Converge unveil swirling, serpentine new single, ‘Coil’
The song appears on their new collaborative album, ‘Bloodmoon: I’, out November 19th on CD/Digital and on Vinyl June 24th.
As they prepare for the release of their collaborative new album—featuring Chelsea Wolfe, Ben Chisholm and Stephen Brodsky, Converge have unveiled the second single from ‘Bloodmoon: I’. The expansive and intricate new song ‘Coil’. A true team effort, 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 everyone of us firing on all cylinders creatively.” Watch the visualizer for ‘Coil’:
‘Bloodmoon: I’ is Converge – Jacob Bannon (vocals), Kurt Ballou (guitar), Nate Newton (bass), Ben Koller (drums) – featuring Chelsea Wolfe, Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Converge), and Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe).
