Cancer Bats - Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones Cover

Cancer Bats at their best...

The Beastie Boys cover that ends ‘Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones’ will surely grab all the headlines, but the thirteen tracks that precede it do so much more than play a supporting role to ‘Sabotage’. With less thrash and more fuzz Cancer Bats have taken a small, but interesting turn as they push the grime and intensity of their sound with solid new tones never before heard from the quartet. Can this record be given the credit it deserves in one hundred words? Absolutely not. Crusty, jarring and still as acerbic as ever, this is Cancer Bats at their best.
