Anne-Marie McDermott and Friends

Metalcore rockers Beartooth play ZooMontana Aug. 21.

The show includes openers Wage War and Dragged Under, and begins at 6 p.m. rain or shine. Tickets are $36, including $3 from each ticket donated to ZooMontana.

Like few rock bands today, Beartooth harness the sacred and profane, and purge inner darkness with a dizzying light, says their press release.

Steadily, Midwest powerhouse perfects a sound sought by a generation of bands, equal parts solitary musical confession and celebratory exorcism. Their marriage of colossally catchy choruses and post-hardcore- soaked-in-sweaty-metal is without rival. Its effect is evident by their deeply engaged audience; tours with Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, and A Day To Remember; and a RIAA-certified gold plaque. It’s all a testament to the purity of intention manifested by frontman Caleb Shomo from the start.

 Pub Station announces Beartooth: The Below Tour, with Wage War, Dragged Under live on Tuesday, August 21, 2021 at ZooMontana, 2100 South Shiloh Road. Rain or shine, doors open at 5 p.m. and the show starts at 6 p.m. Tickets are $36 and $3 of each ticket sold is donated to ZooMontana. Tickets go on sale Friday, May 7 at 10 a.m.
