Converge “Precipice” Video

We are proud to release the film/video for “Precipice / All We Love We Leave Behind” by director Craig Murray (Converge, Oxbow, Narrows, etc). Both songs appear on the Converge “All We Love We Leave Behind” album, out now via Epitaph/Deathwish Inc.

The video was conceptualized by Murray, using the narrative put forth of the death of a canine companion as told in J. Bannon’s lyrical writings. Murray uses powerful visual metaphor and imagery to communicate the crushing weight of loss and the strength of unconditional love the song explores.

To coincide with this release, we are offering an apparel design featuring visuals from the film/video. The design is available through the Converge online store.
100% of the proceeds from this design will go to the Northeast Animal Shelter in Salem, Massachusetts.

This work is dedicated to all who have lost their best friends; thank you for all you have given us.

Peasant ‘Ender’ Music Video

Cape Town hardcore band, Peasant, released their debut music video for their song Ender today.


I used to come here to feel safe.
Its been taken from me.
My inheritance taken away and given to waste.
Replaced by an empty space and a fucking bitter taste.
Born here, but a foreign tongue tells me,
I don’t belong here,
My family removed.
Washed out and washed up,
On the outskirts.
I feel the biting cold from both sides.
Yet you wonder why.
Hope fades away to never reappear.
Left at the city gates.
Like a leper.

Filmed by Peasant. Edited by Peasant.
