CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and ORANGE GOBLIN announce co-headline tour!


Corrosion Of Conformity are stoked to announce that they‘ll be hitting the road this October/November on an eight date, co-headline UK run with celebrated London based Sabbath worshippers Orange Goblin. Completing a line-up overflowing with blues inspired, whiskey soaked riffs will be LA retro rock band Fireball Ministry and Leeds/London based stoner rockers Black Moth.

C.O.C. commented,
 "We are beyond excited to have the stars align in such a way that, with a new record out, we get to play UK dates with Orange Goblin, Fireball Ministry and Black Moth. This one is going to be memorable!"

Ben Ward from Orange Goblin commented,
 "We wanted to do something really special for our fans in the UK to celebrate the release of The Wolf Bites Back. We feel that this tour with the legendary Corrosion of Conformity, the awesome Fireball Ministry and our very good friends in Black Moth, is going to go down in history and we are proud to be a part of it. This tour will be the heaviest, dirtiest and loudest tour of 2018 and we can‘t wait to hit the road!"

Corrosion Of Conformity will be touring in honour of latest studio album No Cross No Crown, which was released in January 2018 to rapturous praise from fans and peers alike. Iconic guitarist and vocalist Pepper Keenan has returned to the fold, with No Cross No Crown arriving as C.O.C.'s first studio album to feature Keenan since 2005's In the Arms of God. 

No Cross No Crown somehow sounds as though no time has passed between 2005’s In The Arms Of God and today. Recording in North Carolina with longtime producer John Custer, C.O.C. cut No Cross No Crown in about forty days over the course of a year. Some of the new jams sound like they could've easily appeared on Wiseblood or Deliverance, two of C.O.C.’s most revered records. Beefy Southern stompers like 'The Luddite', 'Little Man' and 'Forgive Me' are interspersed with melancholy guitar interludes like 'No Cross', 'Matre’s Diem' and 'Sacred Isolation' - just like Sabbath used to do in the ’70s.
