Pepper Keenan, who has spent the last few years focusing on his guitar-playing duties in DOWN, rejoined his CORROSION OF CONFORMITY bandmates on stage this past Saturday, June 18 at Kristonfest in Bilbao, Spain. Fan-filmed video footage of his appearance can be seen below.
Keenan joined CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in 1990, but he did not become the band’s lead singer until the recording of “Deliverance”, which came out in 1994.
In a recent interview with The Delaware County Daily Times, Keenan was asked about his status as a member of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, which has been touring as a three-piece without Pepper. “I’m waiting to hear when we’re gonna get together and jam,” he said. “We’re supposed to play some festivals in Europe [this summer] and I’m supposed to sing on a couple of songs. Right now all I know is they’re doing the three-piece thing which I haven’t heard much of or what the deal is, but we’ve talked, just not much. Eventually they want to get together, and I want to, too, and get back to the ‘Deliverance’-era stuff and put together a new record. I’m just waitin’ for them to call.”
Legacy Recordings, Sony Music Entertainment‘s catalog division, last year released “Playlist: The Very Best Of Corrosion Of Conformity”, a new CORROSION OF CONFORMITY best-of collection in the “Playlist” compilation albums series.
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s most recent studio album with Keenan, “In the Arms of God”, came out in 2005 on Sanctuary Records.
