 Meet Beartooth, the aggressive metal Ohio four-piece have released a brand new EP through Red Bull Records and are debuting new video 'I Have A Problem'. You may recognise front-man Caleb Shomo from Attack Attack!; he's back and on better form than ever.

This new EP represents Caleb Shomo’s heart committed to record, in a way that’s raw, naked, honest and exceptionally relatable.
