Genre Hardcore
Country Canada
Played at GMM 2012 2018

Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Cancer Bats’ music blends hardcore, punk rock and southern rock. In 2011 they toured Europe in support of their third album ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’. The following year they embarked on a one-day tour of the British capital to promote their ‘Dead Set on Living’ album, with six venues laid out in the shape of a pentagram. A few months later they made their first GMM appearance. 2015’s ‘Searching for Zero (2015) chugs along like a runaway freight train in some places and carries an early Sabbath vibe in others. Their most recent studio effort ‘The Spark That Moves’ (2018) oscillates between stoner groove and punk belligerence. Cancer Bats are true stage hounds and their sets generate as much energy as a whirling dervish on speed. You don’t need to be a metalcore or punk fan to enjoy a Cancer Bats show. Just enjoy the ride! #GMM23
