WATCH BEARTOOTH'S NEW VIDEO FOR 'DISEASE'!
Updated: Aug 25, 2018
Columbus, OH rockers Beartooth have released their new video for Disease, taken from the upcoming new studio album of the same title. Disease, the band's third full length release, is a stark look inward and the next installment chronicling frontman Caleb Shomo's battle with his own demons. It's a painstaking, riff-driven examination of the unshakeable throes of depression. Whilst there are moments of positivity, this isn't the sound of triumph. This is music about survival.
Disease will be released worldwide on 28 September 2018 but fans can today pre-order the record from www.beartoothband.com to receive an instant download of the tracks Disease and Bad Listener.
"The album is a whirlwind of emotion” explains Shomo, “Crazy highs, crazy lows, and lots of intensity. This record isn't about winning anything. It's about trying to even begin to learn how to deal with things. It’s hard to process just how dark you can get, what you can really put yourself through with expectations. It's like starting from the beginning all over again. At the end of the day, it is a very dark album.”
Even as Shomo and his bandmates played to sold-out crowds across Europe, the battle against mental illness and childhood issues returned, and the seed for Disease was planted. The title track was the first song written for it, setting the overall tone.

BEARTOOTH - DISEASE (OFFICIAL)
As always, Shomo recorded vocals, guitars, bass, and drums, and mixed the album himself with assistance from an engineer, now with executive producer (and Grammy winner) Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with Foo Fighters and Rush.
To further enhance the emotional realism Beartooth champions, Disease was tracked in a brand new environment with an old-school urgency. After crafting the songs in his usual basement domain, Shomo made the trip from the familiar comfort of his equipment and isolation in Ohio to Blackbird in Nashville. The famous recording studio was the birthplace of pivotal work from a massive list of legends, tastemakers, and up-and-comers; like Alice In Chains, Taylor Swift and Greta Van Fleet.
In celebration of Disease, Beartooth will be taking off on a headline tour in the fall. Kicking off on 14 September in Grand Rapids MI the tour takes the band all across the states and back, wrapping up at Express Live! in their hometown of Columbus OH on 17 November. A full list of dates can be found below. Tickets go on sale Friday 7/27 @ 10am local.
"We’ve have been planning this tour for months now and we’re so excited for everyone to see what we’ve put together!! Very stoked to have our friends Knocked Loose and Sylar along for the ride as well!. Come rock out with us.”
