It looks like we could be possibly getting some new music from CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in 2023
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY guitarist/vocalist Pepper Keenan recently sat down with Guitar World and was asked if there are any plans for the band to commence work on a follow-up to 2018’s “No Cross No Crown” album. Pepper responded: “Yes. We’re doing this next [U.S.] tour [in November], and then we’re going to start putting the pieces together and get our heads in ‘studio land’, and just focus on that.”
When asked if we could be getting the new CORROSION OF CONFORMITY record sometime in 2023, Pepper said: “Maybe. We take our time doing these things. The Covid thing put everything in a kibosh and we lost a lot of time and energy.
“The way C.O.C. does it, if it ain’t right, it’s wrong,” he explained. “We put our energy into it and try to create something that is up to our standards and try to push things as hard as we can in our world.”
Pepper also made note that he still loves the “No Cross No Crown” LP, saying: “It was a really fun experience to do and the last thing we did with Reed [Mullin, late CORROSION OF CONFORMITY drummer], unfortunately. So, it holds a special place in my heart. We’re very happy with it.”
Reed Mullin passed away in January of 2020 at the age of 53 after dealing with multiple health issues and substance abuse problems which kept him off the road with thew band.
