If You Don’t Know, Now You Know Artist of the Week: Beartooth
Former Attack Attack! keyboardist turned lead vocalist, Caleb Shomo, could have done plenty of things following his departure from the band in 2012. After the drama-filled ride that was AA!, no one would have been surprised if Shomo decided to step away from creating music for a while. However, what he decided to do was something completely badass.
Shomo, upon leaving AA!, sang, wrote, produced and played every instrument to help contribute to what became Beartooth’s first EP, Sick. Released in July of 2013, Sick is a four-track slobberknocker of fast-paced, face-melting, hardcore music. If you haven’t heard it yet, be sure to give it a listen here.
Moving forward to 2014, Beartooth has now signed to Red Bull Records and will be releasing their debut full-length album, Disgusting, June 10. The band has been busy as of late, already releasing six tracks from their upcoming release. “Relapsing,” “Dead,” “In Between,” “Beaten In Lips,” “Body Bag” and “The Lines” all continue where Sick left off with the same intensity and booming breakdowns fans will come to love as they tear up this year’s Van’s Warped Tour.
It looks as though big things are to come from Beartooth this year and if you aren’t already a fan, we suggest you start paying attention.
