COC - Animosity

North Carolina's Corrosion of Conformity may be more known for their more doomy and Southern-influenced material, but in the 80s, they were a killer crossover machine. Animosity is a thrash classic in its own right, and some would argue that the band hasn't topped it since. Well, if you're one of those people, you're in luck! COC's Animosity era line up - Woody Weatherman on guitar, Mike Dean on vocals and bass, and Reed Mullin on drums - will be playing together again for a short west coast tour this August!

But who's opening, you ask? Not to worry: Goatsnake, Righteous Fool (which features Dean and Mullin), Eagle Twin, and Black Breath! And to make sure nobody gets off on the wrong foot, the tour begins at the Southern Lord sponsored The Power Of The Riff Festival in Los Angeles. Scheduled to play that fest, in addition to the bands just mentioned, are Repulsion, Trap Them, Nails, and From Ashes Rise. The full line up will be coming soon, but could we handle it? Those are all of our favorite bands right there! L.A., you are some lucky bros.
