Beartooth are adding even more colour to their new album 'Below' with the announcement of a new graphic novel.
In conjunction with the incredible Z2 Comics, 'The Journey Below' will serve as a prequel to the album's content and follow the exploits of Barry, the demon we see on the cover.
It tells the story of him awakening corporate drone Lita’s memory of how alive the world once was before the cold forces of the corporate world outlawed rock, reminding her of who she truly was, and who she could be again.
Bassist Oshie Bichar had this to say about the release:
“Storytelling has always been something we’ve wanted to dive into as a band. Our goal is to build a universe full of adventure for Beartooth fans to explore.”
And writer Tony Lee added this:
“I’ve been a fan of Beartooth since Aggressive came out, and I’m over the moon to work with them on this story. The world of Below is a place I’ve wanted to visit a lot during the last year, and now I get to share it with everyone.”
The cover art looks a lot like this:
