Down and Corrosion of Conformity to hit the studio, says Pepper Keenan

Posted by on July 29, 2015

In a recent interview with Loudwire, guitarist Pepper Keenan was asked about him actively taking part of Corrosion of Conformity, bringing up the last album recorded with him In The Arms of God:

Oh man, I remember when we were done with it and I was like “That’s as good as I can do it.” [Laughs]  It couldn’t get any better than that, for me. It was the pinnacle of songwriting and production; I think we nailed it on the head. I was really proud of it even though it was under such crazy pretenses. It ended up turning out great and I knew close to the end it was going to be something I was super proud of.

With the exciting news, it’s obvious to think that we may get a new CoC album with him again and this is what he says:

Yeah we got some ideas, just playing again has put us back in the groove. What we’re doing live has kind of been freaking people out. It’s been awesome. My catalyst is going to be shooting from where we left off on In the Arms of God and that’s a huge, tall order. We don’t take it lightly and we know what we’re up against, we just have to go at it.

Keenan has been completely busy all these years with Down and we can’t expect for that change much as he explains when asked about his future plans for the rest of the year:

Oh man, I’m busier than shit. We start off with this Motorboat Cruise, Corrosion Of Conformity starts a couple weeks later with festivals in the U.S. Down are doing some shows prior to that in August with some festivals and solo shows. Then we got to get ready to work on the next Down EP. I’m pretty much slammed all the way to Christmas at this point.
