The Sludgelord News: CORROSION OF CONFORMITY to headline the Friday at DESERTFEST LONDON 2016!


It is with great excitement that we're revealing the second headliner to walk the DESERTFEST LONDON stage next April 29th in Camden, with America's coolest volume dealers CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and no one but their historical frontman Pepper Keenan at the helm! Icing on this greasy cake: their sludgy brothers in arms CROWBAR will co-headline the night, for a "southern special" Friday at Desertfest!

UK's forerunner stoner/doom/psyche gathering DESERTFEST couldn't reach the milestone of their 5th edition without having cult acts on the bill. And who could open this special weekend better than one of America's most inspiring and outstanding bands of musicians in heavy music, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, reuniting with their iconic guitarist and frontman Pepper Keenan (also well-known for founding leading southern metal unit Down). With the recent news of COC's signing on Nuclear Blast Records and recording of a new album due out in the fall of 2016, there is no doubt that this fifth Desertfest London will go down in history

As previously announced and to make it even more special, NOLA's sludge metal heroes CROWBAR will co-headline the Friday along with COC, bringing their influential slow-and-low sound to the masses. Once again this is a first, as Kirk Windstein and his crew of titans have never played any Desertfest before. A night dedicated to US sludge and rock heavyweights!
