Converge have released the video for “A Single Tear,” the opening track from their long-awaited album The Dusk In Us. Due out this Friday, The Dusk In Us is the first album in five years from the Boston-based heavy-music innovators.
Directed by Max Moore, the hauntingly cinematic “A Single Tear” is both unsettling and mesmerizing. Like the song itself, the video offers a powerful sensory assault along with a nuanced meditation on birth.
“‘A Single Tear’ is about becoming a parent, and the perspective and strength it can give,” notes Converge vocalist Jacob Bannon, whose bandmates include guitarist Kurt Ballou, bassist Nate Newton, and drummer Ben Koller.
