Wear Your Wounds, the product of years of lo-fi solo recordings by Converge founder Jacob Bannon has released "Goodbye Old Friend," the first single from upcoming release, WYW (out April 7th on Deathwish).
On this debut release, Bannon is joined by guest musicians Kurt Ballou (Converge), Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller), Chris Maggio (Sleigh Bells, Trap Them, Coliseum), and Sean Martin (Hatebreed, Cage, Kid Cudi, Twitching Tongues). Together they have created a powerful album that is unlike anything they have ever individually worked on. The album is comprised of ten emotionally heavy songs that call to the slower, more epic leanings of Converge, as well as Bannon’s previous work in Supermachiner. Wear Your Wounds brings to mind the dense multi-layered approach of Swans and early Pink Floyd, while being as vulnerable as influences Sparklehorse, Songs: Ohia, other like minded artists.
Wear Your Wounds will debut in a live setting on April 22nd at Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, The Netherlands as part of John Dyer Baizley’s curation. Find more information about this special Roadburn performance here.
