CANCER BATS: Performance Footage Of New Song Available

Video footage of Toronto, Canada's hardcore/metal band CANCER BATS performing a new song called "Darkness" on October 25, 2009 at Olympia Theatre in Dublin, Ireland can be viewed below.

CANCER BATS has set "Bears, Mayors, Scraps And Bones" as the title of its new album, tentatively due in early 2010. Vocalist Liam Cormier recently told U.K.'s Rock Sound magazine, "I need to make sure everyone gives it the thumbs up, but I got the album title in a dream probably three or four days while I was listening to SMASHING PUMPKINS while I was going to sleep. I mean the title has nothing to do with SMASHING PUMPKINS but it's sleeping music and in the middle of my dream I woke up and thought of the record title and texted it to Mike (Peters, drums)."

Liam previously told Rock Sound the new CD — which is currently being recorded in Canada — would sound like "Glenn Danzig going on a camping trip with BLACK FLAG's Greg Ginn, a reanimated Vincent Price and the BEASTIE BOYS. It will sound like those people sat round a campfire telling ghost stories."

Liam added, "I think the record, in our opinion, sounds like biker metal or driving music so maybe this record is now more if we were driving to the camp with DANZIG and BEASTIE BOYS!"

CANCER BATS's sophomore full-length CD, "Hail Destroyer", came out last year via Black Market Activities. The album was co-produced by Eric Ratz (BIG SUGAR, THEORY OF A DEAD MAN, BILLY TALENT), Kenny Luong (BILLY TALENT), and Greg Below (ALEXISONFIRE) and recorded at Vespa Studios.
