Beartooth have had one hell of a year, and things aren't slowing down anytime soon. On top of the release of their new album, Aggressive, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Chart and No. 3 on the Billboard Rock Chart earlier this summer, the band has been touring non-stop in support of the release, including festival stops at Download Festival, Chicago Open Air, Welcome To Rockville and more.
For their next North American headlining tour this fall, the band is hitting the road with Every Time I Die, Fit For A King and Old Wounds for what promises to be one of the lineups this year! To give you an idea, the last time Beartooth played in Colorado, fans were hanging from the rafters of The Marquis Theater while guitarist Kam Bradbury leapt into the crowd.
In anticipation for their upcoming performance in Denver at Summit Music Hall on October 5th, we caught up with Beartooth's Taylor Lumley about Aggressive, their year so far, and tour. Read the interview below and grab your tickets for the Aggressive Tour at http://www.beartoothband.com/tour/.
Earlier this year, you guys celebrated the release of your new album, Aggressive. What has changed in Beartooth’s world between Disgusting and this album? How do you feel you’ve grown in the two years since Disgusting?
The biggest difference is we play way longer tours now hahaha. Honestly, we just grew closer together I think. We all rely on eachother on the road because at the end of the day, we're all we've got. So in the time between Disgusting and now, I think we've just figured out how to help take care of eachother.
You guys have been on the road and playing festivals practically all year in support of Aggressive. What has been the highlight of your year so far?
Playing the main stage at Download festival was pretty insane. To be able to stand where some pretty legendary bands before us have stood and get to play for that many people was pretty surreal.
You’re also kicking off your headlining tour with Every Time I Die, Fit For A King and Old Wounds in October. What are you looking forward to the most on these upcoming shows?
Watching Every Time I Die beat wholesale ass every night. They're gonna be a tough act to follow.
What can fans expect from this upcoming tour?
After North America, you hit Europe for even more tour dates to end the year, so I have to ask, what is 2017 looking like for Beartooth?
It’s looking like a nice break from the road to start out the year and then diving back into the touring world starting in the spring, with a pretty sick tour that we're all really excited for.
