Converge have announced their first shows in Europe and United Kingdom this summer. The group, which features Jacob Bannon (vocals), Kurt Ballou (guitar), Nate Newton (bass) and Ben Koller (drums) who are joined by Chelsea Wolfe, Stephen Brodsky (Cave In) and Ben Chisholm (Chelsea Wolfe), will kick off the tour on June 25th at Hellfest in France.

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. 

Bloodmoon: I was released on CD and digital formats last November on Epitaph Records, the first vinyl pressing has sold out but a second vinyl pressing will be released in December 2022.  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.  

Tickets will go on sale this Monday, March 14th at 11am CET / 10am UK time here
