Toronto’s CANCER BATS are ready and set to head out on the road with EVERY TIME I DIE and NORMA JEAN this coming Tuesday, May 11th! The tour kicks off in Columbus, OH, and comes to an end in Wilmington, NC on May 25th. “I’m going to officially rename May, “Buffaledo Month”, because we’re basically playing shows with Buffalo, NY giants SNAPCASE on the 8th, adding some icing on the cake with a Toledo show on the 10th, and then touring with Every Time I Die,” states CANCER BATS vocalist Liam Cormier. “This shit is going to be awesome! This May, we’ll just wear Sabres jerseys and Blue Jackets sweats every day and watch Buffalo 66 every night before bed. I can’t wait!”

Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones hit stores on April 13th, and is receiving a plethora of critical praise. Alternative Press Magazine’s May 2010 issue review of Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones brings attention to CANCER BATS’ impressive talent and writing skill. “…Toronto’s CANCER BATS are adept at stripping the fat from their influences and dealing strictly in the reddest, juiciest of meat.” Absolute Punk has also offered amazing praise towards Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones. “When your last record was a huge success, it’s only natural to go into the studio and want to make your next one better. That’s exactly what CANCER BATS did and unlike some bands, they actually succeeded.”

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
