Cancer Bats are an Canadian hardcore punk band hailing from Toronto, Ontario. Forming in 2004, the band consists of frontman Liam Cormier and guitarist Scott Middleton - both former At the Mercy of Inspiration members - as well as drummer Mike Peters and bassist Jaye R. Schwarzer.
Releasing in their debut album ‘Birthing the Giant’ in 2006, the band began making a name for themselves around their home-country, and toured with the likes of Billy Talent and Alexisonfire.
They’ve since released three more records, breaking into the UK Albums chart at #36 in 2010 with ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones', and again with their next record, ‘Dead Set On Living’. They returned in 2015 with a fifth LP, 'Search for a Zero', in March, supporting it with touring alongside While She Sleeps in April.
Cancer Bats had a busy 2018! They marked the 10 year anniversary of ‘Hail Destroyer’ with a four night residency at London’s Underworld in April, followed by a surprise release of new album 'The Spark That Moves', with accompanying album launch shows.
After a co-headline tour with Anti-Flag in autumn 2018, Cancer Bats have now announced a huge headline tour of the UK and Europe for early 2019. Catch them live by checking out the tour dates and concert ticket information below on Stereoboard.
