Searching for Zero is now available for pre-order at iTunes and on New Damage Records. Fans who pre-order the album will receive an instant grat of the lead single “Arsenic In The Year Of The Snake”. The iTunes version of the album will also include an exclusive track titled “Rust and Bone”.
Produced by legendary multi-platinum producer Ross Robinson (At The Drive-In, Slipknot, The Cure, Sepultura, Glassjaw) Searching For Zero is simultaneously the most melodic, yet menacing Cancer Bats release. The record incorporates the crude hardcore punk of their 2006 debut, Birthing The Giant and more metal leanings of 2008’s Hail Destroyer, while pushing the heavy hybrid sounds of 2010’s Mayors Bears Scraps and Bones and 2012’s darker Dead Set On Living to a new plateau. The choruses are hookier, the screams more savage, the riffs more vicious, the songs more powerful. This is Cancer Bats at their pinnacle – their “True Zero.”
Since first turning heads in 2006 with the release of their critically acclaimed debut, Cancer Bats, made up of lead vocalist Liam Cormier, guitarist Scott Middleton, drummer Mike Peters and bassist Jaye Schwarzer, have arduously and unrelentingly toured across the globe, averaging about 300 shows a year in both 2011 and 2012 alone. Truly one of the hardest working bands in Canada, Cancer Bats have graced the covers and pages of countless tastemaking publications including Kerrang!, Exclaim!, Revolver, and Rock Sound and have been nominated for numerous awards from JUNO’s to Metal Hammer Golden God Awards.
