Converge Remain Unharmed After Car Crash

Hardcore heroes Converge recently got into a car crash while touring the US. Above is the picture singer Jacob Bannon posted on Instagram, the band released the following statement on their Facebook page:

“Yesterday, after ten hours of driving, we hit black ice in the Oregon mountains. We were forced to crash into a highway divider in order to keep from sliding under 18 wheelers. Though we were all alright, we were precariously stuck facing the wrong direction on the highway for a few hours. With a little ingenuity and the help of a highway worker with some tow chains, we managed to pry our bumper off our front wheels. A few hours later, we were back on the road. Never take anything for granted. Just got to Seattle, time for a positive show. Thanks people.”

We should all be glad nothing that serious has happened here (with the Baroness crash still in our minds). Converge will go on with their tour, to bring it to Europe later this year with support from Touche Amore, A Storm Of Light, and The Secret. Check out those dates below:
