CANCER BATS Begins Work On New Material
Canadian metallers CANCER BATS have commenced the songwriting process for their fourth album, tentatively due in 2012. More information will be made available soon.
CANCER BATS was nominated in the "Rock Album of the Year" category at the 2011 Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards). The band faced off against fellow Canadians DIE MANNEQUIN, FINGER ELEVEN, HAIL THE VILLIAN and MATTHEW GOOD.
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, 2010 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.
