Founding Members Of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Launch RIGHTEOUS FOOL

Two founding members of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY (C.O.C.), Reed Mullin (drums, vocals) and Mike Dean (bass, vocals), have started a new band called RIGHTEOUS FOOL. Completed by guitarist Jason Browning from HR of BAD BRAINS' solo band, the trio's music contains "elements familiar to C.O.C. listeners, particularly hardcore punk, doom/stoner rock, as well as some prog-rock."

RIGHTEOUS FOOL will play limited dates starting in March, some of which will be alongside CORROSION OF CONFORMITY - BLIND, singer Karl Agell and Reed's project which pays tribute to the classic C.O.C. album "Blind" (1991). An EP is also in the works.

Mullin co-founded CORROSION OF CONFORMITY in 1982 as a hardcore punk act alongside guitarist Woody Weatherman and bassist Mike Dean before leaving the band in 2001 amidst health concerns.

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's latest album, "In the Arms of God", came out in 2005 on Sanctuary Records.
