All Else Fails is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, Classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Vans Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.

The band’s last release received worldwide praise from industry publications around the world. With the release of the band’s most recent music video This Burden of Life in the fall of 2012, and its addition to rotation on Canada’s Much Music, All Else Fails’ fan base expanded dramatically.

CANCER BATS/BAT SABBATH Announce Cross Canada Fall Tour

After a number of sold-out appearances and plenty of fan and critical support, two time JUNO-award nominees Cancer Bats just announced that they will once again be taking their alter ego Bat Sabbath on the road. As a special treat for fans, this time around, the band will perform two full sets every night, one as Cancer Bats and one as Bat Sabbath. Coined the Double Header Bat Madness Tour, the tour includes five dates in the U.S and thirteen dates across Canada.

Having toured extensively across the globe, playing over 270 shows in support of their critically acclaimed third album Dead Set on Living, the Double Header Bat Madness Tour is the perfect way to end off the year.

“We are all way too stoked for this Canadian run!” says lead vocalist Liam Cormier.

“All of the touring we’ve done on this record has been amazing and we can’t think of a better way to finish it all off then with one last Canadian banger! AND to make it the ultimate rager, we’re adding a full Bat Sabbath set to keep the party going all night. I can’t think of a better way to end off a record and to get stoked on writing a new album!”

Tickets for the tour will go on sale on Thursday, July 11. For more information visit http://www.cancerbats.com
