hot flashes news converge

Massachusetts-based CONVERGE are currently in the middle of a US tour with TORCHE and KVELERTAK. Vocalist Jacob Bannon checked in with an update following a road accident on October 24th that could have been much worse than it was:

"After driving all day/evening, we hit a patch of black ice in the mountains of Oregon. We were forced to turn into a highway divider at 40mph in order to avoid sliding under a slew of 18-wheelers. The van spun 180 degrees after impact, and we were left facing the wrong direction on the highway. We spent a few hours prying our bumper off our front wheels. Thankfully, we are rolling again. Bands, be safe out there. Never take anything for granted."
