October 13th, 2023 CD
2023 is really starting to heat up for rock band Beartooth, now with 1.2 billion career streams, over 800,000 records sold, “Best International Artist” win at the Heavy Music Awards 2022, and recent nomination for ‘Best Heavy Record’ for their US radio hit single “Riptide” at the A2IM Libera Awards. Beartooth hit the top of both the Billboard Mainstream Rock & US Active Rock radio charts in May 2023, landing at #1 with their Papa Roach collab single “Cut The Line”. Thus begins a new era for the band, marked by their most successful UK & European spring headline tour (headlining at Wembley Arena), and 2-month US Co-Headline tour with Trivium, top billing at Sonic Temple Festival and “Sunshine!” fan track release in April (currently #1 on SiriusXM Octane’s Big Uns Countdown). Beartooth now prepare to release their biggest and most commercial rock record to date, as follow-up to their 2021 chart topping album “Below” which debuted at #30 on the Billboard 200 and cleaned up on Luminate’s US Sales charts (#1 Alternative, Rock, and Hard Rock, #2 Vinyl, Independent and Current Album sales).
Artist Quote on Album: “The Surface” “Beartooth’s entire discography has been snapshots of my inner monologue and emotional state over the years with a recurring theme, depression and self loathing. It’s been tough to understand why I’ve felt the way I do for so long. During the pandemic I was faced with 2 distinct paths in life. One, I continue doing nothing to manage the realities of my mental health and continue down a path of self destruction, ultimately ending in my demise. Two, choose to do the work needed to maintain a healthier relationship with myself, no matter how difficult or painful.
This album is the story of my beginnings in the new world I’ve created for myself. One focused on health, self love, positivity, understanding, hard work, and most of all second chances. At the end of the day, life is short for all of us. We can’t escape the end, so why not make friends with it and live in a world focused on living a personally fulfilling life.” – Caleb Shomo of Beartooth
