Slipknot’s Corey Taylor Declares “Beartooth Give Me Hope For The Future”

Beartooth premiered new song “Loser” on Corey Taylor’s Beats 1 Radio Show A Series Of Bleeps last night. Slipknot front man Taylor praised the Columbus, OH hardcore band, declaring “Beartooth give me hope for the future.” The Beats 1 and iTunes/Apple Music exclusive will be available everywhere May 6th.

“Loser” is the latest track released off Beartooth’s new album Aggressive, due out June 3rd via Red Bull Records. The video, seen above, for the title track and first single premiered last month, scoring over 100k views in less than 24 hours and landing at No. 1 on the US & UK iTunes Metal Chart. Daniel P Carter premiered another new track “Always Dead” on Radio 1 last week.

In the two short years since their debut album was cooked up in front man Caleb Shomo’s basement, Beartooth has catapulted into heavy music’s stratosphere. They have collected over 10 million views on YouTube, trekked around the globe sharing the stage with Slipknot, Pierce The Veil, Bring Me The Horizon and Sleeping With Sirens and playing festivals like Reading & Leeds, Download and the Vans Warped Tour.

For Aggressive, Shomo again retreated to his home studio to write, perform and produce the album’s 12 tracks, re-teaming with John Feldmann (The Used, Blink-182) for a bit of songwriting contribution and enlisting David Bendeth (Killswitch Engage, Paramore) to mix the release. The resulting songs have as much in common with stomping metalcore as old-school punk, vintage screamo and harder-edged pop punk, combining circle pit-inducing bangers with soaring choruses and bridging raw authentic intensity with accessibility.

Beartooth is giving fans a taste of Aggressive on their US spring tour, going on now. A summer tour across the UK and Europe that includes main stage slots on Download Festival will follow, with more dates to be announced soon. They will also be performing at the 2016 Alternative PressMusic Awards on July 18.
