Twinmusix chat to Liam Cormier about Cancer Bats Sydney Tour and More
what can fans expect from your Sydney tour?
I think our Sydney show is going to be pure destruction, epic head bangs, sweat and all around good times.
How did you come up with your music video for satellites?
We were thinking about a gun way to use fireworks, I thought fireworks are sick so how can we use them. I was talking to a friend of mine and we were talking about Roman candle fights and were thinking how can we use that in our video. I was like we should do a romantic candle fight for our video and my friend said you should start the video off where it looks like a romantic candle fight but you are really just shooting the drummer and I told Milkie our drummer and he said the for sure.
If you could have any band play one of your songs which band would and in your style or there's?
I would love Kid Rock to cover one of our songs as a kid rock song and would love him to do it at a show where dirt bikes are jumping over the top of him.
Do you have any new albums coming out soon?
We are starting to work on a new record so hopefully we will have something in the works by February but we have some riffs cooking.
How did you come up with your band name?
I put a disease and animal together.
What's your favourite gig memory?
The first time we came to Australia in 2007 and people knew the words to our record and that blew my mind. We had only been a band for a couple of years and played shows in a place I never thought I would come to on vacation let alone with my band we meet so many rad people and everyone was having a blast and singing along to the record we just released a year before it was awesome?
What was your experience playing download festival?
Download is crazy with tones of insane bands were playing that I wanted to see. I think every year is like that the line-up is sick.
What band's inspired you to get into music?
Band's putting on shows in church basements and house shows seeing all these nearly hardcore bands ply all the time we really inspired from that. Also local bands like the swarm use to play in my home town and it was the sickest thing I had seen in my life.
Anything you announce to your fans?
I can't wait to party with them on the rattlesnake tour because it is going to be pure insanity.Cancer bats.
