Two-time JUNO-nominated Cancer Bats will be playing a show in Fernie next week. The tour is in support of their highly anticipated fourth album ‘Dead Set On Living.’

Since first turning heads with 2006’s Birthing The Giant, Cancer Bats, made up of Liam Cormier (vocals), Scott Middleton (Guitar), Mike Peters (drums) and Jaye Schwarzer (bass) are one of the hardest working bands in the music industry. The band spent close to 300 days away from home in 2011, and will likely come close to that in 2012. Nominated for two JUNO awards for ‘Rock Album Of The Year’ in 2011 and ‘New Group Of The Year’ in 2009, Cancer Bats have earned a slew of awards and accolades, graced the pages of countless high-profile publications, and shared club and festival stages with the likes of Billy Talent, Bring Me The Horizon, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Rise Against.

Their new album is undeniably the most metal-tinged offering the band has released to date, bringing yet another dimension to the Bats’ signature sound.

“We really strived for that raw, off-the-floor vibe this time around,” said Cancer Bats vocalist Liam Cormier. “It’s really the bridge between our live show and what we put on record.

“We’ve been very lucky to experiment as much as we have. I love that we can have thrash songs, hardcore songs, and the more Queens of the Stone Age or Kyuss kind of groove-based tunes.”

Check out The Cancer Bats on Monday, April 2 at the Northern Bar and Stage, Fernie.
