It appeared that Corrosion of Conformity would be without the services of drummer Reed Mullin for a while after he suffered a seizure after consuming large amounts of alcohol on June 5 before the band’s show in Edmonton, Alberta.

Corrosion of Conformity’s Mike Dean posted a statement saying that they left Mullin behind in the hospital in Edmonton and that, “We will not enable Reed to continue killing himself on our watch.” The statement also said, “Reed has been unwell for awhile and we are praying he gets the help he needs and that he seek treatment for alcohol and drug dependency, not to mention general lifestyle assistance.”

They had Chris Adler and Jean Paul Gaster from tourmates Lamb of God and Clutch fill in at the Edmonton show and were ready to continue to utilize their services, but Mullin unexpectedly returned to the band in Winnipeg for the last date of the Lamb of God run.

The band posted a photo on Facebook of Mullin that said, “Twist of plot: Reed showed up today in Winnipeg and played well, against advice. We’re glad he’s still with us. One day at a time and hopefully some big changes.”

COC’s next show is June 10 in Fort Wayne, Indiana with Clutch, and they are on the bill for Amnesia Rockfest in Montebello, Quebec on June 25.
