Mike Dean gives update on new Corrosion of Conformity album, hints at February 27 release date

Full Metal Jackie recently sat down for an interview with Corrosion of Conformity bassist/vocalist Mike Dean, who talks about the band’s reunion, the differences in lineups with three or four members, opening up for Danzig and while he talks about their upcoming album, he hints at a February 27 (or 28) release date. He was also asked about the current status of the album:

“We’re still finishing up the mixes. We have a couple days left in the studio and we’re listening to things in the rented mini van and saying, “No, the guitar must be louder, everything must be louder than everything else,” and, you know, just making a few adjustments, and we’re pretty pleased with the results.”

Corrosion of Conformity’s new album is the follow-up to 2005’s In the Arms of God and will mark their first release on their new label Candlelight Records. Prior to the album’s release, they will be playing five shows in the East Coast next month. You can find all the dates and locations here.

Corrosion of Conformity sign to Candlelight Records, finishing work on new album

Corrosion of Conformity, who used to be a punk band back in the 80’s before changing their style to heavy metal, have announced that they have inked a worldwide deal with Candlelight Records. Steve Beatty of the label comments on the signing,

“‘Animosity’ is one of my favorite records ever. To have C.O.C. on Candlelight with that lineup is simply mouth-watering. I saw the band in London recently and they did not disappoint. This hungry child can’t wait for the record.”

Edward Christie (who also works for Candlelight) adds, “We are extremely excited to welcome the band to the label and are looking forward to an amazing album. We are all huge fans and this is truly a memorable day for all of us.”

C.O.C. have also been in the studio completing a new album with longtime collaborator John Custer, who produced their last five albums, starting with 1991’s Blind. Their last full-length studio album, In the Arms of God, came out in 2005 on Sanctuary Records.
