After spending the past month igniting stages across Europe with BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE and ATREYU, the CANCER BATS return home this summer to bring their mountainous grooves and explosive blend of punk and metal to venues across Canada.
Since releasing their third studio album, "Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones", in April, the Juno-nominated CANCER BATS have graced the pages of Eye Weekly, Revolver, Kerrang!, Alternative Press, and countless other top-tier publications across the globe. They tore up the stage in front of 40,000 people at Download festival, raged with the crowds of over 150,000 at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany and played alongside heavyweights EVERY TIME I DIE, BILLY TALENT, ALEXISONFIRE and NORMA JEAN. The CANCER BATS recently had a song featured in Canadian sci-fi thriller "Splice" starring Sarah Polley, which hit theatres June 4, and was inducted into the "Rock Band" song network, with four of their tracks now available to download for PS3 and Xbox.
Before heading to the West Coast to begin their tour across Canada, the CANCER BATS will perform at the 2010 S.C.E.N.E Music Festival in St. Catharines and will be part of the brand new "Cool Tour", which will be hitting cities across the U.S. in July. In association with Metal Blade Records, Atticus Black by Atticus Clothing, and Musician's Institute College of Contemporary Music, the "Cool Tour" features AS I LAY DYING, UNDEROATH, ARCHITECTS, and many more. The tour has one Canadian stop in Toronto.
