While She Sleeps to tour UK with Cancer Bats

While She Sleeps have announced a six-date UK tour with Cancer Bats for April next year – and both bands will release new albums around the same time.

While She Sleeps’ second full-lengther Brainwashed is to be launched on March 23 via Search & Destroy/Sony. The band have just launched a video for lead track New World Torture, below.

Loz Taylor and co say: “Everything we’ve been through these past years has become the main ingredient for the new record. If for once the saying good things come to those who wait was true, this is it. We have done our fans proud.”

Before that, Cancer Bats release fifth album Searching For Zero on March 9 via Noise Church. The follow-up to 2012’s Dead Set On Living is described as “hookier, more savage, more vicious more powerful – the band at their pinnacle.”

An album bundle pre-sale offering tickets plus both new records (opens in new tab), starts at 4pm today (October 27) while general sales begin on Friday at 9am via Live Nation, Ticketmaster and KiliLive. Special guests will be announced in due course.

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.
