Last month we featured an article we urged you all to read.
We introduced you to Teeth.
Daily we bring you news posts, interviews, features and introduce you to new talent. We bring stories of tours, band accomplishments, label announcements. And each thing we post honestly means something otherwise it wouldn’t be featured here at Circuit Sweet. However now we bring you a truly heroic story from an artist we need you to listen to. A project which in no time at all will be known by many for this one man’s efforts. Already this musician and his story has reached so many- having been mentioned on News Channels and Forums throughout the web. We introduce you to John Grabski III and his project Teeth.
You can become familiar with the story and read the feature again here.
Since featuring the article we’ve been inundated with comments of which we’ve shared and we’ve had the article featured in newspapers and various press resources since. The response has been somewhat phenomenal.
Today February 29th we can officially say Happy Teeth Day! And share with you the new album. As previously mentioned Teeth’s album The Strain takes the listener into, and out of a thirty minute, thirteen second journey of confrontation with cancer. Designed to be harsh and startling yet sweet at the same time, the music and lyrics are collectively intended to provide a full cycle of emotions from come-what-may acceptance to vile disdain to confrontation and triumph.
The Strain is streaming via bandcamp as of today and available to purchase now. The follow-up album Release will be available a few months later. After promoting the forthcoming release, friends family and the copious amount of strangers who this story affected all helped towards funding of the record- so this post is for you too.

7. Great Failure/Teeth
Streaming in its entirety below- The Strain offers an honest, direct and raucous approach. 7 tracks highlighting a vicious personal journey all of which incredibly raw, unreserved and more than anything passionate. This grunge inspired effort is hard hitting, audacious and powerful- perfectly kept with the message of the release. Each composition flows into the next with such faculty. A strong release which should make all those involved proud of their efforts to date.
