CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Drummer Remains In Hospital; Traverse City Show Canceled

The reunited classic "Animosity" lineup of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Mike Dean (bass, vocals), Woody Weatherman and Reed Mullin (drums) has canceled its scheduled appearance tonight (Sunday, July 24) at Ground Zero in Traverse City, Michigan with CLUTCH. The group states, "We are still in Pittsburgh waiting for our drummer to be released from the hospital. We're all wishing Reed a speedy recovery and hope we can resume the tour as soon as possible."

Regarding Reed's condition, the band says, "All we know is he fell out from the heat just before our show here in Pittsburgh. He's doing much better and we expect him to be released today, if all goes well."

(Note: CLUTCH's performance at Ground Zero in Traverse City is unaffected by CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's cancelation.)

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY previously canceled last night's (Saturday, July 23) appearance at The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan while Reed was "receiving medical attention."

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY entered the studio earlier in the year with longtime producer John Custer (1991's "Blind", 1994's "Deliverance", 1996's "Wiseblood", 2000's "America's Volume Dealer", 2005's "In The Arms Of God") to begin recording the band's new album for a late 2011 release.

In a recent interview with UGO, Dean stated about the forthcoming CD, "The title is yet to be determined. A self-titled release crossed our minds but the album title is a game-time decision. October is a good time but if we miss that, early 2012 would be a fine time for release. 'The Moneychangers', 'River Of Stone' and 'Rat City' are some of the [song]titles [that will appear on the CD]."

Speaking to Metal Kaoz, Dean described CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's new material as "familiar but surprising. All of the old influences are there hardcore, three generations of heavy rock and no rules as to how to combine them and make something new and creative."
