The band originated in May 2004 with singer Liam Cormier and guitarist Scott Middleton, former member of Toronto metal band At Mercy Of Inspiration. The two wanted to form a project that combined their favorite parts of bands like Refused, Black Flag, Led Zeppelin and Down, among others. The line-up was rounded out with the addition of Andrew McCracken on bass and Mike Peters on drums.
When the hellacious buzz about the Cancer Bats fuelling across North America, the band unleashed its highly anticipated debut album Birthing the Giant on the most evil day in history 06/06/06, on Distort Inc. Produced by award winning Canadian producer Gavin Brown the album featured bold, infectious riffage that peaked the interest of audiences and press across the globe. With critical acclaim resonating from all sides of the planet, the year following the debut release saw the Cancer Bats fly to the top of the Hardcore Punk scene. From signing licensing deals with Hassle in the UK and Shock in Australia, to winning the Favourite Hardcore/Metal Group of the Year at the 2007 Indie Awards and Best Independent Video at the 2007 MuchMusic Video Awards, the world has started to take notice of Canada s favourite flying mammals.
2010 is looming large for Cancer Bats and the band is already off to a fuel throttled start. They guys recently recorded a brand new album entitled Bears, Mayors, Scrapes and Bones . The 14 track ensemble of whisky soaked riffs, focused aggression, and well placed hooks is the bands biggest and boldest work to date. The final track of the album is a blistering rendition of the Beastie Boy s Sabotage . The band filmed a raucous and hilarious homage to the 3 emcees from NYC, which is the perfect complement to the hard hitting track. While the Sabotage video is guaranteed to act as an open invitation to many a new fan across the globe it is the Cancer Bats trademark hybrid sound of punk infused stoner metal that will hook them in for life. Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones is set to pounce the US through Good Fight Music on Tuesday April 13th.
