Never miss another 'Cancer Bats' show
Cancer Bats + Brutality Will Prevail + Empress
Following their support slot on Enter Shikari's recent tour, Canada's favourite good-time metallers will be returning to the UK for a mammoth headline tour of their own in March 2013.
The band will also be marking this event with a re-release of 'Dead Set On Living'. This deluxe edition will include three unheard tracks and the Bat Sabbath EP, which features studio recorded songs from their infamous Bat Sabbath set, first performed at Sonisphere 2011. This release will be available digitally and there will be a limited run of double CDs.
A heavy, destructive, powerful explosion of southern metal, hardcore and punk rock. Their first release in 2005 saw the band touring across North America and today, only a few years later, they tour worldwide. A ferocious act, Cancer Bats have only one message and one mission: 'destroy'.
Cancer Bats tour dates
A five piece, 'down tempo' hardcore band from Wales.
Brutality Will Prevail tour dates
Soothing and vicious in turn, Empress juxtapose gentle harmonies with frantic ferocity; relaxed strumming followed by thrashy beats, time signature changes and other interesting meanderings.
There are as many elements of metallers Mastodon, Metallica and Opeth in the music as there are of the more melodic Pink Floyd, King Crimson and Elbow.
However, the four piece band also cites more recent but no less prominent influences such as the now-defunct Surrey rockers Reuben and American post-hardcore pioneers Underoath and Thrice.
