Live at Slam Dunk 2012 on Saturday, 26th May 2012
Cancer Bats are a fun, loud band from Canada. They are a brilliantly wild live band, who have a maximum audience interaction, and as Sabotage, a tribute to Adam Yauch, the Beastie Boy who recently passed, kicks in Liam Cormier dives into the crowd to rock out hard.
As the set continues, Liam is in and out of the pit, running around like a mad man and loving every second of the performance!
They themselves start the usual "Yorkshire" chant, as they say Leeds is their second home because they are always here. Liam then goes onto state that they've been begging Slam Dunk organisers for a number of years to be able to play as it looks like such a fun festival. And that it is, even better that CB are here today as they are a perfect band to have on the bill.
The crowd at the Honour Over Glory stage are going mental every time the guitars roar out and the drums reek havoc with their ear drums.
Every second of their set they have smiles plastered across their faces, which is reflected right back at them from their fans. The room is in unison with the amount of fun happening. Fun, not usually a word once would associate with a band of this calibre, but it fits so well. Cancer Bats are loving life right now.
Liam announces that a tour will happen later this year, and no doubt they'll hit their "second home" Leeds on the bill. I suggest every rock lover goes and checks them out as you will love every minute like I did!
Cancer Bats loved every second of their debut Slam Dunk appearance, as do the fans, and it is safe to say they will be back another year after this electric and high energy performance!
