Three weeks ago, we brought you news of an impending split 7-inch between two of Ohio’s brightest lights, Reverse The Curse and My Mouth Is The Speaker. Two weeks ago, we brought you the A-side of that split 7-inch, Reverse The Curse’s incredible reworking of “Carer” from their most recent album Existent, out now on Escapist Records. Now today, we’re bringing you the official video of that acoustic version, where you can see the band hard at work in the studio creating the mood for this reinterpretation. Vocalist/guitarist Ed Starcher explains:

“This version of ‘Carer’ is the original idea for the song. It wasn’t until we fell into writing the electrical version’s intro that the song kinda went away from the feel of this version. I always enjoyed playing this song this way too though, so we decided to track it. We spent two breezy days tracking with the wonderful Adam Korbesmeyer.”

The only way to get the Reverse The Curse/My Mouth Is The Speaker split 7-inch is to attend the Escapist Records 10th anniversary showcase on August 14 in Cleveland (tickets).
