Beartooth confirm Aggressive album and unveil video for title track


Beartooth have released a video for Aggressive – the title track from their upcoming second album.

Aggressive is released on June 3 via Red Bull Records and can be pre-ordered now in various formats. The album artwork and tracklist can be viewed below.

Aggressive was recorded in frontman Caleb Shomo’s home studio with assistance from songwriting partner John Feldmann and engineer David Bendeth, who handled mixing.

According to the band, “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.”

Earlier this month the band confirmed they’d split with drummer Brandon Mullins after completing recording sessions for the follow-up to 2014 debut Disgusting. They teased the release of Aggressive this week with a short video clip.
