Published Jul 09, 2013Ruthlessly heavy Canadian metalcore outfit Cancer Bats are a live act to be reckoned with, but they're even more of a treat when they choose to rip it up as Black Sabbath cover band Bat Sabbath. Now, they've combined the best of both worlds, bringing both acts on a cross Canada tour.
Called the "Double Header Bat Madness" tour, the run of shows includes Canadian stops in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Ontario, and will see the band performing a full set from each project every night.
In a press release, frontman Liam Cormier said, "We are all way too stoked for this Canadian run! All of the touring we've done on this record has been amazing and we can't think of a better way to finish it all off then with one last Canadian banger! AND to make it the ultimate rager, we're adding a full Bat Sabbath set to keep the party going all night. I can't think of a better way to end off a record and to get stoked on writing a new album!"
