Turns out he is, though, and we get a glimpse into that in a new photo shoot for Paper Magazine.

Corrosion of Conformity Rehearsing for a Tour With Their Deliverance Lineup [Video]

The Deliverance-era lineup of Corrosion of Conformity is back together, and prepping for a tour! Hopefully we'll get a new album, too!

The 3-piece early version of the band has been touring and recording again for the last few years, but the question that's probably been haunting them the whole time has been: "When are you going to do COC with Pepper again?"

The Nickelback "No Fixed Addess" tour rolled into the Van Andel arena last night, and I was pretty excited to see a full set from The Pretty Reckless opening the show! I'd seen a bit of their show last year at Rock on the Range, but didn't catch it all.
