Following a short batch of dates with Clutch in December, Raleigh, North Carolina legends Corrosion of Conformity are pleased to announce a U.S. headlining tour this March. Set to commence on March 1st at the Gramercy Theatre in New York City, the trek will hit 15 cities including two performances at this year's SXSW Music Conference in Austin. The band will be joined by Torche, Valient Thorr and A Storm Of Light.

Commented vocalist/bassist Mike Dean of the upcoming shows: "We think the lineup of music on this tour is really compatible without every band doing the same thing. We're really proud to be on this bill and touring on a new album."

As a precursor to the tour, the band will play one-off show with Hail!Hornet at the Orange Peel in Asheville, North Carolina on January 22nd. The special performance will coincide with a screening of Slow Southern Steel, the long-anticipated southern metal documentary produced by Rwake vocalist, CT. Upcoming dates are as follows:
