Cancer Bats post “Searching for Zero” studio video part 1!

- February 9th, 2015 –

During the summer of 2014, Toronto, ON’s Cancer Bats spent several weeks with producer Ross Robinson at his studio in Venice, CA. The Canadian act was pulled out of their normal, more winter-y element to the beaches of California for the tracking of “Searching for Zero.” Robinson and the band shared a singular vision to create a personal, vibrant album and the results are apparent. In the series of four studio videos, the Cancer Bats: Liam Cormier, Scott Middleton, Jaye Schwarzer, and Mike Peters, will share their experiences during tracking and what it was like to work with Robinson and what made this recording session different. Jaye Schwarzer stated in one episode: “let everything that’s fake and bullshit fall to the wayside, and you’re left with like a raw, open wound.” Watch episode 1 now at youtube.com/cancerbatsofficial and pre-order your copy on iTunes!

Listen to that ‘open wound’ now in the form of several music videos, including “Arsenic in the Year of the Snake,” “Satellites,” and “True Zero” at cancerbats.com! Fans in the US can order copies of “Searching for Zero” now at metalblade.com/cancerbats.

Canada’s Cancer Bats will be back on the road in the US, performing new cuts from their upcoming album, “Searching For Zero,” this March! The tour kicks off on March 15th in Detroit, and runs through March 28th with the final show of the tour at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn, NY. This will be the first chance fans in the states will have to hear brand new music, including the previous released tracks “Satellites” and “Arsenic in the Year of the Snake“. The confirmed list of shows is below, with more to be announced shortly, including performances at this year’s SXSW festival!

The beloved multiple-JUNO nominated hardcore-punk-metal band’s fifth studio album features 10 tracks 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.”
