[edit] Early years and Birthing the Giant

Cancer Bats originated in May 2004 with singer Liam Cormier and guitarist Scott Middleton, former member of Toronto heavy metal band At the Mercy of Inspiration.[6] The two wanted to form a project that combined their favorite parts of bands like Refused, Black Flag, Led Zeppelin and Down, among others. The lineup was rounded out with the addition of Andrew McCracken on bass and Joel Bath on drums. The four-piece wasted no time writing and recording songs for a self-released demo that saw light in January 2005. The story is that the band considered the names Cancer Bats and Pneumonia Hawk after deciding that a combination of illness and animal name would give the best band name,[7] Soon after, Mike Peters replaced Bath on the drums and the band began playing throughout Southern Ontario, playing live shows with bands like Billy Talent, Every Time I Die, NORA, Alexisonfire, Haste the Day, It Dies Today, Bane, Comeback Kid, Buried Inside, Attack in Black, Misery Signals, This Is Hell, Rise Against, The Bronx and Gallows.

On June 2, 2006, the band took part in a short interview and then played a free CD release show at The Edge 102.1 (CFNY-FM) and then on the 6th Birthing the Giant was released into major record stores. The album includes guest vocals by George Pettit of Alexisonfire. On June 7, 2006 they hosted All Things Rock, a show on MTV Canada, and had their own video played at the end of the show.[8]

[edit] Lineup changes/Hail Destroyer

Bass player Andrew McCracken left to concentrate on his design company Doublenaut. His spot was filled in by Jason Bailey (Former member of bands Figure Four and Shattered Realm) for most of 2007 after which he was replaced by Jaye R. Schwarzer, who is formerly of Left Behind, Hope To Die, Minesweeper, Kover, and currently a Reefer Cathedral member alongside Cancer Bats guitarist Scott Middleton.

The band released their second studio album called Hail Destroyer on April 22, 2008. The album features guest vocals by Wade MacNeil of Alexisonfire and Black Lungs, Tim McIlrath of Rise Against and Benjamin Kowalewicz of Billy Talent. The release was held at the Mod Club in downtown Toronto with Liam Cormier not only singing for Cancer Bats, but also performing drums for Black Lungs.

On May 17, 2008, Cancer Bats were put on the cover of Kerrang!, a publication which gave their album Hail Destroyer a KKKKK review (highest possible) as well as a 5k Live review on their headlining UK tour. Cancer Bats were also nominated for 2008 Album of the Year for the 2008 Kerrang! awards.

Cancer Bats have performed at the Download Festival in 2007, Groezrock 2007 and at both Reading and Leeds Festivals in 2007 and 2008. In the summer of 2008, the band did an extensive summer and autumn tour with Bullet for My Valentine, Black Tide and Bleeding Through, as part of the No Fear music tour across North America. Also in 2008 they were a support act for Welsh band Funeral for a Friend during their tour of Britain and northern Europe.

March 2009, they went on tour at the annual Taste of Chaos festival along with Thursday, Four Year Strong, Pierce the Veil and Bring Me the Horizon, keeping a daily blog on their website. At about this time Cancer Bats were also featured in Bring Me the Horizon's video for "Chelsea Smile" in which they appear in the "Kitchen Scene" of the video playing cards.

Cancer Bats returned to the UK in 2009, after Swedish melodic metal band In Flames cancelled their April 2009 concerts, on which Cancer Bats were slated to be main support.[9]

In August 2009 the Cancer Bats played a slot at the premier showing of the Sonisphere festival and at the inaugural Hevy Music Festival on 1 August 2009.

Liam Cormier lent his vocals to sing on fellow Canadian band Silverstein's fourth studio album A Shipwreck in the Sand on a track called "Vices". The band is also featured on Gallows' latest album Grey Britain.

In 2009 the Cancer Bats took part in a documentary series called City Sonic. The series which featured 20 Toronto artists had the band reflecting on their time at the Adrift Clubhouse.

[edit] Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones

In October and November 2009, the band supported Billy Talent on their UK and European tour. During the tour they performed several new songs from the upcoming album such as Darkness [10] and Scared to Death [11]

The band finished recording their third studio album, due for release April 12, 2010.[12] Cancer Bats third album is titled Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones.[13] and the band have talked Rock Sound through it track by track.[14]

In January/February 2010, the band toured America supporting Anti-Flag. Following that tour they joined fellow Canadians Billy Talent, Alexisonfire and the American band Against Me! on a tour across Canada throughout March. In September of the same year they opened for Bring Me the Horizon on their UK tour along with Tek One.

In Late 2011, Cancer Bats toured Canada as a Black Sabbath tribute band under the moniker "Bat Sabbath".[16] The concept stated at Sonisphere Festival on July 10, 2011 when the band was asked to do an after-party show, on top of their initial set in the afternoon, in the tent stage after Slipknot played the main stage. The dates they performed at for the Sonisphere were the last dates they did before they stopped to work on a follow up to there third studio album.[17] After the performances at the various Sonisphere dates they did a 12 date canadian tour in December 2011 centred around the Black Sabbath tribute.[18][19]

[edit] Dead Set on Living (2012-Present)

The Band announced that the fourth album is titled "Dead Set on Living", which is planned to be released in spring of 2012.[20] Cancer Bats had stated that they desired to create a more "upbeat" follow up to their previous album "Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones".[17] The bands influence steered away from the "traditional hardcore record" and took a wide variety of influences from rock bands including Fleet Foxes. Liam Cormier when asked about his influences stated: "In a lot of ways we get really inspired by non-metal bands. For me, I find I really like looking at other things because I just don't want to make a traditional hardcore record lyrically. So for me, I listen to a lot of indie rock and I've been getting super psyched on a lot of that, like the new 'Helplessness Blues' by Fleet Foxes".[21]

On 24 January, Distort Entertainment released the video for the single on line.[22] On March 7, 2012 Cancer Bats released a second music video in promotion of the album for the song Road Sick.[23] Cancer Bats' announced that they would play several release shows on April 21, 2012. They have aimed to play in six different venues across London, United Kingdom in promotion of their fourth album.[20]
