BEARTOOTH's Explosive Fifth Album 'The Surface' and New Video 'I Was Alive' - OUT NOW

Updated: Mar 21




On Friday, October 13, BEARTOOTH - the high-octane rock band that's sold millions of copies and has even more streams - dropped their much-awaited fifth album, The Surface. The quintet, comprising Caleb Shomo on vocals, Zach Huston and Will Deely on guitars, Oshie Bichar on bass, and Connor Denis on drums, delivered a powerful and exciting record that showcases their impressive musicianship and creativity. With the backing of Red Bull Records, The Surface is a testament to the band's dedication and hard work, and it's a must-listen for any rock enthusiast.


"I Was Alive," a new track released from the latest album, has an accompanying video that has been shared online for fans to enjoy. When talking about the track, Shomo shared the song is "about the fact that none of this lasts forever and when we get one ride on this crazy journey we're on, so we've got to give it to everything we've got."



The Surface is a deeply personal and impactful album. Caleb Shomo has never been one to shy away from sharing his inner turmoil with his fans through his music. However, while the album continues this trend, it also marks a significant turning point for the artist. Shomo's outlook has become more optimistic, and he shows remarkable growth on the album, both as an artist and as a human being. Through the tracks that make up The Surface, Shomo takes listeners on an emotional journey, showcasing his passion and talent while reflecting on his personal experiences.


"This album is the end of the story of a very important decade of my life and that was my 20s," Shomo recalled. "It's been very up and down, sometimes more down than up. But as of right now, I have decided that since life is short, I want to focus on the positives. Sometimes all you need is some hard work to show you what you need to do with your life to be happy. Hopefully this album can inspire people to take control of their own lives in any way they desire."


Since its release, The Surface has become one of BEARTOOTH's most successful albums yet. The four pre-released tracks alone have amassed an impressive 65 million total streams, and they've been climbing up the radio charts ever since. "Might Love Myself," one of the album's standout tracks, is currently sitting at #8 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock National Airplay and #6 on the Top 40 Active Rock charts. The song's soaring chorus, hard-hitting riffs, and Shomo's emotive vocals have struck a chord with fans, cementing its place as one of the band's most beloved tracks.
