Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo says fans who attend any of their upcoming shows in North America are in for something very special.

The Columbus, Ohio, group hit the road in January for a widespread trek across the US and Canada, with support from The Plot In You, Invent Animate and Sleep Theory.

And Shomo says they intend to bring all the fanfare of an arena show to the smaller venues they have lined up for the tour.

He tells New Jersey's 105.5 WDHA: "We're doing something that we've never done as a band for this tour, and we're really pushing it. We want to show the entire world with this record and with this touring cycle that we are ready to go to that level.

"And so we're gonna be putting on an arena show in clubs. That's basically what we're doing. It's gonna be something nobody has ever seen from us before. The amount of preparation, the amount of time, the amount of effort is beyond anything we've ever done."

Beartooth released their fifth album The Surface this year, and they're looking forward to taking it on the road.

Shomo adds: "I used to be afraid of it. I used to always kind of just be, like, 'Oh, whatever happens, happens. Who cares?' But honestly, now I'm at least gonna give it a shot.

"I have no idea if we're going to become one of those legendary bands, but I'm sure as hell gonna try, for our live show specifically. And all we can do is work, and we've been working and we are continuing to work and we'll see what happens.

"I know obviously New York is sold out, and most of this tour is sold out now, but if you have a way to get to that show, it's gonna absolutely be worth every penny."
