News: Cancer Bats Announce New Album ‘Searching For Zero’

2 min read

(AUS) Canada’s finest – Cancer Bats have announced the release date for their new album and revealed the video from their upcoming single “Satellites” online. The beloved multiple-JUNO nominated hardcore-punk-metal band will release their highly anticipated fifth studio LP titled Searching for Zero on March 13th, 2015 on their own imprint, Noise Church Records. The 10-track album is now available for pre-order now.

Produced by legendary multi-platinum producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive-In, Slipknot, The Cure, Sepultura, glassjaw) Searching For Zero is simultaneously the most melodic, yet menacing Cancer Bats release. The record incorporates the crude hardcore punk of their 2006 debut, Birthing The Giant and more metal leanings of 2008’s Hail Destroyer, while pushing the heavy hybrid sounds of 2010’s Mayors Bears Scraps and Bones and 2012’s darker Dead Set On Living to a new plateau. The choruses are hookier, the screams more savage, the riffs more vicious, the songs more powerful. This is Cancer Bats at their pinnacle – their “True Zero.”

Since first turning heads in 2006 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut, Cancer Bats, made up of Cormier, guitarist Scott Middleton, drummer Mike Peters and bassist Jaye Schwarzer, have arduously and unrelentingly toured across the globe, averaging 300 shows a year in both 2011 and 2012 alone. Truly one of the hardest working bands in rock, Cancer Bats have graced the covers and pages of countless tastemaking publications including Kerrang!, Exclaim!, Revolver, and Rock Sound and have been nominated for numerous awards from the Canadian JUNO’s to Metal Hammer’s Golden God Awards.
