Corrosion of Conformity - August 24 - Club Red

This North Carolina-bred, punk-turned-hardcore-turned sludge metal band has been tearing through stages since the early '80s with a somewhat consistent lineup of the original members. When they put out their 1985 album Animosity, it was an important time for the thrash/punk crossover movement, and COC was at the forefront. This tour is all about embodying that time, energy and lineup, even though drummer Reed Mullin was forced to recently pull out due to a torn rotator cuff. However, Kylesa's former drummer Eric Hernandez is stepping in and you'll still hear all the classics such as "Albatross" and "Loss for Words," as well as content from the band's new album, IX, which was released July 1. --Lauren Wise
