Today marks the release of “Reptilian,” the new single from Boston-based heavy-music innovators Converge. The track appears on Converge’s forthcoming album The Dusk In Us, set for release via Epitaph and Deathwish on November 3.
From its haunting intro to its frenetic apex, “Reptilian” perfectly embodies the avant-garde sensibilities and cathartic energy of The Dusk In Us. The ninth full-length from Converge, The Dusk In Us is the band’s first album in five years.

Featuring vocalist Jacob Bannon, guitarist Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton, and drummer Ben Koller, The Dusk In Us arrives as the follow-up to Converge’s acclaimed 2012 album All We Love We Leave Behind. Along with landing on Pitchfork’s Best New Music list, All We Love We Leave Behind was called “as skull-cleaving as it is beautiful” by Consequence Of Sound.
Produced by Converge and mixed by Ballou at his renowned Godcity Studios, The Dusk In Us shows the band’s artistic evolution while still capturing their classic sound. As pioneers within the aggressive music arena, Converge formed in Massachusetts in 1990, made their debut with 1994’s Halo in a Haystack, and broke through with their landmark album Jane Doe (a 2001 release praised as “iconic” by the A.V. Club).
