Former Corrosion of Conformity Vocalist Eric Eycke Dies

Former Corrosion of Conformity vocalist Eric Eycke has passed away. Eycke fronted the band on their 1984 debut album Eye for an Eye.

Corrosion of Conformity Statement:

We are sad to learn of the passing of one time COC vocalist Eric Eycke, who’s broad musical knowledge shaped the band’s early identity and who’s energy is evident on our first hardcore era album “Eye for an Eye”. This simply does not seem real. We traveled far and wide in a shitty van, blowing up stages together, trying to live up to the likes of The Bad Brains and Black Flag. RIP”

Yesterday the band Red Earth posted the following message:

We just heard the terrible news that Corrosion Of Conformity’s singer Eric Eycke is in the hospital. Eric sang on C.O.C.’s incredible first LP Eye For An Eye. Without C.O.C. there would be no Red Death, period. Wishing him and his family the best!
