Many an interviewer is quick to point out the influences in this band’s sound; namely HUM’S galactic bombast, and SWERVEDRIVER’S calculated guitar motifs. However, it should really be said that CITY OF SHIPS know the value of first rate songs and their new album is front to back, just that.

Feel free to stream the jam after the break.

I fucking adore Cancer Bats.
