Cancer Bats have to be one of the hardest working, hardest rocking and hardest partying bands in the industry today. They operate on an endless loop of touring, hitting festivals and dives alike with their acerbic brand of scuzzy punk. The audience at The Fleece tonight are cramped in, sweated up and ready to let loose and, with a line-up like this, things are set to go nuclear.
Yet another wave of bands have now been confirmed to be performing at this year’s Slam Dunk Festival. The latest additions to the festival’s bill include Cancer Bats, Bury Tomorrow, Kids In Glass Houses, Tonight Alive and more. All new additions are listed below:

Following the end of their recent support slot with Enter Shikari, Canadian hardcore act Cancer Bats have just confirmed a full headline tour run across the UK in March. All dates of the tour along with ticket links are listed below:
Well, 2012 has been one hell of a year. Thankfully, the world hasn’t ended and hopefully that’ll remain the same for these remaining few weeks, though 21/12/2012 is less than a week away now. Anyway, our survival has allowed us to be blessed with many great releases throughout these past 12 months, spawning from acts across the globe at many different stages of their career.
It’s been difficult to narrow them down, but together, DEAD PRESS! has managed to collate what we think have been the top 10 albums of the year. Have a look below and see what we think has made 2012 just that extra bit special and has surely set a benchmark for 2013 to up the ante:
Date: December 6th, 2012
Venue: HMV Ritz, Manchester
Support: The Engine-Earz Experiment / Cancer Bats
With their third album obtaining a plethora of praise from nearly all corners of the music industry, obtaining their highest charted full-length to date along with successful singles to boot and, most recently, the launch of their very own beer, it’d be an understatement to say that 2012 has been a great year for Enter Shikari. To close things off, the band are doing one last UK tour run before sitting in front of their TVs, stuffing their faces and opening presents.
Canadian hardcore punks Cancer Bats have just revealed the music video for newest single, ‘Bricks And Mortar’, taken from their latest album, ‘Dead Set On Living’. You can watch the video in full below:
