Cancer Bats Announce 10 Year Anniversary Reissue of 'Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones'

Cancer Bats Announce 10 Year Anniversary Reissue of 'Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones'
In celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Bears, Mayors, Scraps & Bones, Cancer Bats have announced plans to reissue the record, remastered and on vinyl. The record arrives on physical and digital formats on March 20 via the band's own label, Bat Skull Records.

UPDATE (3/17): Cancer Bats have been forced reschedule their March tour dates due to the coronavirus pandemic. You can find the updated itinerary, with November stops in Ontario below.

The new vinyl pressing promises to add "new depth and heaviness that can only be contained on 180 grams of sonic destruction." Additionally, the reissue will come in brand new colourways and features art by Toronto-based tattoo artist Alex Snelgrove, seen above.

"It's crazy looking back 10 years at this album and listening to all these songs," vocalist Liam Cormier said in a statement. "Hearing where we were at as a band, especially having Jaye [Schwarzer] writing on bass, made everything so much heavier. I could also really scream at this point after playing 1000+ live shows, this is where we really shifted into being more metal and aggressive of a band. I'm also so stoked this vinyl is available worldwide after so many people having been asking us all the time where they can find it and extra stoked it can be out on Bat Skull Records!!!!"

The album was initially released on April 13, 2010. Back in 2011, it was nominated for the Juno's Rock Album of the Year.
