After spending the past month igniting stages across Europe with Bullet For My Valentine and

Atreyu, the CANCER BATS return home this summer to bring their mountainous grooves and explosive blend of punk

and metal to venues across Canada.

Since releasing their third studio album Bears, Mayors, Scraps and Bones in April, the Juno nominated

CANCER BATS have graced the pages of Eye Weekly, Revolver, Kerrang!, Alternative Press, and countless

other top-tier publications across the globe. They tore up the stage in front of 40,000 people at Download

Festival, raged with the crowds of over 150,000 at Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park in Germany and played

alongside heavyweights Every Time I Die, Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and Norma Jean. The CANCER BATS

recently had a song featured in Canadian Sci-Fi Thriller ‘Splice’ starring Sarah Polley, which hit theatres June

4th and were inducted into the rock band song network, with four of their tracks now available to download for

PS3 and XBOX.

Before heading to the west coast to begin their tour across Canada, the CANCER BATS will perform at the

2010 S.C.E.N.E Music Festival in St. Catharines and will be part of the brand new “COOL TOUR” which will

be hitting cities across the US in July. In association with Metal Blade Records, Atticus Black by Atticus

Clothing, and Musician’s Institute College of Contemporary Music, the “COOL TOUR” features As I Lay Dying,

Underoath, Architects, and many more. The tour has one Canadian stop in Toronto.

“When you see the Cancer Bats’ new songs being played in front of 40,000 maniacs in the bright Download sunshine, you have the

right ingredients for one of the best sets of the weekend thus far…Dropping their cover of the Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage’ like an atom

bomb and ending with the punishing ‘Sleep This Away’, the Bats turn Donington park into their own beer-swilling, bring-a-keg party

zone. Whose house is this? The motherf**king Cancer Bats’ house!”
