Corrosion of Conformity have inked a new deal with Candlelight Records, who will release their new album early next year.
Since early this year, the band — featuring the esteemed Animosity line-up of vocalist and bassist Mike Dean, guitarist Woody Weatherman, and drummer and vocalist Reed Mullin — has been working with long-time producer John Custer.
“Now nearly complete, their still untitled eighth studio album is planned for release early in the New Year,” says a press release.
“Gathering last summer to jam as a trio for the first time in over a decade, the treasured threesome quickly rekindled the magic that originally united and ultimately bound the musicians on a journey that today continues to impress both fans and critics,” the press release says.
“Animosity is one of my favorite records ever. To have C.O.C. on Candlelight with that line-up is simply mouth-watering. I saw the band in London recently and they did not disappoint. This hungry child can’t wait for the record,” says Candlelight’s Edward Christie.
Said Weatherman: “Writing and recording this new record as a three-piece has been a blast. Having Reed back in the fold with Mike and I brings it around full circle. I’m really looking forward to all that lies ahead this upcoming year.”
Meanwhile, the band will be playing five shows in December. They jam the House of Blues in Boston December 27; The State Theater in Portland, Maine, the next night; The Westcott Theater in Syracuse on December 29; The Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, New Jersey, on December 30; and on New Year’s Eve at the Trocadero Theater in Philadelphia.
