"Storytelling has always been something we've wanted to dive into as a band. Our goal is to build a universe full of adventure for Beartooth fans to explore." -Bassist/vocalist Oshie Bichar
Here's the official press release:
'The story behind the myths of Beartooth's album Below is brought to life as Barry awakens corporate drone Lita's memory of how alive the world once was before the cold forces of the corporate world outlawed rock, reminding her of who she truly was, and who she could be again. Told by #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Lee with the members of Beartooth, The Journey Below is a powerful tale reminding us of the vital power contained within every chord and beat of a song'.
"I've been a fan of Beartooth since Aggressive came out, and I'm over the moon to work with them on this story. The world of Below is a place I've wanted to visit a lot during the last year, and now I get to share it with everyone." -Tony Lee
