Beartooth announce new album, premiere song
Official press release: Columbus, OH hardcore band Beartooth has announced the release of their new album Aggressive, due out June 3rd via Red Bull Records. The video for the title track and first single premiered today, watch it here. Visit www.beartoothband.com for more information and pre-order info.
In the two short years since their debut album was cooked up in front man Caleb Shomo's basement, Beartooth has catapulted into heavy music's stratosphere. They have collected over 10 million views on YouTube, trekked around the globe sharing the stage with Slipknot, Pierce The Veil, Bring Me The Horizon and Sleeping With Sirens and playing festivals like Reading & Leeds, Download and The Vans Warped Tour. They've earned multiple Alternative Press and Kerrang! award nominations, gotten airplay on Radio 1 and SiriusXM Octane and been named a "New Artist You Need To Know" by Rolling Stone.
For Aggressive, Shomo again retreated to his home studio to write, perform and produce the album's twelve tracks, re-teaming with John Feldmann (The Used, Blink-182) for a bit of songwriting contribution and enlisting David Bendeth (Killswitch Engage, Paramore) to mix the release. The resulting songs have as much in common with stomping metalcore as old-school punk, vintage screamo and harder-edged pop punk, combining circle pit-inducing bangers with soaring choruses and bridging raw authentic intensity with accessibility.
