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.”
