Converge will be releasing a reissue of You Fail Me called You Fail Me: Redux. The new version will be out on June 17th via Epitaph and Deathwish and features a new mix by guitarist/producer Kurt Ballou, new mastering from Alan Douches, and new packaging by frontman/artist Jacob Bannon. Pre-orders are now up.
Axe to Fall has just been getting rave reviews. You guys have certainly cemented yourselves into that hardcore band, surviving about two decades now. What do you have to say about that?
