Hardcore band Beartooth has released a music video for their latest single “You Never Know.” The video features frontman Caleb Shomo alone in a hotel room seemingly devolving into a state of madness, at times insanely happy, at others intensely sad and angry. He hides this duality in the video’s other scenes, acting “normal” as he rides motorcycles and performs with the rest of the band. It’s an intense video for an intense song.
According to Shomo, the video tries to capture the song’s theme of living with mental illness, saying:
“‘You Never Know’ is about the mental state you’re in during a panic attack. It’s truly indescribable unless you’ve been through it. This video is our attempt at depicting that feeling.”
“You Never Know” is from the band’s third studio album Disease, which was released in September. It follows previous singles “Infection,” “Disease,” “Bad Listener” and “Manipulation.”
Beartooth is currently supporting Architects on tour in Europe. The band also has a handful of spring and summer festival dates lined up, including So What?!, Welcome to Rockville, Sonic Temple, Chicago Open Air and Rocklahoma.
