    For over ten years now Guttermouth have brought their raunchy brand of mayhem to an ever-growing audience of snotty punk kids across the globe. Collectively, the members of Guttermouth have been arrested, shot at, threatened, burned and banned from Canada. They have given their all to the high art of punk rock and with the release of Covered With Ants, the band that just keeps giving a little more.

    Mark Adkins has said that the divorce of his parents was the best thing that ever happened to him. It allowed his parents to overlook the parties he and his friends would throw in the family's backyard. It was there that Mark would discover two of his lifelong obsessions; alcohol and punk rock.

    Out of these booze fests, Mark and his buddy Derek started playing music which embodied the crass humor of teenage boys and the racist /misogynistic suburban world they lived in. They christened their band Guttermouth, and then broke up.

    A few months later Mark and Derek wanted Scott and Jamie to join their band and they decided to continue under the name "Guttermouth." One of them knew Clint, who became the bass player and the Guttermouth we all know and love was formed. Thanks to their numerous friends, Guttermouth was booked into some of the best backyards in southern California; they even released an album called entitled Full Length Album.

    Four years later, a strange thing happened. A punk band from Cypress, CA called the Offspring put out Smash, sold 8 million albums, and made people think punk rock could make them rich. Backyard parties turned into clubs, clubs into theaters, and theaters into arenas. Guttermouth found themselves being considered a real band.

    Having inked a deal with Offspring front man Dexter Holland's label Nitro, Guttermouth took full-advantage of the newfound spotlight. The band jumped on the road with the Offspring for their first ever US tour and released a new album Friendly People. They shocked and offended the hordes of music lovers who turned out to see the radio-friendly Offspring and instead got Guttermouth shoving apple cores in their assholes. They started riots, got arrested and caused problems everywhere they went, and the kids loved it. Guttermouth went on to release five more albums with Nitro, and solidified their newfound fan base with their always-amazing live show, before ending their deal with a contractually-fulfilling live album.

    In 2000, the band signed with Epitaph to release Covered With Ants. Their latest album is a no holds barred attack that manages to fly the middle finger in the face of just about everyone. Guttermouth fearlessly bite into the hand that feeds, taking the piss out of their own fans on songs like "I Won't See You In The Pit", in which Adkins calls for punks everywhere to "Join the rank you're fighting and you will see/take over from the inside/45 minutes just to put up your hawk/oh boy does it look good and don't you look smart/you can sing about change but what's the f--king point".

    Covered With Ants manages to bring self-loathing and disappointment to a new level of entertainment. Their honesty is not only refreshing it is a hysterical ride through the world of a group of guys who just never grew up.

    Like we said before, it's been over ten years and Guttermouth still shows no signs of slowing down. How much longer can this weird ride last?
