CORROSION OF CONFORMITY - release cover of 'On The Hunt' by Lynyrd Skynyrd!
American heavy-riff devotees Corrosion Of Conformity have released a cover of the Lynyrd Skynyrd track 'On The Hunt', taken from the illustrious Southern Rock band's third studio album Nuthin' Fancy, released in 1975. This cover version brings a singular C.O.C. swagger and sludge-laden groove to the classic track.
This 'On The Hunt' cover lands shortly before C.O.C. kick-off their forthcoming three week tour across the UK and Europe, set to include performances at Desertfest London, Desertfest Berlin, and Soulstone Gathering in Krakow.
Corrosion Of Conformity's Mike Dean commented, “This is our hard to find tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd, a major influence of COC. With the recent passing of the great Gary Rossington, the last living original member of Lynyrd Skynyrd , we thought it would be a good time to make this celebration of Skynyrd more widely available.”
Corrosion Of Conformity are currently working on new material with New Orleans drummer Stanton Moore, for an eventual new release on Nuclear Blast.
