CANCER BATS are pleased to announce their upcoming U.S. tour with Every Time I Die and Norma Jean! When asked to comment on the tour announcement, CANCER BATS vocalist and resident Every Time I Die fan Liam Cormier stated, “Duh! Obviously, I’m stoked on this! It’s Every Time I Die and Norma Jean! But, in all sincerity, we can’t wait to go back out with Every Time I Die again, especially now that their beat keeper is a fellow Canadian! It just makes this tour that much sweeter. We don’t know the Norma Jean dudes yet but I’m sure this whole thing is going to be a big ol’ bro down by the end! My only beef is that the tour is 2 weeks and not 2 years!”

CANCER BATS are coming fresh off their highly successful Canadian tour with Billy Talent and Against Me!, and are currently gearing up for their new release and Good Fight Music debut, Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones on April 13th. CANCER BATS have also released a digital EP containingScared to Death’ and their take on the Beastie Boys’ classic, Sabotage’. The EP is available on iTunes right now! If you have not seen the video for ‘Sabotage’ yet, make sure to head over to http://www.cancerbats.com/sabotage and check it out today!

Droning On

The world came to a halt in 2020, but London-based Drones trudged on, giving a voice to the hurt that circulates with (or without) a pandemic: "You shouldn’t underestimate the power of writing things down or literally speaking them out loud, which I’m learning. I’m glad I made these songs, no matter how personal they are."
