Well, damn! Now, THIS is the way to surprise release a record! After keeping relatively quiet since they dropped 2015′s Searching For Zero, Canadian hardcore punks Cancer Bats have just made everybody’s 420 that much better by debuting a brand new 11-track LP titled The Spark That Moves.
When asked about the decision to surprise release the new record (a la Beyonce, Avenged Sevenfold, and Northlane), frontman Liam Cormier said: “We were just tired of waiting. We spent all of 2017 working hard on this album, all while playing shows and talking with our fans, who were constantly asking ‘when can we hear new music!?’. We figured why make anyone wait any longer, let’s just drop the entire new album all at once. I know as a fan, I just want to hear everything right away, let me buy the record right now! We figured, why not release our own music the way we want.”
Now, as if a brand new Cancer Bats record wasn’t exciting enough, the band also teamed up with a handful of creative minds to put together 10 (yes T-E-N, TEN!) new music videos for the release.
