A torn rotator cuff will keep Corrosion of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin from touring with the band.
He’ll have to sit out the upcoming gigs.
Says the band:
“We are sorry to announce that Reed Mullin will not be onboard for this tour. He’s been playing through pain, awaiting a strategic time to repair a full tear of his rotator cuff. That’s a seriously bum shoulder. So he’s going to get that repaired and rehabbed. During the interim, we’re enlisted Mr. Eric Hernandez formerly of Kylesa to help us until then. Eric came to our attention when we approached Rick Smith of Torche about filling in and he recommended Eric, who he grew up with in Miami. Eric has also filled in for Ricky in Torche a few times with great results. He is, like Reed, a hard hitter, and thankfully possesses the capacity to learn and digest detailed material quickly and accurately.”
The band have a two-week North American run scheduled to commence August 20 in Spokane, Washington, with Bl’ast!, Brant Bjork & The Low Desert Punk Band and Lord Dying.
