Cancer Bats - True Zero

The Canadian hardcore punkers CANCER BATS have released their fifth studio album "Searching For Zero" a week ago (March 10th).

The band is composed of vocalist Liam Cormier, guitarist Scott Middleton, drummer Mike Peters and bassist Jaye R. Schwarzer. Cancer Bats take a wide variety of influences from heavy metal subgenres and fuse them into hardcore punk and punk rock and include elements of sludge metal and southern rock. Their sound has also been compared to metalcore bands such as CONVERGE and HATEBREED. The members of CANCER BATS have also toured and recorded as a BLACK SABBATH cover band under the name BAT SABBATH.

The album includes today's tune "True Zero", for which the Jim Agapito-directed video can be seen below, a tune that will shake any leg that are freezed to the chair.

The iTunes version of the album will include two exclusive tracks titled "Kill Me Please…" and "Rust and Bone".

Produced by 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. That the album is inspired by their metal idols BLACK SABBATH can be heard in the melodic elements, both musically and vocally.

Current members:

Liam Cormier – lead vocals (2004–present)
Scott Middleton – lead guitar, backing vocals (2004–present)
Mike Peters – drums, percussion (2005–present)
Jaye R. Schwarzer – bass, backing vocals (2007–present)

Todays tune "True Zero" is taken from the latest release "Searching For Zero", enjoy!
