Cancer Bats Announce first new album since founding guitarist’s departure.

Canadian hardcore band Cancer Bats have announced ‘Psychic Jailbreak’, their seventh studio album and their first since the departure of founding guitarist Scott Middleton last October. ‘Psychic Jailbreak’ is set to be released this April 15 by Bat Skull Records and New Damage Records, and features 11 tracks written by the three remaining founding members of the group. Longtime collaborator JP Peters (Propagandhi, Comeback Kid) returns on production duties on the album, which also includes an appearance by indie singer Brooklyn Doran on ‘Hammering On’.

In a press statement, vocalist Liam Cornier shared that the remaining Bats knew the pressure was on them to produce an album that matched their previous releases: “We knew this album had to be special. Our band has never been one sole member tasked with all the writing.” “That being said, we knew that the three remaining Bats would have to prove our worth with this next album. We wanted to show Cancer Bats fans that an exciting new future was in store for us. To say the stakes were high on this album, would be an understatement. We were all feeling a mix of excitement and nerves,” he concluded. Click here to check out our Cancer Bats selection.
