On a recent episode of the Lead Singer Syndrome podcast hosted by Silverstein’s Shane Told, Cave In and Mutoid Man’s Stephen Brodsky confirmed plans that he will be collaborating with Converge to take the Blood Moon project to the studio, according to The PRP.
Blood Moon refers to Converge’s 2016 collaboration with Brodsky, as well as Chelsea Wolfe and her guitarist Ben Chisholm, during a string of live sets that year. The shows as Blood Moon took place in Europe in April of that year While Chelsea Wolfe is believed to be involved in the studio project, there is no official confirmation yet.
Though Blood Moon captivated fans during live sets, there has been zero plans to record projects under Blood Moon in the studio until now. In an excerpt from the podcast, Brodsky states:
“Next year, Converge actually is gonna be doing some stuff with ‘Blood Moon‘—which is really exciting, because ‘Blood Moon’ is this project that they did a few years ago where they went out and toured with some additional members; myself, Cheslea Wolfe and Ben[Chisholm] from Chelsea‘s band.
And we went out and did all the sort of bastard child songs, like all the deep cuts from Converge records that sound like studio experiments or stuff that they weren’t able to pull off live because they wanted more members onstage to really do the songs justice.
And that experiment went really well and the idea was like ‘well, hey why don’t we write some stuff for this lineup and put out a record?’ So three years later we’re actually getting together and doing it. So that’s supposed to come together next year. That’s pretty exciting to me.
I can tell ya, we’ve already done some writing for it and the material we’ve come up for it is really, really cool. Definitely a next step for Converge and I’m really psyched to be a part of it.”
