Published Jan 24, 2013Converge bassist Nate Newton kept himself busy last year promoting the band's All We Love We Leave Behind, but is now focused on recording a new LP with his powerful punk 'n' roll unit Doomriders.
The band recently posted a few photos of themselves holed up in Newton's Converge bandmate Kurt Ballou's esteemed GodCity studios in Salem, MA, along with the message "Knock knock. Who's there? We are recording a new album at Godcity as you read this." It's, uh, kind of a poorly delivered joke, but the punchline is sure to please fans of the band.
While the group haven't delivered too many details on the set just yet, it'll arrive through longtime label Deathwish Inc later in 2013. This will also be the first recording to feature Clouds drummer Q behind the kit, though he took over for John-Robert Conners (Cave In) in 2010.
Doomriders last LP was 2009's destructive Darkness Comes Alive, which we said was "upbeat and driving, while darker and more pointed" than their 2005 debut, Black Thunder.
