Righteous Fool, a side project of late Corrosion of Conformity drummer Reed Mullin, have put out “Low Blow,” a previously unreleased song with Mullin on the mic.
Righteous Fool consisted of Mullin, guitarist Jason Browning and Corrosion of Conformity bassist Mike Dean. The song, which showcases Mullin’s gritty vocals, was recorded in Dave Grohl’s Studio 606. Righteous Fool recorded enough songs to fill an album during their time at the Foo Fighters frontman’s studio, according to Rolling Stone.
“Reed was talking to Jason a few weeks before he passed away and mentioned a song called ‘Low Blow’ that he regretted not releasing,” Dean said in a statement. “It was the standout for sure and really showed his potential as a singer.”
Mullin passed away late last month at the age of 53. Corrosion of Conformity confirmed his death on their social media accounts. “Reed you are loved and always will be,” they wrote. No cause or date of death was given.
Aside from his vocal contributions to Righteous Fool, Mullin also tracked half of the vocals for Corrosion of Conformity’s 1985 LP Animosity. The drummer also contributed to the band’s 2018 record, No Cross No Crown, despite not joining the band on tour.
