Beartooth frontman Caleb Shomo recently revealed what a typical night backstage looks like. Contrary to the lifestyle depicted in the brand-new Mötley Crüe biopic, the Dirt, Shomo reveals his lifestyle is far more tame and nothing like what is depicted in the film.
Of course, in the Dirt, Mötley Crüe are depicted as massive partiers, catering to the general understanding of what it means to enjoy “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll.” However, in an interview with Loudwire, Shomo says his experience on the road has been completely different.
“I mean, at least the people I usually hang out with—it is nothing like that,” Shomo says. “That is just absolute madness, debauchery and chaos. I feel like for me, it’s more of just like drinking beers and hanging out. It’s rarely like people snorting ants off of a puddle of piss.”
You can listen to the full interview below.
The Dirt is streaming on Netflix now. If you haven’t yet, you can watch the trailer for the Dirt below.
In other Beartooth-related news, the band recently announced a string of dates for their Disease tour: Part II. The band will kick off their spring run in Canada with Hands Like Houses and Like Pacific. Of Mice & Men were also meant to join them on the tour. However, as previously reported, the band were forced to pull due to their frontman Aaron Pauley undergoing surgery.
However, Of Mice And Men will join Beartooth starting at So What Festival later this month.
