Coral Blue

Album: All We Love We Leave Behind (2012)

  • Lyrics
  • American hardcore punkers Converge surprised their fans with this song. Rather than being a full-frontal assault, like the other cuts on All We Love We Leave Behind, it actually contains melodies! "Sonically, 'Coral Blue' is different to a lot of other tracks on the record," said vocalist Jacob Bannon to Kerrang! "There's a lot more space in the song and the structure is really different, but having said that, it definitely has things in common with songs we've done in the past."
    He continued: "There are things on the You Fail Me record (2004) and even bits on our split with Agoraphobic Nosebleed (The Poacher Diaries) that foreshadow that song. Although it's not a brand new style of song for us, it's certainly the best execution of it. It's a very confident approach to something that's sonically different."
