CONVERGE Drop "Beautiful Ruin" EP
Ever the busy bodies, Converge dropped an EP on short notice this past Friday. Beautiful Ruin holds four tracks that fly by in just over six minutes. "Permanent Blue" and "Churches And Jails" hold all the frantic punk energy the band is known for. The title track closes the album out and packs some nice riffs in under 90 seconds. And record favorite "Melancholia" holds a catchy groove that's relatively accessible for Converge and comes with a trippy video that you can view below. The band continues to set the bar high and Beautiful Ruin is a more than pleasant surprise after their highly praised The Dusk In Us album that came out last year.
