Cancer Bats Drop New Video For ‘Lonely Bong’

canadian punk

Canadian hardcore punks release a second track and video from their upcoming highly anticipated album.

Toronto’s hardcore powerhouse Cancer Bats are gearing up for releasing their seventh studio album, Psychic Jailbreak, due out 15 April. The release comes through the band’s label, Bat Skull Records, in partnership with New Damage Records and Cooking Vinyl Australia.

Drummer Mike Peters refers to the latest track: “Lonely Bong is a song about life on the road and being in a band. It was a big lifestyle change for us when the pandemic happened, and we couldn’t tour. We missed it a lot; playing music, seeing friends and fans from around the world. We didn’t even see each other for over a year. LB is a homage to the road life and the blessing it’s been in our lives. I like to think that Liam titled the song, Lonely Bong, for me since I’m the only smoker in the band. I would smoke and play drums, working out the songs for the new album alone late at night. Smoking helped to shift my brain from dad/regular life to a creative spot. I was the lonely bong missing his buds.”

The latest video is directed by Mitch Barnes and introduces their new guitarist Stephen Harrison (Fever 333) who has replaced founding guitarist Scott Middleton. 

The band will hit the road this spring, opening up in London, Ontario, this week. The tour will head west, finishing up on 22 May in Montreal.

In June, the Cancer Bats will follow up with UK dates performing at Slam Dunk Festival Leeds and Newz Bar, Liverpool. Tour details and tickets are HERE.
