Cancer Bats

Toronto hardcore/hard rock blenders (and sometimes Black Sabbath cover band) Cancer Bats will return with their fifth album, Searching For Zero, on March 10 via Metal Blade Records. Its lead single "Satellites" comes with a hearty helping of thick riffs, as you can hear for yourself by watching its video below. Artwork and tracklist below too.

Cancer Bats have now announced a tour with the more traditionally hardcore and also great Canadian band Exalt, kicking off a few days after the album's release. The tour hits NYC twice: March 26 at Cake Shop and March 28 at Saint Vitus. Openers TBA, and advance tickets for Vitus should be available soon via Ticketfly.

All dates are listed, with the new Cancer Bats single and a stream of Exalt's 2014 LP Pale Light, below...
