CANCER BATS – “Beelzebub” video

1 min read

The new CANCER BATS video comes as a precursor to the band’s North American dates set to commence next week including a run with DANZIG and PENNYWISE!

Vocalist Liam Cormier comments: “We’re so excited to be heading out with Danzig and Pennywise. Both bands have been our favorites since we first got into punk and metal so to have a chance to tour with both is like a dream come true! We’ll be ripping the pit and headbanging until we puke every night!”
In the meantime, previously released CANCER BATS videos for the “Arsenic In The Year Of The Snake,” “Satellites,” and “True Zero” are currently streaming now Fans in the US can order copies of Searching For Zero now

During the summer of 2014, Toronto’s CANCER BATS spent several weeks with legendary multi-platinum producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive-In, Slipknot, The Cure, Sepultura, Glassjaw) at his studio in Venice, California. The Canadian act was pulled out of their normal, more winter-y element to the beaches of California for the tracking ofSearching For Zero. Robinson and the band shared a singular vision to create a personal, vibrant album and the results are apparent. The beloved multiple-JUNO nominated hardcore punk metal band’s fifth studio album features ten tracks that are simultaneously the most melodic, yet menacing CANCER BATS tunes compositions to date. The record incorporates the crude hardcore punk of their 2006 debut, Birthing The Giant, and the more metal leanings of 2008’s Hail Destroyer, while pushing the heavy hybrid sounds of 2010’s Mayors Bears Scraps And Bones and 2012’s darker Dead Set On Living to a new plateau. The choruses are hookier, the screams more savage, the riffs more vicious, the songs more powerful. This is CANCER BATS at their pinnacle – their “True Zero.”
