Beartooth’s Caleb Shomo Reunites With Attack Attack! Member on ‘Thicc Thiccly’
Following Shomo's musical evolution since those humble beginnings, however, Franck started a new project called Bilmuri in 2016. Now, both former Attack Attack! members appear on Bilmuri's new song "Thicc Thiccly."
But the collaboration released last week (Nov. 20) perhaps isn't what one would expect. Yes, the title is a direct throwback to the crabcore titans' now-maligned banger "Stick Stickly." But Shomo's appearance on "Thicc Thiccly" doesn't come until the end of the tune, and it's somewhat of a rickroll. Listen to Bilmuri's "Thicc Thiccly" (and relive Attack Attack!'s "Stick Stickly") down toward the bottom of this post.
At the tail end of the electronic-based post-hardcore track, as the instrumentation of "Thicc Thiccly" fades out, Shomo offers a brief appearance that comprises roughly four seconds of total song time: "Hey, it's Caleb Shomo," the musician says. "Here's my vocal feature. Thanks."
Attack Attack! broke up in 2013 after six years as a band. Shomo left the band a year earlier to form Beartooth. But Franck left the group much earlier, in 2010, initially to focus on his religion.
"Thicc Thiccly" is from Bilmuri's upcoming album Rich Sips, out Dec. 17. Beartooth recently went country with a stripped-down version of Disease cut "Clever," and the group will hit the road with Motionless in White throughout North America during early next year's "Diseased and Disguised Tour."
