Cancer Bats have revealed a 16-date tour of the UK with Witch Fever and XL Life.

It follows the release of latest album Psychic Jailbreak in April, their seventh overall and their first since the departure of Scott Middleton in 2021.

“We knew this album had to be special,” vocalist Liam Cormier said when the follow-up to 2018’s The Spark That Moves. “Our band has never been one sole member tasked with all the writing. Over the last 15 years of releasing albums, it’s been a collaboration of the four of us forming all musical ideas.

“We knew that the three remaining Bats would have to prove our worth with this next album,” Cormier reported. “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.”

The Canadian trio felt their confidence grow as the project continued, he added. “We were proud as a band and felt this new offering was worthy to join in the legacy of Cancer Bats albums.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
