Beartooth Premiere “King Of Anything” Live Video

Beartooth Premiere “Sick Of Me” Music Video

Beartooth premiered a new video for their song “Sick Of Me.” This song is from the band’s latest album, “Aggressive.”

The video deals with depression and anxiety with Caleb Shomo having the following to say about that:

“Depression and anxiety isn’t something you just get away from. It’s just inside you. For me it’s just always in my brain churning. It’s about fighting it and overcoming it, you can’t run away from it. You have to deal with it. This song is a big way to help.

At least for me, music has been implanted in my body and what I’ve connected with. When I go on stage everything goes away. If you can choose that you will not let depression and anxiety run your life, you’re going to make it. It’s your body and your life and your choice.”

In other news, the band have also released a new shirt with proceeds going towards National Alliance On Mental Illness.
