(March 14th, 2018) – It has become blatantly apparent that Corrosion Of Conformity cannot keep themselves away from neither the open road nor their extensive fanbase, as the punk-metal outfit has announced both a Latin American tour, a slew of European festival dates, and a full North American tour this spring through summer. The 6-date Latin American tour, slated to run from May 12th to May 19th, includes performances in Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Mexico. Shortly thereafter, the band will perform at several European festival dates in June before returning to the United States to kick off the second leg of their tour supporting Black Label Society this summer. Beginning on July 14th in Cadott, Wisconsin, the nearly month-long tour will weave through two dozen U.S. cities, ending finally on August 11th in Sayreville, NJ. Additional support on this tour will once again be provided by Eyehategod. A complete list of confirmed dates can be found below!
Corrosion Of Conformity’s rigorous 2018 touring schedule is in continued support of their critically-acclaimed full-length No Cross No Crown, which was released earlier this January via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Recorded in North Carolina with their longtime Grammy-nominated producer John Custer, No Cross No Crown marked the first studio recording with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Kennan in over a decade. Cantankerours and cinematic, all with the band’s signature punk infused aggression, No Cross No Crown‘s unsurprisingly steadfast accumulation of accolades set its course to prominence as the highest charting album in the band’s career, earning #67 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, #12 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart, and #3 on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart.
About Corrosion Of Conformity
Corrosion of Conformity is an American heavy metal band from Raleigh, North Carolina formed in 1982. For almost the majority of its existence, the band has consisted of guitarist Woody Weatherman, bassist Mike Dean (who left in 1987 but rejoined six years later), drummer Reed Mullin (who left in 2001 but rejoined nine years later) and vocalist and rhythm guitarist Pepper Keenan (who joined the band in 1989). After a hiatus in 2006, Corrosion of Conformity returned in 2010 without Keenan, who had been busy touring and recording with Down, but announced their reunion with him in December 2014. Corrosion of Conformity started as a hardcore punk band but later moved towards a slower and blues-tinged heavy metal sound. To date, the band has released ten studio albums, four EPs, one compilation, and one live album. Their first three studio albums―Eye for an Eye (1984), Animosity (1985) and Blind (1991)―attracted the attention of Columbia Records, who signed the band in 1993. Corrosion of Conformity found success with the releaseof their 1994 fourth studio album, Deliverance, which peaked at number 155 on the Billboard 200 and spawned the hits “Albatross” and “Clean My Wounds”. Their 1996 follow-up Wiseblood was also successful, and became Corrosion of Conformity’s highest-charting album in the United States, peaking at number 104 on the Billboard 200. Their latest album, No Cross No Crown, was released on January 12, 2018 on Nuclear Blast Records.
