Corrosion of Conformity has begun writing material for their next album; which will be the follow-up to the well-received self-titled record released via Candlelight Records late February 2012, the reissue of their Eye for an Eye debut, and recently released Scion A/V EP Megalodon. The album, untitled at this time, will again feature the trio of vocalist/bassist Mike Dean, guitarist Woodroe Weatherman, and drummer Reed Mullin.
Last week the band announced their first live performance for the New Year at the annual Metal Fest Chile on April 13th. It will be the first Corrosion of Conformity appearance ever in Chile. Mike Dean comments: “We have been talking about going to South American forever and with Chile being a big source of so much of our Facebook traffic, I know it’s going to be epic. Another chance for us to do a festival with Down is always a very good thing.”
The festival follows the completion of the band’s recent US tour alongside High on Fire, which concluded in southern California. The trio was also a featured participant on Barge from Hell that left Florida shores on December 7. Dean notes: “The cruise was pretty awesome. We had Rick and Jonathan from Torche masquerading as our crew and watching their antics alone was worth the trip. The seas were calm so there was no hurling over the bow.”
Formed in Raleigh, North Carolina in 1982, Corrosion of Conformity have influenced countless others with their politically charged and socially aware lyrics. With over 1.1 million albums sold in the United States alone, the band continues to find new fans via non-stop touring.
