VIDEO NEWS: Cancer Bats Release Video For New Single ‘Lonely Bong’
Cancer Bats have released a video for their new single Lonely Bong, taken from their upcoming album Psychic Jailbreak.
“Lonely Bong is a song about life on the road and being in a band,” explains drummer Mike Peters. “It was a big lifestyle change for us when the pandemic happened and we couldn’t tour. We missed it a lot. Playing music, seeing friends and fans from around the world. We didn’t even see each other for over a year. LB is a homage to the road life and the blessing it’s been in our lives.
“I like to think that Liam titled the song lonely bong for me since I’m the only smoker in the band. I would smoke and play drums, working out the songs for the new album alone late at night. Smoking helped to shift my brain from dad/regular life to a creative spot. I was the lonely bong missing his buds.”
