BEARTOOTH Planning Deluxe Edition Of 'Aggressive' Album

According to The Pulse Of Radio, BEARTOOTH has announced that a deluxe edition of its latest album, "Aggressive", will arrive on May 26. The set will contain six bonus tracks, including an acoustic version of "Hated", the band's breakthrough single that is currently No. 5 on the rock radio chart. Also included are an acoustic version of "Sick Of Me", live takes of the album's title track and "Rock Is Dead" from a BBC session, as well as concert renditions of "Fair Weather Friend" and "King Of Anything", recorded in the band's hometown of Columbus, Ohio.

BEARTOOTH frontman Caleb Shomo told The Pulse Of Radio that doing acoustic versions of songs like "Hated" didn't appeal to him at first. "Acoustic versions in general, I think we were all pretty against, and we were like, 'This is just gonna be weird to try and translate it,'" he said. "But after trying it, it turned out really cool. I love doing it because I get to sing not just literally hollering as loud and as high as I can the whole time, which is cool. It's just fun to play acoustic stuff sometimes. It's just a change of pace." .

For "Aggressive", Shomo again retreated to his home studio to write, perform and produce the album's twelve tracks, re-teaming with John Feldmann (THE USED, BLINK-182) for a bit of songwriting contribution and enlisting David Bendeth (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, PARAMORE) to mix the release.
