MOTORHEAD - And CORROSION OF CONFORMITY Officially Announce Joint U.S. Tour
The immortal MOTÃ–RHEAD and mighty CORROSION OF CONFORMITY will hit the
road for a North American tour in spring 2005.
MOTÃ–RHEAD â€” celebrating its 30th anniversary this year with a third career
Grammy Award nomination â€” makes a triumphant return to these shores after
a 2004 fall tour was canceled due to an injury suffered by vocalist/bassist
Lemmy. At last, Lemmy, guitarist Philip Campbell and drummer Mikkey Dee
are able to perform on this continent to promote their Metal-Is/Sanctuary
Records release "Inferno". This remarkable album earned mountains of overwhelmingly
positive reviews. In fact, the Associated Press called "Inferno" the best
MOTÃ–RHEAD album ever.
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY are a fine band as everybody knows. Also, they must
be one of the few bands who have been going as long as MOTÃ–RHEAD! Still,
we'll give them a run for their money!" says Lemmy. "Glad to have those
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, also known as COC, will give audiences a tantalizing
taste of the blistering new Sanctuary Records album, "In The Arms of God",
which is scheduled for release on April 5, 2005. Vocalist/guitarist Pepper
Keenan, guitarist Woody Weatherman, bass guitarist Mike Dean and special
guest drummer Stanton Moore (best known as a member of GALACTIC) have recorded
an album of visceral power that's a worthy follow-up to 2000's "America's
Volume Dealer". Scheduling conflicts will prevent Moore from touring with
the band. Jason Patterson (CRY OF LOVE) will serve as COC's touring drummer.
Lemmy and MOTÃ–RHEAD are to heavy metal and our roots what Johnny Cash is
to country," says Keenan. "It's an honor and a privilege to deliver volume
on the same stage...now up the f%#kin' hammers! Not to mention we've got
the baddest skulls in heavy metal!"
MOTÃ–RHEAD will also be performing at World Wrestling Entertainment's WrestleMania
21 at Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA, on Sunday, April 3.
