November is just getting more and more mental in terms of number of gigs. Add to the overwhelming musical invasion melodic hardcore outfit Beartooth…
American hardcore outfit Beartooth will continue their whirlwind year on the road with tours across the UK and North America this Autumn. Appearing at Reading & Leeds festivals earlier this year, the band have announced a UK return for the band’s biggest headline shows to date, including a night at London’s Electric Ballroom. “We can’t wait to get back to the UK for some headline shows,” said Beartooth front man Caleb Shomo. “It’s been way too long! No better way to end the year then with some loud rock shows.” The UK dates will follow on from a series of North American shows with Atreyu and a run with Slipknot that includes a slot on Southern California’s Knotfest on Oct. 25.
Beartooth is touring in support of their debut album Disgusting, out now via Red Bull Records. Written, performed and produced by 22 year-old Shomo, Disgusting shares equal inspiration with brutal metalcore as with old-school punk like The Ramones and the bombastic theatricality of Queen. The end result is a back-to-basics hardcore stomp interspersed with anthemic choruses like those in “In Between”. Both Disgusting and “In Between” have reached #1 on the UK iTunes Metal charts, and the band have now sold over 60,000 albums and had over 15 Million streams on Spotify alone.
The five-piece got their start in basements and friend’s homes and have been playing constantly since, with the likes of Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil and Silverstein. Previous UK tours have included visits earlier this year for the Kerrang! Tour, Download and Slam Dunk Festivals, as well as supporting Of Mice & Men on their 2014 shows. Other dates this year have included their first trip to Australia supporting In Heart’s Wake and We Came As Romans before returning home for the entire length of the 2015 Vans Warped Tour. Look for them in your town soon.
