New Releases: April 15, 2022 – Cancer Bats

Cancer Bats - Psychic Jailbreak


Cancer Bats has always been a band that has done what they wanted. You want to pigeonhole them into one sub-genre? Well, they’ll just chance the questions to all of your answers.

Are they a hardcore band? doom metal? stoner? hard rock? southern rock? Well yes, to any of those, plus almost any other genre you might have to pegged on them.

This is what has always stood out to me about the band, they haven’t cared to be anything aside from themselves.

The big question going into the album was would the loss of Scott Middleton affect them in any way? The loss of a founding member can at times be the end of a band as we know it. You can list a ton of bands where this has been an issue. They lose a key component, and they’re suddenly off doing something completely different.

But when the album kicks off, you realize Cancer Bats isn’t one of these bands. Psychic Jailbreak starts off delivering exactly what you expect from them. And then the album starts to provide you with all of the twists and turns you’ve come to love from them.

If you’re not familiar with the band, this may be a good album for you to check out, and then go back through their catalog. 

Here are Cancer Bats with the track "Radiate" off of their latest album Psychic Jailbreak.

Signals From Mars Trivia Tuesday on Twitch is a new show where, as you might suspect, I throw out a bunch of hard rock and metal trivia questions to the audience.

Last week’s game came down to the very last question, with the winner taking away a $5 discount from the Mars Attacks Podcast Merch store. Will tonight bring a new champ?

Not only do you need to know the correct answer, but you also need to be the quickest to answer correctly. The faster you answer, the more points you obtain. But answer wrong, and you’ll lose points.

What to join in on the action, or watch and hang out in the chat? Go here to do so.
