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.”

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.”
