“If music stops being fun, it’s not worth it”: the world according to Beartooth
After growing up on a steady diet of mid-90s metal, Beartooth reflect on how they’re now influencing the next generation of bands
Beartooth started off as your solo project after Attack Attack!. Does it feel more like a proper band these days?
Caleb Shomo (Vocals): “Absolutely. We’ve all been touring together for over three years now, and we’ve definitely got a family vibe going as a band. Everyone is an integral part of the rocking.”
You recently led a Grammy workshop to help high school students with their songwriting skills. What was it like to teach?
“We met a few people from the Grammys recently and they told us more about what they do with students. I’ve never had a chance to do a workshop like that, so when the opportunity came up, I was pumped about it. It was an amazing experience and I got to meet a ton of talented kids. Hopefully they learned something that could help them out in their future careers.”
