Gold-selling, billion-streaming rock band BEARTOOTH — Caleb Shomo, vocals; Zach Huston, guitars; Will Deely, guitars; Oshie Bichar, bass; and Connor Denis, drums — will release their fifth album The Surface on October 13 via Red Bull Records. Pre-order it here.
Like its predecessors, The Surface is an intensely personal and powerful journey for Shomo, who has never shied away from sharing his demons in his music and with his fans. However, the frontman has turned a corner with a more optimistic outlook and demonstrates exceptional growth as both an artist and a human being through the songs that comprise the album.
The band has shared the new single The Better Me (Feat. HARDY). Listen here.
This epic collaboration is the product of the mutual admiration for each other’s work and their friendship. HARDY even spoke about looking to Shomo for advice on how to perfect his own sing/scream vocal delivery in a chat with Billboard.
“There are times where we feel like there is a way better version of ourselves somewhere deep inside that we need to find and bring back to the forefront of our lives,” shares Shomo. “This song is about going through the things that brought me to that conclusion. Simply put, I made a choice to be a better me.“
Additionally, all previously released tracks — Riptide, Sunshine!, Might Love Myself, and Doubt Mehave tallied nearly 54 million total streams thus far.
Both Beartooth and HARDY are currently in the Top 15 on Active Rock radio charts in the US and rising! In fact, Beartooth‘s Might Love Myself moved up two slots this week and is currently at #15 on the Active Rock radio chart, which is the fastest clip at which they’ve cracked the top 15 in their career.
