Corrosion of Conformity will perform at the Marquee Theatre in Tempe, Arizona tomorrow night as part of the band's trek with Danzig, which began on April 17th. The short tour allows the trio a momentary break from work on the follow-up to 2012’s self-titled album.

The dates with Danzig follow the band’s recent festival appearance in Santiago, Chile; the band playing The Metal Fest alongside Down, Twisted Sister, Devin Townsend Project and others.

Vocalist/bassist Mike Dean comments, “We took time out from writing and recording to play Chile for the first time. We had a blast hanging out with Down. Of course Pepper [Keenan] played a couple of songs with us and I got to listen to Jimmy Bower and Pat Bruders sing Eagles songs for the entire flight back to the states. We picked up some rented gear in Los Angeles and drove through the desert to start the Danzig tour in Las Vegas. Things have been rolling since then and it has been really good travels. Denver and Albuquerque were particularly awesome. Austin was great too.”

The band’s current set includes a mix of new and old songs, including “Deliverance,” “Priest Brains,” “Strong Medicine Too Late,” “Holier,” “Mad World,” “Hungry Child,” “Technocracy,” plus “Psychic Vampire,” “Your Tomorrow,” and “The Moneychangers” from the 2012 self-titled album.

On the conclusion of the tour, Corrosion of Conformity will return to the rehearsal room to pick up on the remaining songwriting and album work before hitting the recording studio. Dean confirms, “We have a lot of lyric writing to refine but a lot of solid musical arrangements in place. We plan to begin basic tracking for half the songs as soon as we return to North Carolina.”

Continuing he notes, “During the recording of the Megalodon EP (Scion A/V 2012), we settled into a good style of collaboration with our long-time producer John Custer. The band, and myself in particular, get our hands dirty in creating the recording and this next round will be a continuation of that method. We actually can’t wait to get back to work on the new songs.”
