Cancer Bats

CANCER BATS at The Fleece Mon 28 January 2019 from 7.30pm

Cancer Bats

Canadian hardcore metal punks Cancer Bats return to headline The Fleece. A well-known force within the world of heavy music, 2018 marked the release of their excellent sixth record, 'The Spark That Moves' on their own Bat Skull Records. This sonic arsenal combines all the elements of their last five records, blending together the bands most melodic moments with their most aggressive, becoming a savage sprint of hardcore, punk, sludge, and metal that leaves the listener craving more. Equally known for their truly excellent live shows, this is one show you don't want to miss.

Joining them will be Glasgow metallers, Bleed From Within, fresh off the back of their 2018 released 'Era' and a busy year that has seen them that on the road with the likes of As I Lay Dying and Skindred and appearances at Groezrock, Bloodstock, Brutal Assault, Tech-Fest and more. Kathmandu's Underside open this ridiculous bill, not to be missed.

Notes: All Ages (U16s must be accompanied by an adult)
Tickets: £16.50  


The Fleece, 12 St Thomas St, Bristol, BS1 6JJ.

Unless otherwise stated this is an all ages venue (under 16s must be accompanied by a adult)

Since The Blue Aeroplanes acquired The Fleece in May 2010 it has been rescued from eternal damnation as a "once great" and turned into "one of the best venues in the UK"

Relaxed atmosphere, a massive bar that is never more than 2 deep and an outside smoking/drinking/chatting area. Towns with huge arenas and stadiums would probably kill to have a venue like the Fleece in their midst.

There was a time when we'd have said the days of seeing a big band in such a small venue are gone but the hard work put in by the Aeroplanes coupled with the prestige that surrounds The Fleece means that those days are well and truly back.

A massive refurbishment at the start of 2013 means the venue can now claim to have "luxurious" toilets (at least in live music venue terms!)

With the demolition of the main entrance lobby and the installation of larger toilets the capacity has now increased from 330 to 450.
Despite being a national touring circuit venue, The Fleece regularly books local bands. If you'd like a gig email for more details.
