Canadian hardcore hell-raisers Cancer Bats recently dropped their latest LP Searching for Zero, rolled out a new set of Canadian tour dates, and stopped by the office to answer fan questions in our Exclaim! TV Chatroom feature. But the band aren't stopping there — they've unveiled a new clip for "Devil's Blood," and Exclaim! has got your exclusive first look at it.
The video prominently features Toronto BMX biker Chijioke Okafo, who takes his two-wheels across the city, serving up some seriously impressive tricks. Okafo also assembled the footage that appears onscreen.

Speaking about the collaboration, Cancer Bats' Liam Cormier tells Exclaim!:
We're so stoked have this amazing video put together by our talented ripper of a homie Chijioke Okafo! We've known Chijioke for a while as a Toronto BMX dominator and have had our minds blown daily following his tail whips on them internets. One day while hanging out with Chijioke, as he built my new bike, I asked if he'd ever want to put something together with one of our jams. I played him "Devils Blood" and was pumped to cut something together! Now we're way too excited to share this collab with the whole world!

Okafo was equally stoked to be involved with the project, offering the following statement:

When the guys approached me about doing this video, I couldn't have been more excited! I've been listening to Cancer Bats for years and never thought I'd be able to collaborate with them in such a cool way. These guys kick ass and so does the new album!
