After spending the past month igniting stages across Europe with Bullet For My Valentine and Atreyu, the CANCER BATS return home this summer to bring their mountainous grooves and explosive blend of punk and metal to venues across Canada.
Before heading to the west coast to begin their tour across Canada, the CANCER BATS will perform at the 2010 S.C.E.N.E Music Festival in St. Catharines and will be part of the brand new “COOL TOUR” which will be hitting cities across the US in July. In association with Metal Blade Records, Atticus Black by Atticus Clothing, and Musician’s Institute College of Contemporary Music, the “COOL TOUR” features As I Lay Dying, Underoath, Architects, and many more. The tour has one Canadian stop in Toronto.

Since releasing their third studio album Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones in April, the Juno nominated CANCER BATS have graced the pages of Eye Weekly, Revolver, Kerrang!, Alternative Press, and countless other top-tier publications across the globe. They tore up the stage in front of 40,000 people at Download Festival, raged with the crowds of over 150,000 at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany and played alongside heavyweights Every Time I Die, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and Norma Jean. The CANCER BATS recently had a song featured in Canadian Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Splice’ starring Sarah Polley, which hit theatres June 4th and were inducted into the rock band song network, with four of their tracks now available to download
for PS3 and XBOX.
“When you see the Cancer Bats’ new songs being played in front of 40,000 maniacs in the bright Download sunshine, you have the right ingredients for one of the best sets of the weekend thus far…Dropping their cover of the Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ like an atom bomb and ending with the punishing ‘Sleep This Away’, the Bats turn Donington park into their own beer-swilling, bring-a-keg party zone. Whose house is this? The motherf**king Cancer Bats’ house!”
