Canadian punk/metal/hardcore band CANCER BATS and Absolute Punk have posted the second episode of "Cancer Bats World Wide Wacky Webisodes" featuring footage from the group's trip to Japan. The guys shop for some interesting-looking, hangover-curing medicine at a drugstore, take a ride on a 180mph bullet train, and perform a blistering set. Watch the clip below.
CANCER BATS's third studio album, "Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones", sold around 600 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 95 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
"Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones" was made available on April 13 via Good Fight Music. CANCER BATS also released a digital EP containing "Scared to Death" and its take on the BEASTIE BOYS classic "Sabotage". The EP is available on iTunes right now.
Since releasing "Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones", the Juno-nominated CANCER BATS has 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.
