Cancer Bats announces spring 2022 tour dates with Comeback Kid and A Wilhelm Scream
Punk band Cancer Bats have announced a short tour across Canada. The group will be supported by Comeback Kid and A Wilhelm Scream, according to PRP. The tour will begin March 17 in London, ON, and will end shortly after March 20, in Kingston, ON. You can view the flyer and a full list of dates below.
Cancer Bats released their acoustic album You will never break us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1 in December 2020. Proceeds from the PE were donated to the Canadian non-profit association Water First. “While we are thrilled that fans hear and appreciate these new interpretations, the other goal of this project is to raise funds and raise awareness of the drinking water crisis that still exists in Canada for many Indigenous communities.” frontman Liam Cormier said of the EP. The group took over and reinvented their old songs on the acoustic EP. The last full album of the group, The spark that moves, was released in 2018 and was nominated for a JUNO award for best metal / hard music of the year.
It’s been relatively quiet around Comeback Kid lately, and their latest studio album, Outsider, was released in 2017. Mxdwn’s album reviewer Christopher Fastiggi said of the album: “The direction they are leaning Outsider is one that will surprise many fans of the group.
A Wilhelm Scream was scheduled to perform at Fest on Halloween last year, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the group ultimately couldn’t. The Fest was then broadcast live, featuring War on Women, Jon Snodgrass and others.
