Cancer Bats: ‘Reading is the best fucking place to play’

Cancer Bats pick up the gauntlet where Gallows left off and destroyed the Lock-Up stage at Reading Festival.

Combining new tracks ‘Darkness Lives’ and ‘Scared to Death’ with classics such as ‘Lucifer's Rocking Chair’ and ‘Deathsmarch’, the band had the crowd pitting from the first note, kicking up dust that made it hard to even see them at points.

"This is our third festival and to me, it's the best fucking place to play,"
announced frontman Liam Cormier before launching into ‘Sorceress’

Dedicating a cover version of Beastie Boys ‘Sabotage’ to the secret band and finishing off with ‘Hail Destroyer’ provided equal, if not better, entertainment than the main stage alternative.
