CORROSION OF CONFORMTIY Drummer To Undergo Surgery; Miss Dates

Friday, 5th September 2014

According to a post on his Facebook page, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY drummer Reed Mullin will undergo surgery this morning to fix his “massive full thickness tear of the supraspinatus with retraction of the tendon to the glenoid — a large joint effusion.”

As a result of his torn rotator cuff, Mullin was forced to sit out some of CORROSION OF CONFORMITY’s recent live dates. Filling in for him was Eric Hernandez, formerly of KYLESA. CORROSION OF CONFORMITY explained: “Eric came to our attention when we approached Rick Smith of TORCHE about filling in and he recommended Eric, who he grew up with in Miami. Eric has also filled in for Ricky in TORCHE a few times with great results. He is, like Reed, a hard hitter, and thankfully possesses the capacity to learn and digest detailed material quickly and accurately.”

CORROSION OF CONFORMITY’s two-week North American run kicked off on August 20 in Spokane and came to a close on September 1 in Vancouver. The band was joined by BL’AST!, BRANT BJORK & THE LOW DESERT PUNK BAND and LORD DYING.

The band’s newest album, IX, was released in July via Candelight Records.
