Canadian hardcore punk band Cancer Bats are performing in Barcelona this month, bringing their heavy metal influenced sound to the city. The group has five studio albums and six extended plays under their belt, and have also toured as Bat Sabbath, a Black Sabbath cover band. Founded in 2004, the last 11 years have seen the band nominated for a Kerrang! Album of the Year award for their 2008 record Hail Destroyer, whilst their sound has evolved to encompass a slightly more upbeat tone whilst retaining their hardcore roots. Their latest album, Searching For Zero (2015), has been critically acclaimed, receiving a 4K Kerrang! rating.
