Canada's hardcore/metal band CANCER BATS will embark on a U.S. tour with EVERY TIME I DIE and NORMA JEAN in May.
Commented CANCER BATS vocalist and resident EVERY TIME I DIE fan Liam Cormier: "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' brodown by the end! My only beef is that the tour is two weeks and not two years!"
CANCER BATS is coming off its highly successful Canadian tour with BILLY TALENT and AGAINST ME!, and is currently gearing up for its new release and Good Fight Music debut, "Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones", on April 13. CANCER BATS has 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.
