Cancer Bats have released the first track Old Blood from their upcoming fourth studio album, and follow-up to 2010 album Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones titled Dead Set On Living, which will be released in the autumn of 2012.
Lead vocalist Liam Cormier spoke about the new album recently with Blare Magazine, saying “I think sound-wise there’s definitely more of the natural evolution of how gnarly we keep getting and how more refined everyone sounds. I’d say the majority of our fans now have seen our band live and know how gnarly and ferocious it is, so trying to compress that into a recording still is kind of difficult. Like we’d say, I thought we did it pretty well on ‘Bears’,’ and then we’d re-examine that and we’d see there’s still some elements that are missing.”
