It's been awhile since I dropped an update on the Mouthpiece "Can't Kill What's Inside" complete discography that's due to be released this October on Revelation Records, so I thought I'd take a minute to do that now.
The entire re-mixing process is complete, as is the mastering. We were able to track down a live set from the soundboards of a show we played at the Chameleon Club in Lancaster PA with Turning Point and Vision. On that soundboard tape were a few songs that never saw a studio recording ("Never Enough, "Stick To It" and "Massive Outro"), so just for the sake of completeness, we thought it would be cool to include them. We also have a full live soundboard set from a show we played in NYC at CBGB's with Killing Time in 1996. Surprisingly enough, once mastered, both live recordings sound great, obviously the CB's set sounding the best. With all the studio recordings and the live unreleased material, we're pretty close to maxing out the available space on a CD, so we're trying to determine how and where to fit the CB's live set. Hopefully when all is said and done, we're able to squeeze it all in.
We're wrapping up the layouts right now and I gotta say it should be a pretty incredible package once complete. We've managed to cram tons of photos, most never before seen. We've also gathered a complete list of every show Mouthpiece played from from very early 1990 through 1996. Once the typography is finalized and the last few photos are put into place, everything will be sent off to Revelation. The plan is to have everything in Revs hands before the end of June. We'll also be designing a couple new t-shirt designs for Revelation, as well as posters, stickers, pins, etc. So expect some brand new Mouthpiece merch from Revelation later this summer. -Tim DCXX
