“Ghost Ship of Cannibal Rats” is the next single from Billy Talent’s recent album Afraid of Heights. It is the band’s first album recorded without drummer Aaron Solowoniuk who had suffered a multiple sclerosis relapse and had to take a hiatus from recording and performing to focus on his health. Jordan Hastings of Alexisonfire and Say Yes recorded the drums for the album and is playing on the subsequent supporting tour. The album, their first in five years, topped the Canadian Neilsen Soundscan Top Albums chart upon its release in late July of 2016, marking the fourth consecutive #1 album for the group. In addition to the domestic success, Afraid of Heights also debuted in the top spot in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. What’s more, the lead single “Afraid of Heights” also reached #1 on Canadian Rock Radio, joining “Rusted from the Rain,” Stand up and Run,” and “Surprise Surprise” as chart topping hits for the band.
