Cancer Bats have announced a series of UK shows, with every ticket being a fiver (and in London, in fact, it’s free). What a great idea.
The band – fresh off the back of killer new album The Spark That Moves – will be returning to the UK again in May, hitting Glasgow, Manchester, Doncaster, Brighton and London, and joined by the brilliant Higher Power. Check out the dates and venues below, and grab your tickets now.
7 Glasgow Attic
8 Manchester Star And Garter
9 Doncaster Vintage Rocker Bar
10 Brighton Hope & Ruin
11 London House Of Vans
The ’Bats have also released a super-cool new animated video for Gatekeeper, which you can watch now.
“Gatekeeper is one of the best tracks off the new album so I was so stoked to be making a video for it,” says director Stevie Gee. “I’ve been wanting to make a goofball violent ’80s cartoon for a while so I was super happy to do that for my friends, the Cancer Bats. Hail destroyer!”
“We are way too excited to release one of the greatest videos we have had the pleasure of being connected to,” adds frontman Liam Cormier. We cannot take any credit for it, Stevie Gee is the creative mastermind behind the whole thing and he drew all of it!!”
Scott Middleton says that, away from Cancer Bats, he now wants to “prioritise my family, personal growth/health, and focus my music career toward helping other bands and artists”.
