I've heard the name Cancer Bats for a while now but I've never heard them. I'm not even sure what type of music they are - I think I mistook them for edgy indie originally, but I get a strong feeling I'm wrong, and have seen a couple of respected opinions praising them.
Is anyone into them? What/who do they sound like? What would be a good starting point to check them out?
A friend of mine launched into a tirade at the mention of their name a while ago, basically summarised as ' wannabe hardcore poseur hipsters'.
Not really heard much myself but I was put off by his remarks.
