Cancer Bats Announce Acoustic EP, You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1
Canadian hardcore punks Cancer Bats are set to strip things back for a new six-song acoustic EP, You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1.
The band have reworked six classic tracks from their back-catalogue for the record, which will be exclusively released via Bandcamp on December 16 with proceeds being donated to Water First NGO. Then, two days later, the EP will hit other streaming services.
“While we are excited for fans to hear and enjoy these new renditions, the other goal for this project is to raise funds and awareness for the clean water crisis that still exists within Canada for many Indigenous communities,” explains frontman Liam Cormier.
He adds of the EP as a whole: “After having our road dog existence of constant touring over the past 15 years halted due to the pandemic, and with all four band members, now spread across Canada in separate cities, towns and Provinces, we haven’t been in the same room since March. While separated from each other, we thought what better time to re-examine and record new versions of six classic Bats tracks.”
The tracklist for You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1 is as follows:
1. Deathsmarch To A New Acoustic Beat
2. Road Sick Sick Sick So Stay Home
3. Black Metal Bicycle My Blues Riffs Away
4. Darkness Lite
5. Bed of Nails Dreams of Tambourines
6. Lucifer’s Slightly Less Rocking Chair
7. Bastards Waltz Recorded Live From TV (Bonus track exclusive to Bandcamp) **
