Watch Cancer Bats New Animated Video for “Gatekeeper”


I wonder if Cancer Bats had any idea that Sleep would also be surprise-releasing an album on 4/20 this year? It’d have been difficult for ANY band to compete against Sleep’s first album in 20 years… but sheesh, that’s just bad luck.

As it were, The Spark That Moves is an absolutely killer album that’s full of the patented hardcore n’ roll that’s made Cancer Bats so much fun to listen to over the years. A couple of days ago the band released a video for “Gatekreeper,” an animated affair featuring some comically brutal depictions of death. It’s a whole lot of fun, and you should watch it below. Explains frontman Liam Courmier:

“[It’s] about those people we have the misfortune of crossing paths with in our lives, who use lies, schemes and deceit to make their way through this world. Everyone has a choice and it’s theirs to continue down this path that will never work out for them. They are the gatekeepers to their own future.”
