Canadian hardcore lads Cancer Bats have provided fans with an extensive insight into each track to feature on their new album – ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’.
Guitarist Scott Middleton, drummer Mike Peters and vocalist Liam Cormier recently discussed the songs on the new album with Rock Sound. Cormier had the following to say about the opening track: “This is our epic stoner jam. It’s easily the heaviest thing we’ve ever done, and the guys wrote the music in about an hour.”
Concurrently, Middleton says track 8 entitled ‘Darkness’ has a Metallica feel to it. “This was the first song we finished for the record. It’s got a really mean, heavy riff. You know that song ‘Sad But True’ by Metallica? This is our ‘Sad But True.’ It’s the kind of song you just wanna (sic) headbang to.”
‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’ is set for release on April 13th.
