Corrosion Of Conformity - Drummer To Sit Out Live Dates

Due to a torn rotator cuff, Corrosion Of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin has been forced to sit out the band's upcoming live dates. Drummer Eric Hernandez (formerly of Kylesa) will perform with the band and replace Mullin while he recovers. The stoner metal trio is currently leveling the stages of New Zealand and Australia which will be followed by a two-week North American run scheduled to commence in Spokane.

The official statement from the band: "We are sorry to announce that Reed Mullin will not be onboard for this tour. He's been playing through pain, awaiting a strategic time to repair a full tear of his rotator cuff. That's a seriously bum shoulder. So he's going to get that repaired and rehabbed. During the interim, we're enlisted Mr. Eric Hernandez formerly of Kylesa to help us until then. 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."

That's a good replacement for the tour and that band lineup is pretty sweet.

I've seperated my right shoulder 6 times... twice surfing, once snowboarding, three times in ice hockey... I can still play but it is holding on by a few threads of tissue so it'll probably tear right off one of these days and the arm will fall out my tshirt sleeve... metal? I saw COC once before long ago at the the Galaxy Theatre in Santa Ana, California of all places. Looking forward to see what they can do now.
