Converge have returned with a new single titled I Can Tell You About Pain.

It’s the Massachusetts outfit’s first material since 2012 album All We Love We Leave Behind and is out now on digital formats and on 7-inch single via Epitaph and Deathwish, with the band releasing a creepy and disturbing video for the brutal track.

I Can Tell You About Pain is backed by Eve and both the video and stream of the B-side can be found below.

A statement on the new release reads: “Upon first listen it’s apparent that Converge has evolved exponentially over the years.

“The raw emotion and anger of I Can Tell You About Pain is truly unsettling, while the seven and a half minute epic Eve shows the band pushing their melodic leanings to an incredible new level.”

Converge are about to embark on a North American tour, which will be followed by a run of European dates. Find a list of all Converge’s live shows below.
