Press Release:

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY RE-SCHEDULED AUSTRALIAN & NEW ZEALAND TOUR, JULY 2014 TOUR.

After having to cancel their earlier announced tour set for down under, Corrosion Of Conformity were not taking no for an answer and quickly moved to be re-scheduled. Fans and fanatics can breath a sigh of relief with a brand new tour being announced.

US Punk/Metal pioneers, Corrosion Of Conformity (bassist/vocalist Mike Dean, drummer/vocalist Reed Mullin and guitarist Woody Weatherman) exploded onto the US heavy scene way back in the early 80's.

The trio made their mark with an unrelenting live show and signature crushing riffs. In 1985 they released what would become one of the most important heavy crossover records of all time, Animosity. Both critics and fans hail this unparalleled megalith of an album as the ultimate rock/punk/metal mash up. Decibel magazine is quoted as calling the release "a crucial stylistic linchpin in the bridge between metal and punk. It irrevocably reshaped crossover’s sonic possibilities".

After nearly 30 years of musical trail blazing, you would think a rest would be on the agenda. Not the case, the band hasn't let up the pressure in the slightest. Instead of resting on their laurels, Corrosion Of Conformity hunkered down and cooked up a brand new batch of fire balls for your stereo. Their newest full-length effort (titled "IX") is set for release this June, just ahead of their ambitious 2014 Australian/NZ tour. This latest dose of masterful and heavy song-craft boasts an extremely raw sound, akin to their decimating live power.

Australian and New Zealand fans alike will have the chance to experience this unstoppable machine, first hand, on stages around their respective countries this July.
