BEARTOOTH have been announced as support for Of Mice and Men’s UK tour this April.

19th Manchester, The Ritz

Beartooth songs are jam-packed with the passion, energy and urgent excitement of the underground Metalcore that emerged over two decades ago. Beartooth is a wakeup call, a rallying point against scene trends that have watered down the vibrant spirit of a classic sound; there is nothing fake about the sentiments on display. It’s real. It’s raw. Driven by the gritty sounds of guitar, bass, drums and forcefully deliberate vocals, Beartooth’s opening salvo delivers undeniable anthems.
“I Have a Problem,” “Go be the Voice,” “Pick Your Poison” and “Set Me on Fire” confidently announce Beartooth’s arrival to the world via an aural assault that viscerally connects in a way that is primal and destructive. There is no distinction between the band and their audience. They are one. Beartooth serves up arrestingly personal musings that act as conduits to their fans, the people who struggle with the same issues.
The best bands are often birthed by the most modest of intentions. No master plan, no blueprint for success, no marketing strategies – these are the types of groups whose organic formation ensures an authenticity to their creative output that can’t be manufactured. When all of the stars align and the material is fully executed, it’s groups like Beartooth who ultimately dominate against pretenders to the throne.
Take a dive into the mind, take a journey into complicated issues, emerge refreshed and energized. Put on Beartooth and enjoy the ride.
Beartooth are currently recording their debut album, the follow up to this years acclaimed “Sick” EP (out now on Red Bull Records). Stay tuned for more news soon
