Official press release:

Multiple Juno-nominated, Canadian hardcore metal punks, Cancer Bats have just released their sixth studio album, The Spark That Moves, as a surprise worldwide. Choosing to forgo the traditional lead ups and teaser singles, Cancer Bats, with no forewarning, released The Spark That Moves in its entirety on all digital services at 12:01 this morning, with vinyl and CDs ready to ship out to fans the same day.

The album is now available through the band's own record label Bat Skull Records in partnership with New Damage Records in Canada and the US.

"We were just tired of waiting," said front man Liam Joseph Cormier. "We spent all of 2017 working hard on this album, all while playing shows and talking with our fans, who were constantly asking 'when can we hear new music!?'. We figured why make anyone wait any longer, let's just drop the entire new album all at once," Cormier enthused. "I know as a fan, I just want to hear everything right away, let me buy the record right now! We figured, why not release our own music the way we want."

On top of releasing all 11 tracks off of their new record, Cancer Bats decided to pull "a bit of a Beyonce" and have dropped a music video for every song on the album. The videos are premiering now via a variety of media outlets worldwide. Check out each of the videos created below.
