Following last years outstanding show’s in Ireland, Corrosion of Conformity are coming back! The bands return will see the classic  Deliverance lineup of Pepper, Woody, Mike and Reed.

Corrosion of Conformity emerged from hibernation as a trio and released 2012’s eponymous album and 2014’s “IX” to wide acclaim and have since been busy recording a new album which is due to be released via Nuclear Blast in the near future!

The band were originally an influential hardcore punk/heavy metal crossover act before reaching critical success with a new lineup on 1991’s Blind album.  That trajectory continued with wider appeal as Keenan took over as primary vocalist on Deliverance (1994) and Wiseblood (1996).

These two recordings in particular fused the raw energy of the previous albums with some great strides forward in classic rock inspired songwriting and more spacious production and execution, which were often copied but rarely equaled.

This juggernaut gained mass and momentum with relentless touring alongside Metallica, Megadeth, Clutch, Eyehategod and many more.

Eventually, following In the Arms of God, 2005, Keenan focused all energy on his hometown band Down.
