Five-piece metalcore outfit Mouth for War has signed with MNRK Heavy for the release of its second full-length album in fall 2023.
Hailing from Colorado Springs, Colorado, the band released its debut LP, “Life Cast in Glass,” in 2021.
“Mouth for War is a great addition to the label and they have delivered an amazing record for us,” MNRK Heavy SVP of Rock & Metal Scott Givens said. “They create a lethal combination of metal/hardcore that we can’t wait to unleash.”
In celebration of its singing, Mouth for War has dropped its latest single and video, “Under the Gun.”
“Mouth for War is ecstatic to give you our new track ‘Under the Gun’ after such a long wait,” the band said. “We are undergoing a new era of sonic aggression and we chose our heaviest song yet to bring to you first. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”

Forged in 2019, Mouth for War put out its debut EP, “An Ear Kept to the Ground,” and immediately sunk its teeth into the world of touring that was unfortunately cut short by COVID-19. While the pandemic dragged other bands under, Mouth for War used the downtime to formulate its debut LP, “Life Cast in Glass,” a collection of grieving songs. Released on 1126 Records, the record helped propel the band’s notoriety and curated its next steps into becoming a national act. The band has since taken on the entire United States with bands such as Bodysnatcher, Boundaries and Zao, and has shared stages with Knocked Loose, Malevolence and others.
