CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Is 'Starting' To Think About Next Studio Album

At this past weekend's Heavy Montreal festival in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY guitarist Woody Weatherman spoke to The Metal Voice about the band's plans to write and record the follow-up to last year's "No Cross No Crown" album.

"'No Cross No Crown' came out in January [2018], so it's been out a year and a half," he said. "We're still on the road, and we've still got a little ways to go. But we're starting to ponder about the next one; we're thinking about it."

According to Woody, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY has not yet recorded any new music "but there's always riffs. The last record, we didn't have anything, really, before we went in the studio," he explained. "We wrote it and recorded it as we went along, and we may adopt that approach again. It's kind of fun, 'cause you go in the morning, and there's nothing, and at the end of the day, there's most of the song on tape. And you're, like, 'All right. We did something today. Cool.' It's kind of a fun way to do it."

Asked about a possible musical direction of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's next disc, Woody said: "We always do a little something different. If anybody follows CORROSION through the years, you can always kind of tell it's CORROSION, but we kind of veer off and challenge ourselves on stuff. But we're not gonna come out and be the JONAS BROTHERS."

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY kicked off the second leg of its North American headlining tour last week. The "A Quest To Believe, A Call To The Void II" tour commenced on July 26 in Poughkeepsie, New York and will run through August 25 in Providence, Rhode Island. Support is being provided by CROWBAR as well as LO-PAN and QUAKER CITY NIGHT HAWKS.

"No Cross No Crown" was recorded in North Carolina with longtime producer John Custer. The LP marked CORROSION OF CONFORMITY's first studio output with vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan in over a decade.
