Cancer Bats and Witch Fever are hitting the road together, so why not jump on a song together?
Cancer Bats released their latest album, ‘Psychic Jailbreak’ earlier this year, a rip-roaring, relentless and righteously fun collection of head-bangers.
And they have just shared a new version of one of the biggest head-bangers on there, alongside a special guest.
That special guest is Witch Fever’s Amy Walpole and the song is ‘Friday Night’.
An empowering anthem about being who you are in every wonderful way that you can, Liam Cormier and Amy bounce off each other brilliantly, and make the message of the song even more poigant.
Liam had this to say about it:
“I had been listening to Witch Fever a bunch and getting excited for the tour, I just thought Amy’s voice would fit the song perfectly and really kick it up a notch and I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out,” shares Cormier. “ It went from being one of my fav tracks on the album, to my now MUST PLAY song of tour!”
It’s accompanied by a video, directed by Haley Robinson, that perfectly encapsulates the song’s rallying call.
They had this to say about it:
“I really connected with the song because people have bullied me for being a queer Cree-FilipinX person. I’ve been put down for the way I want to live my life. I’ve had to overcome that – sometimes by giving situations a big middle finger. In the video, my character goes out to nature to bring back their power and level up by becoming comfortable in their own skin. This was my first time directing a music video. At first, I didn’t think I was capable of coming up with a whole video concept! I’m used to being in front of the camera. I just started thinking about my own experiences and expressing them was really healing.”
