Beartooth + Climates + Dead Harts
Beartooth are an American hardcore punk band from Columbus, Ohio, formed in 2012 by Caleb Shomo after he left Attack Attack!. The band is signed to Red Bull Recordsand is managed by The Artery Foundation since 2013 along with Shomo’s electronic act, CLASS. Shomo sung, produced, and played all instruments on their first release, recruiting the other members of the band later.
Caleb Shomo began writing Beartooth songs while he was still in Attack Attack! as “a different musical outlet”. Shomo has said the band originally “started as a joke band” with members of My Ticket Home, as a way to make fun, punk-rock, hardcore, wild music, play crazy shows and have a good time without pressure from anything.
The band have been labeled as a modern hardcore punk band across both their albums (Sick EP & Disgusting) but have also been said to carry influences of nu metal and also metalcore, possibly derived from Shomo’s previous band Attack Attack!, renown for their metalcore theme although Shomo decided to abandon the electronic elements.The band is also renown for their use of highly catchy chorus’ and melodic verses, giving them high ratings to their music by critics. Caleb Shomo himself was named one of Altpress magazine’s 15 best screamers in metalcore as of February 2014, of which he stated that the band’s motive was “…to make fun, punk-rock, hardcore, wild music, play crazy shows and have a good time without any pressure from anything.“
