Beartooth Premiere “Riptide” Live Video

Beartooth have premiered a new live video for their song “Riptide.“ The clip was recorded during the band’s August 6 show at KEMBA Live! in Columbus, OH.

Caleb Shomo told Knotfest the following:

“Headlining in Columbus is always really special. It’s something we do a surprisingly small amount but when we do it, we always try and make sure it is the biggest and best Beartooth show of absolutely all time. And I feel like the show we just did at Kemba was the pinnacle of what we have ever done live. But it took a long time to get there. We’ve been plugging away at the Columbus market since our very first show ever and to have a sold out crowd at the amphitheater was really amazing.

We were able to do as much fire as we could physically put into that venue. We got to work with an amazing radio station, our local station 99.7 The Blitz which really helped out us out. We ended up selling out the whole place. It was one of the craziest nights of our entire lives. And I already cannot wait for the next one. Some of the plans we are already making for things in the future are going to be REALLY crazy and they definitely couldn’t have happened without the show we just did at Kemba. So I am very ready. Let’s take the next step and let’s make it huge.”

Beartooth Premiere “Riptide” Music Video

Beartooth have premiered a new video for their new song “Riptide.” This track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album. Caleb Shomo commented:

“‘Riptide‘ is about trying to start a new chapter in life and trying to stop focusing on all of the negative things that have been surrounding my life for quite some time and me focusing on being healthier, happier, and having a better time with my life.”

Beartooth Finish New Album

Beartooth have officially finished their new album. Frontman Caleb Shomo confirmed the news during a recent interview with Rock Sound:

There is a whole new era, a whole new everything — a complete overhaul — new shit coming real soon. I’m very excited. No one is fucking ready for what we’re about to drop, I’ll tell you that — I will tell you that.”

Caleb Shomo Offers Update On New Beartooth Album: “Half Of The Record Is Done”

During a recent interview with WSOU 89.5 FM, Caleb Shomo offered an update on the new Beartooth album. According to him, “half of the record is done.”

Shomo said the following:

“Half of the record is done. I went out to L.A. — over the last month, I spent about three weeks there in total — and I’ve just been writing and working and coming up with kind of the new sound for this record. And it’s just been happening really, really fast. And it’s my favorite stuff I’ve ever written. I know a lot of people say that about their new stuff that’s not out yet, but truly for me, it just couldn’t describe more about where I’m at in my life, and I think the sound reflects that.”

He continued when asked about the musical direction:

“I’m trying to kind of push myself in a lot of ways, try new things that I’ve never tried before, try and show off different parts of my voice that I haven’t used before. Yeah, it’s going to be a wild ride.”

He also added the following about release plans:

“We’re hoping we have some stuff sooner than later that people can start to get their heads around. I am really working hard on what’s going on, and it is going to rule and I’m really excited to share it with the world. Obviously, we’ve still got some stuff to do with [2021’s] ‘Below’ — with the whole pandemic stuff, we’ve got some ground to make up when it comes to touring and getting that out to everybody — but it doesn’t mean people can’t be ready for some new stuff at some point.”

The three bonus tracks, “Fighting Back,” “Permanently Sealed,” and an alternate version of “Skin,” can be found below. Caleb Shomo said the following about those:

“‘Fighting Back‘ and ‘Permanently Sealed‘ are undoubtedly experimental songs for Beartooth. I really tried to push the boundaries of what I’m doing with guitar, what I’m doing with my voice, and what I’m doing with the songwriting. The outcome may not have made the first cut of the album, but I think they’re definitely worth hearing and play a big role in how the record ended up turning out.”

I think it can be really easy to get lost in taking yourself too seriously. And ‘Skin (Alternate Universe)‘ is ultimately about having fun. I really wanted to take a song that was incredibly dark and put a really light twist on it and do something that Beartooth would never normally do, totally focused towards our diehard fans that have been with us and could use something a little bit lighter.”

Beartooth Team Up With Middle West Spirits For “Barry’s Batch” Whiskey

Beartooth have joined forces with Middle West Spirits to create their own whiskey, which they are calling “Barry’s Batch.” The beverage can be found HERE, along with a new vinyl pressing of the band’s latest album “Below.”

Here’s a description of the whiskey:

“A limited time collaboration between Beartooth and Middle West Spirits brings you Barry’s Batch Rye.

Kosher. More flavor resembling Pink Peppercorn vs. Black Peppercorn – pink being softer and much more fruity & floral. Aged 3 years in old growth, charred, American Oak barrels

Tasting Notes:

  • Nose : Fruity & floral with hints of Pepper & Spice
  • Body : Softly sweet, full-bodied, high-proof whiskey with notes of vanilla caramel, cinnamon, smoked oak and just enough pumpernickel spice to remind you that it’s a true American rye whiskey.”

Bassist Oshie Bichar commented:

“We are so thrilled to be partnering with Columbus, Ohio’s own Middle West Spirits to present to you our first-ever whiskey Barry’s Batch! This exceptional straight rye whiskey was hand-picked by us, and we can’t wait for you to taste how delicious it is.”

“For us, there’s nothing worse than having to write a statement like this – but due to ongoing COVID 19 restrictions, we have made the painful decision to reschedule our UK/EU tour dates. We had planned our biggest and best show to date, and we still look forward to bringing that same energy to you all in 2023. We are just as frustrated as you are, but all original tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates – and we promise that your patience and understanding will be rewarded. We have also added a couple of new dates to the tour in some cities we weren’t able to visit previously.

More good news: we are already announced for a handful of European festivals in June. Over the next two weeks we will announce some more festivals and headline shows. So we will see many of you this summer!

Thank you all so much for your support.
