Despite the bands growing success, Caleb Shomo left the band later that year due to clinical depression he had been dealing with since middle school. This had been causing him to have suicidal tendencies, and struggle with eating disorders, self-image problems and various substance abuse and addictions for the past year. Despite this, he left the band on good terms with the rest of the band supporting his decision. The band itself officially disbanded in May the same year.

Beartooth (2012–present)

Caleb Shomo began writing Beartooth songs while he was still in Attack Attack! as "a different musical outlet". Shomo has said the band originally "started as a joke band" with members of My Ticket Home, as a way to make fun, punk-rock, hardcore, wild music, play crazy shows and have a good time without pressure from anything. The band was originally called Noise, but was switched to Beartooth upon realization the name was already taken.

On June 7, 2013, Shomo announced that Beartooth was now signed to Red Bull Records. Beartooth released their debut EP Sick for free on their website on July 26, 2013. On May 13, 2014 the band's Facebook page announced the release date for their debut album, Disgusting, as June 10, 2014, along with its track listing. The band released their first single of the album the same day, titled 'Beaten in Lips', along with its music video. The album was available to stream online a day before its release.

On the 3rd June 2016, Beartooth released another album titled "Aggressive", with the headlining track of the album posing the same name. In an interview with Kerrang! Magazine, Shomo stated that he felt that the album had a much happier outlook than previous album, Disgusting. That being said, he still cites that there are parts of the album that refer to the constant battle that he faces with clinical depression, and mentions that is shown in the song Find a Way. The songs Aggressive, Loser, Hated and Always Dead, were all released prior to the Album being released.

CLASS (2012–present)

Along with the announcement of Beartooth after departing from Attack Attack!, he also announced in 2012 that he started making electronic music under the name CLASS. In an interview with Altpress he expressed that he had always loved electronic music and had been creating such music since before he joined Attack Attack!. He self-released an EP consisting of 4 tracks on January 2, 2013. Since the release the project has remained inactive, but when asked about it he responded with "...I'm ready to go full-force with that. A few of the deals we're working on are addressing the whole thing."

Personal life

In 2012, he left Attack Attack! citing "horrible clinical depression" and revealed that he had been suicidal since middle school. Sometime that year, he married Fleur Shomo. In 2014 when interviewed by Kerrang! he stated that thanks to the success of his musical career he is moving into a new home where he will build a new sunlit studio to record his own music and produce others.
