BEARTOOTH Records Cover Of 'Wild Thing' For MLB All-Star Game

The Major League Baseball All-Star Game will take place on Tuesday, July 9, in the city of Cleveland. Ohio natives and breakout rockers BEARTOOTH were invited to record a cover of THE TROGGS' hit song "Wild Thing", which will be used as part of the telecast of the T-Mobile Home Run Derby tonight, Monday, July 8, at 8 p.m. EST on ESPN.

The city of Cleveland has a rich history in music, and was the setting of hit 1989 film "Major League". Its storyline involved the Cleveland Indians franchise and "Wild Thing" became a cult classic within the film, for the city, and for the team. The track has been reimagined for 2019 by BEARTOOTH.

BEARTOOTH is continuing to tour in support of its third album, "Disease", which was released last September via Red Bull Records. The disc was recorded at BlackBird studio in Franklin, Tennessee with producer Nick Raskulinecz (DEFTONES, KORN, FOO FIGHTERS).

Vocalist Caleb Shomo has called "Disease" "by far the hardest" album to make so far. "This was hands down the most difficult record I've ever made — it's the most depression and anxiety-fuelled album I've ever made" he said. "It was a really, really hard thing to get through. Emotionally, I mean, good Lord! By the end, I was in a really fucking bad place. It was tough to fight through."
