Beartooth is an American hardcore punk band from Columbus, Ohio,
formed in 2012 by Caleb Shomo after he left
Shomo sings, produces, and plays all instruments, recruiting the other members of the band as a live act.
Shomo has said the band originally "started as a joke band" with members of My Ticket Home, as a way to
make fun, punk-rock, hardcore, wild music, play crazy shows and have a good time without pressure from anything.
The band was originally called Noise, but was switched to Beartooth upon realization the name was already taken.
