Symphonic deathcore band The Convalescence performs at Barrie on Feb 14. The show unfolds at The Foxx Lounge as part of a short run of Canadian tour dates in Ontario and Quebec where the band will record their next album in Montreal.
The new album follows 2017 full-length, This Is Hell (Unique Leader Records), and will be released on Legend Recordings with Chris Donaldson, who also mixed and mastered the current album.
“We are proud of our new signing with Legend Recordings,” said vocalist Keith Wampler. “We are very excited to be working with a company who understands our vision and believes in our band as much as we do. We have a lot of new material that we consider our best yet.”
Formed in 2011 by Wampler, The Convalescence’s current lineup has spent the last several years touring nearly nonstop and earning a rapidly growing worldwide fan base. Based out of Toledo, OH, the band has toured with Venom Inc., Goatwhore, Toxic Holocaust, Testament, Sepultura, Otep, Suffocation, Cattle Decapitation, Cryptopsy, The Black Dahlia Murder and made appearances at numerous festivals such as the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, Full Terror Assault Festival, Dirtfest, Rock Fest, and Mayhem Festival.
They even have their own brand of coffee, a Brazilian Hazelnut blend called Murder Machine, made by Grindcore Coffee Co.
The 19-plus show unfolds at 8 p.m. on Feb. 14 at The Foxx Lounge, 16 Dunlop St. E., Barrie. Additional bands slated to perform include The Breathing Process and My Own Will. Admission is $10.
