If you thought Beartooth’s explosive sound couldn’t get any more resonant, think again. The rock titans have just unveiled the raw, adrenaline-pumping music video for “Doubt Me” – a stellar track off their upcoming fifth album, The Surface, set to hit shelves on October 13 via Red Bull Records.
Diving deeper into the album, it’s clear that The Surface is yet another deeply intimate chapter in the Beartooth saga. Caleb Shomo, the band’s vocal powerhouse, has always been candid about the shadows of his past. With this album, however, there’s a newfound hope and self-assurance that’s palpable. Reflecting on life’s battles, Shomo comments, “Being in the thick of serious change is never easy…sometimes you need to just put your head down and fight with all you have.”
The music video for “Doubt Me” is Beartooth at its core essence: raw, unfiltered, and a whirlwind of live performance energy. A testament to the band’s evolution, their single “Might Love Myself” has already skyrocketed, making history as their fastest-climbing song on active rock radio charts, hitting Top 20 in mere weeks.
Shomo began Beartooth as a raw, cathartic project, channeling his struggles with mental health and self-image into a blistering sonic diary. A decade later, with The Surface, we see a Beartooth that’s not only fiercely honest but also brimming with optimism. As Shomo stands poised to embrace the future, the album seems to signal both an end and a beginning for the band.
Consistently compared to icons like NINE INCH NAILS for its studio individualism, Beartooth’s journey has been nothing short of monumental. From their gold-certified single “In Between” to the gut-punch rawness of albums like Aggressive and Disease, the band has continuously forged a bridge between visceral emotion and contemporary sound.
With accolades from Rolling Stone and over a billion streams across platforms, it’s clear that Beartooth’s resonance isn’t just about the music – it’s a lifeline for countless fans. As Forbes predicts their ascension to arena headlining status, The Surface seems poised to propel Beartooth into a new stratosphere of rock royalty.
