Hotly tipped Columbus, Ohio based band Beartooth have announced a debut UK tour which sees them performing at Manchester’s Roadhouse on 19th September.

The American five-piece, fronted by former Attack Attack singer Caleb Shomo recently released their debut album, Disgusting, which premiered on Radio 1 and have been hailed by Kerrang! as possibly the best new band of 2014.  Having begun in 2012 as a way of Shomo blowing off steam, Beartooth quickly took shape as he jammed with hometown friends in his basement, playing purely for fun.  An EP followed and then European and North American tours including supporting slots for Of Mice & Men, and have recently appeared on the Vans Warped Tour.

Speaking of debut album Disgusting, Shomo explains how the album is a reflection of his inner feelings.  “The entire record, front to back, is literally a reflection of my thoughts and my mental well-being at the time.” he says, “The album captures every end of the spectrum musically and lyrically. I know this may sound strange, but I didn’t write these songs for anyone. I wrote just to write. All of the songs came about because I love writing Beartooth songs. That’s it. I won’t record a song unless I love it, unless I believe in it. I won’t do it any other way.”

Labelled as anything from ‘hardcore punk’ to ‘metalcore’, Bearcore is inspired by everything from Queen to The Ramones, and their debut album was released to critical acclaim with Rock Sound describing it as “a contender for debut album of the year.”
