CORROSION OF CONFORMITY have announced a brand new album!
The album, titled No Cross Crown, is the band’s first album in 12 years with vocalist and guitarist Pepper Keenan. Speaking about rejoining the band and what to expect from the upcoming album, Pepper Keenan says, “Reed called me and mentioned maybe playing a couple shows. I said, ‘Let’s just go to Europe and see if it works.’ So we went to Europe and then ended up going back four times in one year… We toured for a year and then started tracking about ten or eleven months ago. We took our time and didn’t put any pressure on ourselves. I’d go up from New Orleans and we’d do four or five days at a time, just hacking away at it. It was fun because we did it like a demo, but in a studio. We were writing and putting it on tape at the same time. We took what parts we thought were great from the old days and weren’t scared to go backwards. It kinda wrote itself that way. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and the prior records I’ve done with them didn’t just go away. It’s an honour to be back out there and have an opportunity to do it again in a real way and not some washed-up reunion thing. Even before we wrote the record, we were out there for a year seeing there was a demand for it and that there was a void that we could fill. That’s been CORROSION OF CONFORMITY’s deal from day one. We’re not chasing anybody around. We’re not gonna worry about what the new trends are. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY is CORROSION OF CONFORMITY.”
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have also released the first single, Cast The First Stone.
