Who is ready for Cancer Bats new tour?

Posted by Morgan Y Evans - Walking Bombs on Friday, March 6, 2015 at 10:37 AM (PST)


Cancer Bats have matured in a great way. While some people think they’ve gotten a bit softer (same complaint leveled at Gaslight Anthem on their still deeply excellent Get Hurt ), Cancer Bats are a band like Coliseum where the intensity rarely matters because whatever volume they attack at it is always about good songwriting first and foremost. I think recent tune “Satellites”  is about the best rough around the edges sing along punk tune I’ve heard yet in 2015. This is rock n roll as hell. Not to mention Mew’s cold Euro-prog song “Satellites” is amazing as well! I guess that’s what it takes to write a banger (shout out to P.O.D. “Satellite”). I have to go now.

Cancer Bats are super fierce, passionate and able to write material with a range of emotions.  Dead Set On Living was a modern classic more people should check out.

Now the boys are back in town with Searching For Zero to street in March of next year via Metal Blade. Produced by Ross Robinson (Korn, Glassjaw, Sepultura) , the lyric video for the diabolical “Arsenic In The Year Of The Snake” totally crushes and can be seen below.

Fans can order now at North American tour dates for 2015 are being scheduled and will be announced soon!

Cancer Bats announce release date for new album “Dead Set On Living”

Posted by metalrocker on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 5:41 PM (PST)

Canadian metal band Cancer Bats will release their fourth full-length album “Dead Set On Living,” on April 24, 2012 via Metal Blade Records in North America. “Dead Set On Living” is once again utilizing the legendary Vespa Studios and producers Eric Ratz and Kenny Luong. The brand new video for the first single, “Old Blood,” can be seen here. US tour dates to be announced soon.

Says  frontman Liam Joseph Cormier, “Were so stoked to be back in the Metal Blade family! We got to know so many amazing people at the label when we were a part of Black Market Activities and now it’s so rad that were part of the Metal Blade Roster! So many awesome people work at the label and they put out so many sweet bands, I couldn’t me more stoked”

Cormier adds: “We really strived for that raw, off-the-floor vibe this time around, it’s really the bridge between our live show and what we put on record… We’ve been very lucky to experiment as much as we have, I love that we can have thrash songs, hardcore songs, and the more Queens of the Stone Age or Kyuss kind of groove-based tunes.”

Thematically, the album offers a strong focus on the bilateral relationship of dark and light, destruction and construction, life and death. The title track, for example, refers to a close friend of the band who ended up in the hospital in serious condition; only to have the experience cement his will to survive. “Road Sick,” as the title may imply, finds Cormier struggling with the hardships that come with a career spent on the road. “Our lives are all about touring, but that song is more universal,” Cormier reveals. “It’s really for anyone away from their loved ones, dealing with that situation.”

Still, whereas 2010’s Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones had a much darker tinge, DSOL strikes a tighter balance between the opposing forces and brings listeners closer to the light at the end of the tunnel by encouraging them to push through peril. “We all reach these dark places where we feel angry or alone,” says the singer, “but that gives us a reason to pick ourselves up and strive to make something better.”

The Cancer Bats have also recently revealed to fans that on April 21, 2012 in London, UK, they would play six shows in five different venues, all within the space of 24 hours. Dubbed the ‘Pentagram’ tour (the location of the venues when joined together form the shape of a pentagram), all six shows sold out in the first week. A spring cross-Canada tour in support of DSOL is in the works, with dates to be announced soon.

America’s Grammys = Canada’s Junos. Canada’s resident metalcore up and comers Cancer Bats‘ third album “Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones” has jettisoned them further up the ladder as they become more and more recognized on the world’s stage.  This is their second Juno nomination. In 2009, they were nominated (but lost) for New Group of the Year.

Currently, they are out on the road with Baptized in Blood and Devildriver. This announcement came as a surprise this morning after their commute from Thunder Bay to Toronto. “I can’t think of better news to finish off a 17 hour drive,” states vocalist Liam Cormier.

“Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones” is available anywhere awesome records are sold and is released from Distort Entertainment.
