Rock 105 Presents BEARTOOTH: Summer 2024 Tour

Beartooth
Hardcore Punk
Caleb Shomo first turned the pain of his struggle with mental health and self-image into music in 2013. Beartooth began as a living document, a diary, a journal of repressed rage and depression. Alone in his basement studio, screaming and singing, playing all the instruments, and self-producing a batch of furious but melodic songs filled with reflection and confession, the Ohio native stared into the abyss, initially with no intention of returning to the heavy music world that burned him as a teen.

A decade later, the different pieces of his body of work connect in title, sound, and spirit. As the frontman hits 30, Beartooth’s fifth album, The Surface, completes this era in 2023. Even more importantly, it kicks off a new chapter filled with surprising optimism and just as honest. Depression is a sick, disgusting, aggressive disease below the surface. Caleb stands ready to bask in the light.

Like Nine Inch Nails, Beartooth remains a one-person band in the studio. On the heels of the introductory Sick EP (2013),
Disgusting (2014) produced BEARTOOTH’s first Gold single, “In Between.” Aggressive (2016) and Disease (2018) expanded on the desperation and pain, each a step closer to a balance between the blood and tears of classic recordings and the shimmer of modernity.

Rolling Stone heralded Beartooth as one of 10 Artists You Need to Know. The rabid response to Caleb’s music
demonstrated how many people related to his struggle for self-acceptance. Below (2021) topped the Rock and Alternative charts and several Best Rock/Metal Albums of the Year lists. As of 2023, the Beartooth catalog boasts more than 1 billion streams across all platforms.

Beartooth began as both bomb and balm, an outright refusal to suffer in silence, weaponizing radio-ready bombast, delivering raw emotion mixed with noise-rock chaos. Other bands play the “devastating riffs and catchy hooks” game, but this music is the difference between life and death, and now, a sort of life after death while still here. The band Forbes sees “inching towards a tipping point of becoming the latest arena headliner” is now one step closer.

Currents
Metal
No stranger to turning a critical eye toward both the external commotion and internal battles that rage deep within the confines of one’s own mind, Connecticut post-metalcore innovators Currents don’t pretend that life is a bed of well-manicured roses. Rather, it has been by way of exploring the forbidden realms of a tortured psyche and ferociously searching for meaning amidst uncertain chaos that the band has won the hearts of metal fans across the globe; a feat evidenced by 80+ million catalog streams and packed tours supporting the likes of Ice Nine Kills, Thy Art is Murder, August Burns Red, As I Lay Dying, We Came As Romans, Fit For A King, and more.

Keen on backing up impactful themes such as heartache, abandonment, climate change, and animal abuse, with technical riffage and emotive atmospherics, Currents’ second full-length album The Way It Ends (2020) saw the group connect with their largest audience to date, selling over 6,000 vinyl despite the global touring shutdown, rocketing to No. 2 on the Top New Artist and Current Hard Rock Billboard Charts, and earning glowing praise from prominent outlets such as Kerrang! who described the band’s work as, “A narcotic blend of melodrama and madness.”

Now, back with their first new material since their popular sophomore record, vocalist Brian Wille, bassist Chris Pulgarin, drummer Matt Young, and guitarists Chris Wiseman and Ryan Castaldi’s latest single ‘The Death We Seek’ not only taps back into this familiar darkness, but continues to push the story forward.

Recorded in December 2021 at guitarist Chris Wiseman’s studio in Beacon, New York, Currents once again called upon The Way it Ends / I Let the Devil In producer Ryan Leitru (In Search Of Solace, Like Moths To Flames, WCAR), and seasoned mix/mastering engineer Jeff Dunne (Wage War, Silent Planet, Make Them Suffer) to help guide the sonic direction of the new track.

Together, the team churned out a seething blend of progressive metalcore-laced elements and moody post-hardcore to fuel the fire of Currents’ narrative message.

“The single follows the loose concept of two individuals attempting to stop a looming apocalypse, only to be sabotaged by forces beyond their control or understanding,” frontman Brian Wille explains. “The song itself is about the weight of our choices and our responsibility for their outcomes. We’re also attempting to paint a picture of the world surrounding the overarching story we hope to create.”

“This song serves as a continuation to ‘The Way it Ends’ while also calling back to our first record ‘The Place I Feel Safest.’” the singer continues. “It was written around the time TWIE was released, so it carries a similar feel. We thought it was a good way to build on the story behind the music and reintroduce ourselves to the world after a period of relative silence.”

Biding their time for the right moment to strike, Currents – much like the apocalyptic collapse foretold in their latest single – plow ahead like an unstoppable force, expressing their vision through anguished eyes, pounding riffs, and the powerful desire to lay the groundwork for the plotlines of a larger story still to come.

Nevertel
Rock
With their latest releases, Nevertel has truly found their stride sonically. Pulling influences from bands like Linkin Park, Bring Me The Horizon, and Issues; the group draws in listeners with their riveting melodic choruses, hip-hop infused verses and bombastic EDM-style breakdowns. Forming in 2014, Nevertel emerged into the Tampa music scene, originally known as Living Fiction. The quartet, who solidified their lineup in 2017, consists of Jeremy Michael (vocalist), Raul Lopez (rapper/guitarist/producer), Alec Davis (guitarist), and Joshua Barter (drummer).

With two albums, two EPs, and a slew of singles out in the world, Nevertel has racked up over 65 million streams to date while fostering an online community of over 500K social media followers. A testament of their dedication to their craft and commitment to their fans, the band has performed at festivals like Welcome To Rockville, seen radio support from SiriusXM and earned DSP recognition with a placement on Spotify’s All New Metal playlist.
