Converge Still Have Four Songs Left Over From “The Dusk In Us” Sessions

It looks like Converge still have four tracks left over from the sessions for their latest album “The Dusk In Us.” Kurt Ballou revealed the news to Exclaim! and said some them are actually the “strongest” ones they recorded.

Ballou said the following:

“We all disagreed about what the strongest songs were, and which songs made for the best record. I think we’re all equally unhappy with what ended up on the album. It was a compromise. Some of the songs on that album are actually some of the weakest ones that we recorded, and some of the ones that aren’t on the album are the strongest. We’re just not exactly sure how we’re going to release them yet. Whether it’s B-sides, or an EP, we don’t know yet.”
