Joshua T. Cohen of BlowTheScene.com conducted an interview with drummer Reed Mullin of Raleigh, North Carolina legends CORROSION OF CONFORMITY on June 25, 2012 at The Union Transfer in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. You can now watch the chat in two parts below.
The new self-titled album from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY sold 3,800 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 157 on The Billboard 200 chart. The CD landed at position No. 5 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
“Corrosion Of Conformity” was recorded at Dave Grohl‘s Studio 606 in Northridge, California and was produced by the band in cooperation with longtime collaborator John Custer. It was mixed by John Lousteau (FOO FIGHTERS) and features artwork by Seldon Hunt (MELVINS, HIGH ON FIRE).
The effort is available on standard CD, deluxe digipak, and two exclusive vinyl formats.
Featuring the esteemed “Animosity” lineup of vocalist/bassist Mike Dean, guitarist Woody Weatherman, and drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s album closes a six-year recording gap and completes over a year of concentrated writing and recording for the band.
Mullin co-founded CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in 1982 as a hardcore punk act alongside Weatherman and Dean before leaving the band in 2001 amidst health concerns.
