CORROSION OF CONFORMITY to Crush Pensacola

2/26/2019 Vinyl Music Hall – Pensacola, FL

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. Additionally, the tour includes a free CORROSION OF CONFORMITY solo performance at Mohegan Sun Casino and Resort in Uncasville, Connecticut February 15th. Upon the tour’s conclusion, band will play a special show Mardi Gras weekend with Crowbar at Southport Music Hall in New Orleans, Louisiana.

In October, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will appear on the inaugural MegaCruise alongside Megadeth, Anthrax, Testament, Overkill, and so many others with more shows to be announced in the months to come. See all confirmed dates below.

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…COC doesn’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.”

No Cross No Crown is available on CD, digital, vinyl, and cassette formats. Various order bundles are available at nuclearblast.com/coc-nocrossnocrown.

“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…COC doesn’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…” — Decibel

“…burly, surly and southern-fried — basically, everything fans could hope for.” — Revolver

“… these motherfuckers have been at it forever, and they’ve just made their best album in twenty years.” — Team Rock

“…a release that proves that the gentlemen are back on their game and ready to rumble.” Blabbermoutth

“…powerful and unstoppable as an avalanche.” — Kerrang!

“…so good it should really be toured in full, played from top to bottom as a complete movement of music.” — PureGrainAudio

 “…undoubtedly one of finest releases in CORROSION OF CONFORMITY‘s storied career.” — Pop Matters

“…where 35-plus years from getting started, most artists still active have long since slid into a mediocrity of form in playing to what’s expected of them, COC here sound reinvigorated and offer a reminder to all willing to hear it of a big part of what made them who they are in the first place.” — The Obelisk

“… a rare example of a classic line-up coming back to make music and killing it in the process.” Sputnik Music
