Cancer Bats Announce "The Good Ol Canadian Rip" Tour

Cancer Bats Announce "The Good Ol Canadian Rip" Tour
Yesterday (September 21), Cancer Bats were named as one of the participants in Silverstein's Stay Warm Festival in Toronto in December. Now, the Toronto metalcore band have expanded their schedule with a string of Canadian dates in the weeks leading up to Christmas.

Cancer Bats have announced they will be playing 12 Canadian shows in December. The outing kicks off on the West Coast with a Vancouver date on December 2; after that, the group will make their way west across the Prairies and wrap up with three Toronto gigs, including the aforementioned Stay Warm appearance.

The outing is dubbed "The Good Ol Canadian Rip" tour, and it features Portland band Lord Dying in the opening slot. It's in support of this year's Searching for Zero album.

In addition to the Canadian dates, Cancer Bats have a heap of Australian and European dates in the coming months. See the full schedule below.
