Beartooth ROCKED a sold out Royal Oak Music Theatre last night! The band kicked off their 2024 tour just a couple days ago, and it's safe to say every show will be sold out! Beartooth has been a personal favorite of mine for at least 10 years. They started in Columbus, OH back in 2012 and have been rocking ever since. The band evolved over their recent album cycle, and front man Caleb Shomo has credited that to focusing on his own personal mental health. The lyrics have gone from "Who knew you'd be hated for being who you are" to "I think I might love myself". Those lyrics alone tell a story. Beartooth has been playing sold out shows in the Motor City for quite some time as well. This is their first headlining show at the Royal Oak Music Theatre, and it did not disappoint. Previously, the band was easily selling out St. Andrews Hall. Back in 2022 they performed at the Shelter. That show sold out in hours and blew the roof off. For the current 2024 tour, they've asked their friends in The Plot In You, Invent Animate and Sleep Theory to join them on the road. The opening band, Sleep Theory, has a pretty interesting story being written. Just over a year ago, the band posted their first TikTok video. Since then, they've seen the effects of viral fame. The current single for Sleep Theory is titled "Numb". After its release in May of 2023, the song is still going strong on the Active Rock Radio Charts. The Plot In You also has a new single out titled "Closure" which is just getting it's start in the radio cycle. Before taking the stage last night, Beartooth took the time to hang out with a few WRIF listeners and perform some acoustic songs. https://www.instagram.com/p/C2NlCYGOLAB/ Their latest album "The Surface" is out now!
