“We sort of had the luxury of being able to tour with Soundgarden and bands like that and at the same time we could pick up and hit the road with Megadeth or Iron Maiden, we were always that kind of in between, sort of trying to defy the genres. We would tour with Metallica and also do trips with the Ramones or Black Flag, that was always sort of our thing, try to be a little flexible and and try not to get cornered up into one category”.
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will kick their long-anticipated North American headlining tour Saturday January 19th in San Antonio, Texas. Sponsored by Revolver Magazine, the month-long journey will run through February 27th in Nashville, Tennessee and features support from Crowbar and Mothership, as well as Weedeater and The Obsessed on select shows.

Upon the tour’s conclusion, band will play a special show Mardi Gras weekend with Crowbar at Southport Music Hall in New Orleans, Louisiana.
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY released the critically-adored No Cross No Crown full-length early last year via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. Recorded in North Carolina with longtime producer John Custer, the record marks the first studio recording with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan in over a decade and, earning the #67 spot on the Billboard Top 200 Chart, #12 on the Billboard Top Current Albums Chart, and #3 on the Top Hard Music Albums Chart upon its first week of release, is the highest charting album of the band’s career. Hailed Decibel Magazine of the release, “The record is filled with the kind of Sabbath meets Black Flag meets Lynyrd Skynyrd jams that were so infectious and wildly influential back when Bill Clinton seduced interns…COCdoesn’t try to change direction but instead revisits the approach that made the Keenan-fronted version so successful: powerful hooks, instrumental asides that will remind you of Sabbath’s ‘Planet Caravan’ and a rich use of textures and dynamics.”
