Converge press release:
'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.
