Highlight Of The Year

Look, it's really predictable, but for the ridiculous fan that I am, getting a new Converge album for the first time in over five years made me stupidly happy. Especially when it lived up to every expectation that I had of it.

Prediction For 2018

Converge tour? I'm a "live in the now" kind of person. I'm not real good at planning for the future, but I am pretty keen to see how the Australian incarnation of Download Festival goes. Hopefully well!
