“Grown-ass men were taking off their shirts and punching their best friends in the face! That’s what Oakland’s doing,” said Liam Cormier vocalist for Toronto hardcore punks the CANCER BATS. Stubble talked with Liam just after their blistering set at the Metro Operahouse about their latest release ‘Bears, Mayors, Scrapes, and Bones’ (Distort 2010) featuring a must hear cover of The Beastie Boys “Sabotage”, lessons on how to command a metal crowd, racial profiling at the Canadian border, and a sing along to the ‘Immigrant Song’. All this and more on this edition of StubbleTV.

Stubble: I have to say that was a great set.
We don’t do a ton of metal tours like this.
Stubble: Yeah I thought it was a weird little match up, but not really…
We started playing and it just went off. The kids up for it up. Adults we up for it. Let’s not say kids, grown-ass men were taking off their shirts and punching their best friends in the face! That’s what Oakland’s doing.

Stubble: So whats coming up for you guys?
Keep mixing it up you know? Those dudes in there are down with the fact that we sound punk or like Black Flag. Then we go on tour with Rise against and those kids are stoked that we have metal
