The Groove Guide, with Anchor & Shogun presents Converge New Zealand Tour, Auckland and Wellington March 2010.

Converge, formed in the winter of 1990 and self described as "hardcore kids with leftover Slayer riffs", an uncompromised artistic vision and an array of influences ranging from The Cure and Black Sabbath to Black Flag, (notably being described as the former of this generation). Such ingredients have led the band to be credited with giving rise to an entire genre whilst retaining an individuality in their sound that is completely their own.

Converge now sit as being unarguably one of the most important bands in the history of aggressive music.

Though their previous albums - Petitioning the Empty Sky (1997), When Forever Comes Crashing (1998), Jane Doe (2001), You Fail Me (2004) and No Heroes (2006) have already established Converge as trendsetters and innovators, the bands sixth studio album, 'Axe To Fall', takes the band's maverick attitude to new highs.

After nearly 20 years, a solid run of releases, and an unparalleled live show that's gone from flailing kids to legendary exorcism for both band and audience. The band have earned a die hard cult following world wide.

This will be a monumental tour for the strong Kiwi fanbase that has waited years to see Converge; and with the chosen venues being notorious for sellout crowds, this tour promises to deliver unforgettable experiences.
