Yhdysvaltalainen metallista hardcorea soittava Beartooth on julkaisemassa seuraavan ”The Surface” -nimisen albuminsa lokakuun 13. päivä Red Bull Recordsin kautta. Yhtyeen laulaja Caleb Shomo kertoo albumista seuraavaa:
”BEARTOOTH’s entire discography has been snapshots of my inner monologue and emotional state over the years with a recurring theme: depression and self-loathing. It’s been tough to understand why I’ve felt the way I do for so long. During the pandemic, I was faced with two distinct paths in life. One — I continue doing nothing to manage the realities of my mental health and continue down a path of self-destruction, ultimately ending in my demise. Two — choose to do the work needed to maintain a healthier relationship with myself, no matter how difficult or painful.”
”This album is the story of my beginnings in the new world I’ve created for myself. One focused on health, self-love, positivity, understanding, hard work, and most of all second chances. At the end of the day, life is short for all of us. We can’t escape the end, so why not make friends with it and live in a world focused on living a personally fulfilling life.”
Yhtyeen tulevalta albumilta on nyt julkaistu video uudesta ”Doubt Me” -kappaleesta, josta yhtyeen keulakuva Caleb Shomo kertoo seuraavaa:
“We all have our own struggles that we deal with quietly. Sometimes, it can be hard to explain to the people around you what you’re dealing with. What may be perceived by others as weakness is actually a battle with yourself that you know will be conquered.
Being in the thick of serious change is never easy, and being brought down by those who don’t understand can add to the weight. Know that when you’re in those moments, sometimes you need to just put your head down and fight with all you have, regardless of whatever people say you’re capable of at the moment.”
