Cancer Bats Recruit Witch Fever’s Amy Walpole For New Version Of “Friday Night”, Music Video Launched


Canadian hardcore punk unit Cancer Bats have released a new version of their track “Friday Night“. Witch Fever‘s Amy Walpole guests on this revised version of the track, which originally appeared on Cancer Bats‘ latest album “Psychic Jailbreak“. A vinyl pressing of that record is currently headed for an October 28th release.

In the meantime, you check out a music video for this latest version of “Friday Night” which was both directed by and stars Haley Robinson. Cancer Bats vocalist Liam Cormier shared:

“I had been listening to Witch Fever a bunch and getting excited for the tour, I just thought Amy’s voice would fit the song perfectly and really kick it up a notch and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. It went from being one of my fav tracks on the album, to my now MUST PLAY song of tour!”

As for the accompanying video, Robinson offered:

“I really connected with the song because people have bullied me for being a queer Cree-FilipinX person. I’ve been put down for the way I want to live my life. I’ve had to overcome that – sometimes by giving situations a big middle finger. In the video, my character goes out to nature to bring back their power and level up by becoming comfortable in their own skin. This was my first time directing a music video. At first, I didn’t think I was capable of coming up with a whole video concept! I’m used to being in front of the camera. I just started thinking about my own experiences and expressing them was really healing.”
