Cancer Bats

Cancer Bats
Played at Graspop Metal Meeting
2012 / 2018






Hailing from Toronto, Canada, Cancer Bats’ music is a mix of 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 only GMM appearance to date. Their most recent album, ‘Searching for Zero (2015), chugs along like a runaway freight train in some places and carries an early Sabbath vibe in others. Cancer Bats are true stage hounds and their sets are like 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! (#GMM18)
