huh???? Converge and Mastodon have toured together many times before that. Off the top of my head, Converge/American Nightmare/Mastodon (around the time of Lifesblood, I think), Converge/Mastodon/The Bronx, think they did some dates with Isis too. Also a tour with Priestess. I completely agree that they're out of place with Dethklok (who isn't out of place touring with a fake band?) but Converge and Mastodon have a very long history together.
Converge is one of the greatest live bands of all time. Wish this tour would hit Atlanta.
