Along with the announcement, they dropped the sultry new version of “Clever” that explores lead singer Caleb Shomo’s roots.

Shomo and the band recorded the EP at the Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN. 

“When the idea came up to do acoustic sessions, immediately my mind went to family holidays — constantly surrounded by singing old hymns and harmonies on harmonies,” Shomo said to Loudwire. “The idea of taking Beartooth in a direction of my first musical moments in life felt right.” 

The full EP will arrive September 13, and will definitely be totally different than what fans are used to. It will contain acoustic versions of “Disease,” “You Never Know” and “Afterfall” alongside “Clever”. 

Check out the totally new version of “Clever” down below.

More Beartooth news

Beartooth are heating things up with the recent debut of their live video for the track “You Never Know.” The video features footage from the band’s performance at Rock am Ring festival in Nürburg June 7.

Directed and edited by JAR, the video shows off the band’s electric live performance style and showcases their incredible pyrotechnics.

You can watch the badass festival video below.

The band debuted the official music video for the track earlier this year, complete with leather jacket and motorcycles.

Frontman Caleb Shomo told Kerrang!, which premiered the track, that they wrote “You Never Know” with Drew Fulk (aka WZRD BLD).

“It was the first song we wrote together, we wrote it about 40 minutes,” he explained. “We just went and got coffee and talked about things going on in our lives and our mental states at the time and just sort of came to a common ground and the song just rolled out from there!”

Beartooth will be supporting A Day To Remember on their Degenerates Touralongside I Prevail.
