Beartooth to release ‘Disease’ on Sept. 28

Columbus, Ohio, rock band Beartooth will release its third studio album, “Disease,” globally on Sept. 28. The album is a stark look inward and the next installment chronicling frontman Caleb Shomo’s battle with his own demons. Fans can preorder the album and receive instant downloads of tracks “Bad Listener” and “Disease.” Preorders at the band’s website BeartoothBand.com include limited and exclusive “Disease” vinyl and merch bundles.

“The album is a whirlwind of emotion,” Shomo said. “Crazy highs, crazy lows and lots of intensity. This record isn’t about winning anything. It’s about trying to even begin to learn how to deal with things. It’s hard to process just how dark you can get, what you can really put yourself through with expectations. It’s like starting from the beginning all over again. At the end of the day, it is a very dark album.”

Even as Shomo and his bandmates played to sold-out crowds across Europe, the battle against mental illness and childhood issues returned, and the seed for “Disease” was planted. The title track was the first song written for it, setting the overall tone.

As always, Shomo recorded vocals, guitars, bass and drums, and mixed the album himself with assistance from an engineer, now with executive producer (and Grammy winner) Nick Raskulinecz, who has worked with Foo Fighters and Rush.

To further enhance the emotional realism Beartooth champions, the album was tracked in a new environment, with an old-school urgency. After crafting the songs in his usual basement domain, Shomo made the trip from the familiar comfort of his equipment and isolation in Ohio to Blackbird in Nashville. The famous recording studio was the birthplace of pivotal work from a massive list of legends, tastemakers and up-and-comers; like Alice in Chains, Taylor Swift and Greta Van Fleet.
