The band will kick off the tour at Guildford’s Boileroom on August 4 and conclude with a performance on August 14 at Oxford’s O2 Academy 2. Cancer Bats will take to the stage at Bloodstock on August 10.

Vocalist Liam Cormier (opens in new tab) says: “It’s summer festival season! We’re excited to play some big ol’ bangers, but here’s the thing – we really only book these festivals to give you all an excuse to rage all our favourite small towns!

"These shows are going to be nuts. Let’s get sweaty! Let’s get wild! Let’s tear these shows up!"

Cancer Bats will be joined on the road by Incite.

Their frontman Richie Cavalera says: “We’re hella fired up to join our brothers in the Cancer Bats for another rager across the UK! We’ll see all you metalheads at the party. Come join us!”

Cancer Bats' latest album was 2018's The Spark That Moves (opens in new tab).
