a1559027714_2North Carolina’s Corrosion of Conformity has just released a new music video for the song “On Your Way,” which is available on the band’s “IX” album released earlier this summer.  Their most recent album was produced by the band and longtime partner in crime John Custer, and available via Candlelight.


Commenting on the band’s relationship in the studio with Custer, bassist Mike Dean stated that “Originally, John had a very specific idea in mind about certain parts, going back to ‘Blind’ and ‘Deliverance’, and now he’s more about letting the performance happen and seeing where it goes, and like ourselves, he’s reached a point with the over-emphasis on perfection that just makes a lot of today’s music really boring and really makes you kind of smell a rat. Basically, we’re kind of about a performance that has some emotion to it. When the performance gets too perfect via the computer, you start to smell a rat, and you start to wonder if the can play any of it. [Laughs] It’s just not where we’re coming from. He’s right there with us on that. It’s been good, the way things have evolved working with him. It’s something that, while we’ve had this relationship for a while, it’s a way to keep it fresh.”
