If you’d like to submit Canadian news to AbsolutePunk.net, email me at deborah.remus@absolutepunk.net or send me a PM with “Canadian Round-Up” in the subject line. I don't check the news queue often so that's probably the best way if you want to guarantee I'll see it.

It's been awhile since I've seen Cancer Bats headline, but I'm glad I waited because the openers this time are way better than in the past.

Otherwise, still too bad about The Artist Life. I wonder if Underground Operations went under as well, since they haven't updated anything since May.

I really want to go to one of those Cancer Bats dates. I've been dying to see Touché Amoré. I also wish one of those Live The Story dates were closer to me.

Deborah Remus 02/05/12 10:35 AM

Yeah, Touché Amoré has been hyped by so many people on this site so I'm extra curious to see them. I always appreciate it when Canadian bands get American ones to open because they probably wouldn't tour across the country otherwise.

Wish they could have booked one inbetween on the 27th or a add few dates on the way home from MTL! Should be a lot of fun, my first time ever on tour. Thanks to Deborah/AP.net for posting about it!

Also with UO, Katie Clark left a couple weeks ago. Not too sure what is going on with them right now.

No problem! Interesting you got Take Me To The Pilot. I took some college classes with the singer's girlfriend, but I haven't heard much about them until recently... seems like they're finally starting to make a name for themselves.

And yeah, I noticed that. Apparently Mark is head of the A&R department at Universal Music Canada so I can't help but feel like that label is going to fade away like Smallman did.

So excited to see Touche Amore.

They do but they won't announce the tour formally, for example Ladispute toured across the province of quebec last May and it was only pushed throughtout the shows they were doing in the province of quebec. Vanna did the same in 2009 and Stray did the same in September; just to name a few...

I'm not talking about province tours, I'm talking about cross country tours, haha. Not very many American bands tour across Canada and play all the provinces.
