Following a recent performance at the Fifth Annual Scion Fest in Memphis, Corrosion Of Conformity has announced live assaults for August. In addition to the already planned participation at Gwar’s annual BBQ, the trio will perform a headlining show in Wilmington, Delaware before heading to South America for a string of dates.

The August shows mark a break from continued work in the recording studio on the band’s new album, expected for release in early 2014.

“We need a little escape from the studio,” comments vocalist/bassist Mike Dean. “We thought it would be good to see the light of the day a little bit. We are excited to play Brazil, Peru, Columbia, and Argentina for the first time ever. Of course returning to Mexico City and playing Gwar’s BBQ will be highlights for our summer as well. The new material is sounding really good but it’s time to get the perspective provided only by playing in front of a live audience. And we are talking about some very live audiences in this case.”

Updates regarding progress of the band’s forthcoming album came during the band’s late April West Coast tour with Danzig. Dean said, “We have a lot of lyric writing to refine but a lot of solid musical arrangements are in place. We plan to begin basic tracking for half the songs as soon as we return to North Carolina.”

The initial work on the still-untitled album found the band not long out of the recording studio having recently completed the Scion/AV EP "Megalodon." The special EP was included free to all customers to the band’s official webstore and is still available as a free download by clicking here.

Dean notes, “The EP was written, recorded, and released in two months time. It really challenged us in a good way.”
