Hear New Beartooth Songs ‘Takeover’ + ‘Messed Up’
Record Store Day releases are gradually trickling over to the web and Beartooth have just digitally released their two-track B-Sides, featuring the songs "Messed Up" and "Takeover," which can be heard below.
Lyrically, both songs deal with the idea of fleeing a negative situation and becoming stronger.
"Messed Up" starts with Caleb Shomo singing,"You're nothing but small / You're nothing but weak and insecure / It's always wrong / One day you'll fall / One day you'll fall," and the track turns into a pop-punk rager.
The empowering "Takeover" takes aim at naysayers and fame leeches, pridefully boasting that no matter how hard someone tries to stand in the way, "you'll never stop the takeover that's happening."
Beartooth are currently on the road with Of Mice & Men and the remaining tour dates can be seen at the bottom of the page. The band puts on an intense live show and even if the power gets cut in the middle of a song, they'll finish playing it anyway.
