South Orange, N.J. – On Monday evening, June 6 in Manhattan, several members of the WSOU 89.5 FM staff caught up with heavy metallers Beartooth before the band’s album release show at Webster Hall. Gathering at a restaurant not far from the venue, members of the band, Red Bull Records employees, WSOU staff members, and others discussed the band’s new album, “Aggressive,” and shared stories.
As the area’s only metal and loud rock radio station, WSOU has been the station where the New York market discovered Beartooth. “Since we started playing Beartooth shortly after their formation, the response from our audience has been huge,” said WSOU program director Holly Fitzpatrick. “Listeners love their unique sound and intense energy.”
Beartooth’s single off the new album has been tracking at or near the top of WSOU’s charts for the past few weeks. “Aggressive” is available on Red Bull Records.
