Corrosion of Conformity and Crowbar
It doesn’t seem like hard rockers Corrosion of Conformity have been around for over 35 years, but when you look at their prodigious list of former band members, you realize there have been a lot of different groups churning out chops under that moniker. Guitarist Woody Weatherman is the only founding member who’ll be onstage at Brick By Brick on January 26, but longtime singer-guitarist Pepper Keenan (in the lineup off and on since 1989 and considered a pivotal, if not founding, player) will be part of the ensemble touring in support of their tenth studio album, No Cross No Crown, released earlier this year. Their first full-length with Keenan since 2010 (he’s been busy with Down) has seen them earn their highest chart positions in years, including number 67 on the U.S. Billboard 200 chart. Decibel just declared it one of the Top 40 Albums of 2018, and Midnight Hour placed them atop its own year-end list of Bands Whose Reunions Were Actually Worth Waiting For. The multigenerational bill includes Crowbar (celebrating their 30th year), Weedeater (a band with just over a decade of history), and Texas hard rockers Mothership, who released their debut album in 2013.
