Beartooth add new members to lineup

Beartooth fans may notice some new faces when the band hits the stage alongside A Day to Remember and Silverstein later this month. On Friday (June 8), the Ohio-founded band formally announced the addition of two new members; guitarist Zach Huston (ex-Like Moths to Flames) and drummer Connor Denis. Taking to social media, Beartooth vocalist Caleb Shomo confirmed the news.

“Just to clear the air Connor Denis is the drummer of Beartooth. Zach Huston is the guitar player of Beartooth. Full official members. This is the lineup. Ride the lightning.”

The new additions come a few months after the band’s longtime guitarist, Taylor Lumley, announced his departure. Back in April, Lumley posted on social media that he had made the hard decision of leaving the band so that he could focus “on my life and my art.” While some band departures are not exactly amicable, Lumley reassured fans that there is no ill will between him and the other guys in the band or their crew.

Prior to Lumley’s departure, Shomo had confirmed that the group was in the process of working on new music, thought it was taking a little longer than usual. According to the musician, the band was taking their time because they wanted the new record to be the album fans deserve.

“This record is extremely important to me, mainly because I feel like I owe you all the record you deserve.”

The still-in-the-works record will be the follow-up to Beartooth’s last studio album, 2016’s Aggressive.

Though things seem a little quiet on the Beartooth front, the new lineup will appear at three Vans Warped Tour stops this summer; July 19 at the Riverbend Music Center in Cincinnati, July 20 at the Meadow Brook Amphitheatre in Detroit, and July 21 at the Hollywood Casino Amphitheater in Chicago.

Beartooth guitarist exits band

Beartooth are going to down a member when they hit the stage alongside A Day to Remember and Silverstein in mid-June. On Tuesday (April 10), longtime guitarist Taylor Lumley took to social media to announce he had exited the band. While some departures can be blamed on inter-band turmoil, Lumley was quick to point out that there is no ill will between him and the guys.

Instead, the musician revealed in a short post on Twitter that his reason for leaving was more personal; he wants to spend time on his art and life.

“Hey y’all, I quit Beartooth today to focus more on my life and my art,” he posted on Twitter.

“I love all the dudes in our band and crew like family and there was no ill will at all. Thank y’all for loving me through this chapter of my life, and encouraging me to love myself. I’ll be back?” Alongside the post, Lumley added a gif of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the Terminator. Lumley joined Beartooth in 2013.

Though Lumley formally announced his departure from the group yesterday afternoon, the rest of the band members have yet to comment on his decision and whether this will affect their upcoming show (June 16 at the Hard Rock Casino in Sioux City, Iowa) or the new album.

Last month, vocalist Caleb Shomo confirmed the group was working on their new album, though it was taking a little longer than they anticipated. According to Shomo, they are taking their time because the guys want the new record to be the record they deserve.

“This record is extremely important to me, mainly because I feel like I owe you all the record you deserve.”

Beartooth’s last studio album was 2016’s Aggressive.

Bring Me the Horizon plan an ‘American Nightmare’


A week after teasing a North American tour in the near future on social media, Bring Me the Horizon has confirmed the outing scheduled for the spring. On Monday (Nov. 7), the British band announced plan to tour North America in early 2017. The tour, which has been named the “American Nightmare” tour, is set to kick off on March 10 at the Revention Music Center in Houston and wrap up a month later on April 8 at the Joint in Las Vegas.

The record was recorded back in April of 2016 at the Royal Albert Hall where they performed alongside a live orchestra. Pre-orders for the live album are currently available on the band’s website with proceeds from the sales going to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
