Beartooth's fourth album, Below, just dropped last week (June 25) and now the band has unveiled The Journey Below, the graphic novel companion that serves as a prequel to the record that will be released through Z2 Comics.

The graphic novel explores the world of demon overlord Barry, who awakens the memory of Lita, a corporate drone, and she is reminded of how illuminating the world was before rock music was outlawed by some stiffs in suits, ultimately revitalizing her old self with a new sense of who she can be once more.

Beartooth bassist Oshie Bichar commented, “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."

Writer Tony Lee offered, "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."
