Cancer Bats Announce New Acoustic EP “You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1”, Share Two Tracks


December 18th has been announced as the release date for a new acoustic EP from Cancer Bats. That effort is titled “You’ll Never Break Us: Separation Sessions Vol. 1” and will arrive on Bat Skull Records/New Damage Records with pre-orders up here.

All proceeds from sales of the outing made via Bandcamp will be donated to Water First NGO. Frontman Liam Cormier commented of that, “while we are excited for fans to hear and enjoy these new renditions, the other goal for this project is to raise funds and awareness for the clean water crisis that still exists within Canada for many Indigenous communities.”

Speaking further of the EP, he added:

“After having our road dog existence of constant touring over the past 15 years halted due to the pandemic, and with all four band members, now spread across Canada in separate cities, towns and Provinces, we haven’t been in the same room since March. While separated from each other, we thought what better time to re-examine and record new versions of 6 classic Bats tracks. With the end of 2020 just around the corner, the optimistic lyrics to ‘Deathsmarch‘ seem to ring truer now than when first shouted in 2008, ‘Hey World You’ll Never Break Us, try your hardest, try your hardest.'”

A reworked version of their track “Deathsmarch“, newly rechristened “Deathsmarch To A New Acoustic Beat“, has been released as the first single and it finds Nick Sherman guesting on vocals. You can check it out alongside “Bastards Waltz Recorded Live From TV” below:
