BEARTOOTH AND Z2 TAKE YOU ON “THE JOURNEY BELOW” THIS FALL!
Z2 COMICS, RED BULL RECORDS AND BEARTOOTH ANNOUNCE COMPENDIUM GRAPHIC NOVEL TO NEW ALBUM ‘BELOW’
Ohio Heavy Metal Heroes Partner With Writer Tony Lee and Artist Szymon Kudranski For ‘The Journey Below’
LOS ANGELES, CA— Z2 Comics continues to define the relationship between music and comics; bringing together the comics and music communities across genres for biographical works, exciting original concepts, album tie-ins, and more. Today’s announcement pairs this groundbreaking publisher with Ohio’s hardcore stalwarts Beartooth for the official prequel to their brand-new album, Below.
Following up on last week’s release of their brand new album, amidst rave reviews, The Journey Below serves as a prequel to the pummeling sounds of Below; the world of Barry, its demon overlord.
The story behind the myths of Beartooth’s album Below is brought to life as Barry awakens 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. Told by #1 New York Times best-selling author Tony Lee with the members of Beartooth, The Journey Below is a powerful tale reminding us of the vital power contained within every chord and beat of a song.
Tony Lee says “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.”
Beartooth will bring their new antihero and mascot Barry to comics this fall in Beartooth: The Journey Below, the official companion to their brand new album, available to preorder now in both a standard softcover and hardcover formats, as well as slipcase, deluxe and super deluxe editions featuring exclusive prints and vinyl.
