This Friday is the first date of the hugely epic Vans Off The Wall Tour, featuring Canada’s finest heavy band, Cancer Bats. The tour sees the band support their new album ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’ and will take the band from the UK to France, Holland, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Cancer Bats are known for their hard hitting music that falls somewhere on the line between hardcore punk and metal, and never taking themselves too seriously. I’ve heard it through the grapevine that Friday’s show in London is already sold out – but I’m sure you lot can think of another way to hustle your way in, or if all else fails, turn up outside and rob a tout.
If you’re not familiar with the band, check out this awesome cover of Beastie Boys classic ‘Sabotage’ from the forthcoming album. Even if the music isn’t your bag, the video is definitely worth a watch. If you like what you see and hear, try checking out the band when they hit London this Friday, pick up the album, or check out the Cancer Bats myspace for more.
