bloodmoon: I” with a song called “Coil” which you can hear below.

CONVERGE frontman Jacob Bannon comments: “‘Coil’ turned out to be one of my favorite songs I’ve ever been a part of. There is an infectious slow build that ends up becoming theatrical in tone. Lyrically it was a true collaboration, with all of us expanding on each other’s ideas as they came to be. I believe Chelsea’s vocal was the starting point in that for this one. Kurt really pushed vocal harmonies to a new level as well. Encouraging many of Steve’s ideas while we were in the studio tracking together. This one really has every one of us firing on all cylinders creatively.”

So far, Converge have provided a more experimental sounding effort than their usual hardcore heaviness, with Bannon revealing that it’s been by design. “We wanted to do something grander than the typical four-piece Converge music,” Bannon says of the project, which finds them not only working with Wolfe but Ben Chisholm as well. “I feel like everyone just kept the music in mind and wanted to do what’s best for the song,” adds Stephen Brodsky.

“The project stretched my vocals in new ways. It’s so different than what I normally sing over that I was able to open up and be vulnerable with my vocals,” says Wolfe, who appears on the song alongside Bannon. “Our dynamics are pushing and pulling in all different directions on this record, and I find that to be creatively rewarding,” adds Bannon.
