Proving that loud, gritty, and ranting punk rock is still alive and thrashing in Canada, Toronto’s Cancer Bats were founded in the spring of 2004 by singer Liam Cormier and guitarist Scott Middleton. Cormier and Middleton had worked together before in a metal band called At the Mercy of Inspiration and were looking to launch a new project that would take their music in a harder but more elemental direction. Teaming with bassist Andrew McCracken and drummer Joel Bath, they formed Cancer Bats and recorded a four-song demo that they sold at shows in early 2005. After a few months, the group became disenchanted with drummer Bath, and Mike Peters shortly took over as the group’s beat-keeper.
