Converge Working On “Blood Moon” Album With Cave In’s Stephen Brodsky & Chelsea Wolfe

During an appearance on the Lead Singer Syndrome podcast, Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, etc.) revealed that Converge are working on a new album with their “Blood Moon” lineup. That project, which also featured Brodsky, Chelsea Wolfe, and Wolfe’s guitarist Ben Chisholm, previously performed live in 2016.

Brodsky said the following:

“Next year, Converge actually is gonna be doing some stuff with ‘Blood Moon‘—which is really exciting, because ‘Blood Moon‘ is this project that they did a few years ago where they went out and toured with some additional members; myself, Cheslea Wolfe and Ben [Chisholm] from Chelsea‘s band.

And we went out and did all the sort of bastard child songs, like all the deep cuts from Converge records that sound like studio experiments or stuff that they weren’t able to pull off live because they wanted more members onstage to really do the songs justice.

And that experiment went really well and the idea was like ‘well, hey why don’t we write some stuff for this lineup and put out a record?’ So three years later we’re actually getting together and doing it. So that’s supposed to come together next year. That’s pretty exciting to me.

I can tell ya, we’ve already done some writing for it and the material we’ve come up for it is really, really cool. Definitely a next step for Converge and I’m really psyched to be a part of it.”

Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Etc.) & Marissa Nadler Release Covers Of Phil Collins‘ “In The Air Tonight” & Extreme‘s “More Than Words“

Stephen Brodsky (Cave In, Mutoid Man, etc.) and Marissa Nadler have released new covers of Phil Collins‘ “In The Air Tonight” and Extreme‘s “More Than Words.“ You can stream those below:

Nadler commented:

“Steve and I both grew up in Massachusetts in the ’80s and ’90s. Phil Collins’ ‘In the Air Tonight‘ came out in 1981, and it was the year that I was born. (As well as our newest Droneflower member, Emily Lee (Shearwater/Loma/Snake Oil), and Steve a few years earlier.) I feel that the massive hit really soundtracked my childhood and I know the others do as well.

I have this long list of songs in the “would love to try to do this” category. As I’ve mentioned before, Steve Brodsky (and Emily) have made things really easy in that we share obsessive work ethics. We were lucky to bring producer Randall Dunn into mix our version, which was recorded on an extremely hot day at Steve’s apartment in Brooklyn.

‘More Than Words‘ came out in 1990. at that time I was nine and fixated on MTV. It seemed like that video was on forever and had a nostalgic weight to me. I thought it would be really cool to cover it. We wanted to make a creepy, sexy version of both of these songs.”
