      Converge is a prolific punk-metal band formed in 1990 and after several singles, released their first full-length, Halo in a Haystack, in 1994. By 2000, with the release of their fourth full-length, Jane Doe, Converge were regarded as one of the most original and innovative bands to emerge from the punk underground. A quartet consisting of Jacob Bannon, Kurt Ballou, Nate Newton and Ben Koller, the band also found time to lend out members to various side projects, including Kingdom of the Sun, Old Man Gloom and Kid Kilowatt (the short-lived band that also included members of Cave In). Known for intense live shows and extensive touring, the band played over 600 shows in ten years, making it possible for them to retain their cult status within the punk underground without the kind of commercial success that has vaulted other punk bands into the middle of alternative rock radio and press.Current Line-up:-Jacob Bannon (Vocals, Lyrics, Visuals)Kurt Ballou (Guitar, Vocals, Bass Guitar, Keyboards, Theremin)Nate Newton (Bass Guitar, Vocals)Ben Koller (Drums)Former Members:-Jeff Feinberg (Guitar, Bass: 1991-1997)Aaron Dalbec (Guitar: 1994-2001) Damon Bellorado (Drums: 1991-1999)John Digiorgio (Drums: 1999)Erik Ralston (Bass: 1993)Stephen Brodsky (Bass: 1997-1998)
