The band’s frontman Liam Cormier had previously told NME that his band were “ready to party” on their fourth album, which is the follow-up to 2010’s ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’.


He said: “We really looked at it like, ‘Let’s make this album the ultimate party in every way that I know Cancer Bats fans want to get down.’ Because I’m not sick of what we do, I fucking love playing these songs every night. That’s the kind of vibe I still want to have going”.

Cancer Bats are widely expected to announce new UK tour dates in the next month. They have already announced a gig at London’s Relentless Garage venue on April 21.
