Cancer Bats guitarist Scott Middleton will be missing the rest of the band’s 2019 dates as he awaits the birth of his child. During his absence, Wade MacNeil (Alexisonfire) will be filling in.

Middleton commented:

“Thanks to everyone who made my last @cancerbats tour of the year so awesome! Had a blast at all our shows across France and the UK! Feels crazy to be missing my first show ever in 15 years of CB, but couldn’t be more excited about having our first child in a few more weeks! @wademacneil has my back on the shred stick while I’m gone! Go check out all our tours in Canada, Australia and Europe before the year’s end!

Since I’ll be at home, I’ll be open to doing more studio work than ever before. Please email me @ scott@scottmiddletonproducer.com if you’re interested in help with Production, mixing, mastering, songwriting etc.”

The group added:

“Scoeby is taking a break for the rest of the year, and we couldn’t be more excited for him to start this new chapter in his life.”
