CONVERGE and Deathwish Inc. mastermind Jacob Bannon has released the details of his upcoming side project WEAR YOUR WOUNDS that will officially release its debut album called “WYW” on April 7th. Check out more details below.
Jake has been releasing some solo recordings since 2012, when he released a split record with REVALATOR, but “WYW” will mark his first proper full length. The album features appearances from his buddy from CONVERGE, Kurt Ballou, Mike McKenzie of THE RED CHORD, Chris Maggio of TRAP THEM / COLISEUM and Sean Martin of HATEBREED / TWITCHING TONGUES.
Wear Your Wounds is the product of years of Lo-fi solo recordings by Converge founder Jacob Bannon. On this release he 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 his previous work in Supermachiner. Bringing 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.
