Cancer Announces Reunion, Plans Festival Shows

British death metal favourites Cancer have announced that they will be reforming their original lineup to perform at a number of festivals, where they will play material from their first three albums, which are all being re-released later this year through Cyclone Empire.

No other details are currently available but more information is expected to be announced soon. A statement from the band reads as follows:

"Through persistent demand from Cancer fans and a process of gang pressing we’re happy to announce a reformation of the classic line-up, John Walker (vocals, guitar), Carl Stokes (drums), Ian Buchanan (bass) and Barry Savage (guitar), to promote our first three albums (1990's 'To the Gory End,' 1991's 'Death Shall Rise,' 1993's 'The Sins of Mankind') which are being re-released by Cyclone Empire records later this year. Check us out when we play the festivals and remember to hold on to your bollocks!"

It's good to have them back together again. It was really a sad day when they broke up again back in 2006.

Great band, despite the crappy name. First three albums were absolute classics but lost their way somewhat on the forth. Let's hope they include some headlining indoor shows and include the UK.

Same here, Vinny. A new Cancer album would be badass.
