It looks like Corrosion Of Conformity will be releasing their new album in January. They posted the following:
Former Corrosion Of Conformity singer, Eric Eyck has sadly passed away. The vocalist sang on the band’s debut album “Eye For An Eye.” R.I.P.
Corrosion Of Conformity commented:
“We are saddened to learn of the passing of one time COC vocalist Eric Eycke, who’s broad musical knowledge shaped the band’s early identity and who’s energy is evident on our first hardcore era album “Eye for an Eye”. This simply does not seem real. We traveled far and wide in a shitty van,blowing up stages together, trying to live up to the likes of The Bad Brains and Black Flag.”

Corrosion Of Conformity’s Reed Mullin was recently left behind on the band’s current tour, after having a seizure due to “extreme and unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption.” Despite this, the band have apparently welcomed him back:
Twist of plot: Reed showed up today in Winnipeg and played well, against advice. We’re glad he’s still with us. One day at a time and hopefully some big changes.
Corrosion Of Conformity’s Reed Mullin has been sent home from the band’s current tour, due to substance abuse issues. The drummer’s “extreme and unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption” resulted in him having a seizure right before the band’s Edmonton, AB show last night (June 5).
The band issued the following statement:
“Last night In Edmonton, Alberta, COC drummer, Reed Mullin,had a seizure just as we were about to take the stage. This was preceded by prolonged, extreme and unhealthy levels of alcohol consumption, not taking care of himself and who-knows-what else. Reed has been unwell for awhile and we are praying he gets the help he needs and that he seek treatment for alcohol and drug dependency, not to mention general lifestyle assistance.
This tragic event echoes a nearly identical incident In Pttsburgh a few years back, where Reed had a seizure just before taking the stage when the 3 piece version of the band were also opening for Clutch. Both instances were preceded by concerns about Reed‘s well being and appearance.That incident resulted in five canceled shows.
So years of assurances go by and we come full circle back to the same avoidable tragedy. This time we are leaving Reed with the medical experts in Edmonton and pressing on w the help of Jean Paul Gaster and Chris Adler, who quickly learned some songs. The show went on and will go on but we will not enable Reed to continue killing himself on our watch.
Again we ask everyone for prayers for Reed and understanding for our predicament. All the best to everyone and Reed get help,”- with a heavy heart, Mike Dean”
