Beartooth Drop Contagiously Optimistic New Track “Sunshine!”

Beartooth Spring 2023

Earlier this year, Beartooth joined Papa Roach on their collaborative effort, “Cut The Line,” a re-released track featured on Papa Roach’s 2023 album Ego Trip. Now, we’ve got our first taste of 2023 of Caleb Shomo and co. doing what they do best on their new single, “Sunshine!” 

Marking the group’s first new release since July 2022’s “Riptide,” “Sunshine!” is a startlingly optimistic track offering filthy breakdowns with the group settling for a juxtaposing acoustic, stripped-down chorus that stands out amongst their past releases. Even upon first listen, it’s easy to hear that “Sunshine!” will become a staple of the group’s live performances with the infectious, singalong arrangement. Despite the track’s lively title, Shomo’s repetitive, “The end is coming,” indicates otherwise.

“‘Sunshine!’ is about a lot of things, the most obvious being seasonal depression,” Shomo shares. “It’s always been prevalent in my life but as I grow older, it gets more intense. This song is also about moving on from the dark place I was in during 2020-2021. At the end of the day, life should be enjoyed and a Beartooth song doesn’t always have to be miserable.”

Following the release of “Sunshine!,” Beartooth will embark on an extensive, 38-show co-headline tour with Trivium. The tour will kick off today, April 21, at 98RockFest in Tampa, FL, and will see the group perform a hometown return show at this year’s Sonic Temple Festival in Columbus, OH.
