“Cancer Bats are doing what they do better than ever. Considering they were already in a league of their own that is saying a lot. Do yourself a favor and listen to this record as soon as you can, as much as you can.” – KERRANG! ⅘
“Toronto hardcore heroes return as a three-piece with a heavy-hitting album that balances moments of introspection with riotously good times. A continuous burst of energy, the tracks will keep you going whether played on stage, at the skate park or through your headphones.” – NEXT Magazine”
“Psychic Jailbreak is a solid record that features many classic Cancer Bats tropes while also introducing new vocal stylings throughout the record.” – Exclaim!
“Mike’s pummeling drums, Jaye’s bass and guitar licks, and Cormier’s guttural vocals deliver the goods – Psychic Jailbreak is indeed another ripper!” – V13
“Psychic Jailbreak is just the album Cancer Bats needed to usher in the new chapter of their career. The record is a sonic assault of abrasive punk, metal, and hardcore, sounding like classic Cancer Bats from front to back. Psychic Jailbreak should leave fans truly excited for what is to come next from Cancer Bats.” – Spill Magazine
“Psychic Jailbreak encapsulates the party atmosphere, positivity and goddamn heavy riffs that only Cancer Bats can produce. As they return to the ‘road dog’ life, this record is one that will reverberate across all the sweat-stained pits the world has to offer” – PUNKTASTIC
(April 15, 2022 – Toronto, ON) – Today, multiple JUNO nominated Canadian hardcore punk heavyweights Cancer Bats release their highly anticipated seventh studio album Psychic Jailbreak through their own label Bat Skull Records in partnership with New Damage Records in Canada.
Psychic Jailbreak follows 2018’s critically-acclaimed, commercially successful and JUNO nominated album The Spark That Moves and is the band’s first album to be written and recorded by the current lineup of Liam Cormier (lead vocalist), Jaye Schwarzer (bass and guitar) and Mike Peters (drums), following the departure of founding member and guitarist Scott Middleton. Produced by JP Peters (Propagandhi) at his studio Private Ear Recordings in Winnipeg, MB, Psychic Jailbreak sees the beloved metal stalwarts stepping up their game once again, eagerly pushing themselves both musically and lyrically beyond what they have achieved as a band to date.
“Psychic Jailbreak was written and recorded through the two years of lockdowns, the departure of a guitar player, and separation of the band due to travel restrictions within Canada,” shares drummer Mike Peters. “This was the longest we’ve ever taken to write an album and the least amount of time we spent in a room together in the writing process. It was tough to go from years of living on the road playing hundreds of shows a year to suddenly come to a grinding halt for two years. We put all the built-up aggression and energy into PJB! It kept us sane! Now that gigs are happening and the album is out, we are excited to smash ya’ll in the face with loud guitars and these new tunes!!”
The 11-track record features the electrifying title track “Psychic Jailbreak”, the punishing, southern-tinged banger “Lonely Bong”, the hard-hitting “Pressure Mind” and latest focus track “Radiate”, which V13 describes as a “sizzling three minutes featuring everything fans love most about the band, blast beats, lighting riffs, and snarling vocals landing the band somewhere between hardcore punk and crossover metal,” and Spill Magazine calls a “hardcore anthem that is sure to be a hit in the pit.”
On “Radiate” lead vocalist Liam Cormier had this to say, “WE LOVE 90s HARDCORE! That was our whole vibe with this song was to capture that great bounce that all our fav hardcore bands had! Nothing beats a jam that makes you want to wear baggy jeans and pogo in the pit!”
Created by Mitch Barnes, the video for “Radiate” showcases the fun raw energetic moments of a Cancer Bats jam space session. Featured in the video is the band’s good friend Katie Lamond from Like A Motorcycle who will be shredding on guitar alongside Stevis Harrison on their forthcoming tour dates.
