Hank Pearl of UVTV conducted an interview with CORROSION OF CONFORMITYbefore the band’s July 30, 2011 concert at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago, Illinois. You can now watch the chat below.
The reunited classic “Animosity” lineup of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY — Mike Dean, Woody Weatherman and Reed Mullin (drums) — canceled several shows last month after Mullin “fell out from the heat” just before the band’s show in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY entered the studio earlier in the year with longtime producer John Custer (1991’s “Blind”, 1994’s “Deliverance”, 1996’s “Wiseblood”, 2000’s “America’s Volume Dealer”, 2005’s “In The Arms Of God”) to begin recording the band’s new album for a late 2011 release.
In a recent interview with UGO, Dean stated about the forthcoming CD, “The title is yet to be determined. A self-titled release crossed our minds but the album title is a game-time decision. October is a good time but if we miss that, early 2012 would be a fine time for release. ‘The Moneychangers’, ‘River Of Stone’ and ‘Rat City’ are some of the [song]titles [that will appear on the CD].”
Speaking to Metal Kaoz, Dean described CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s new material as “familiar but surprising. All of the old influences are there — hardcore, three generations of heavy rock and no rules as to how to combine them and make something new and creative.”
