Casper Skulls Celebrate an Ontario Park with "The Mouth"
Check out the video for the latest single from 'Knows No Kindness'
Published Oct 13, 2021Toronto's Casper Skulls have shared "The Mouth," the latest track off their upcoming album, Knows No Kindness, which will be released via Next Door Records on November 12.
Knows No Kindness is a deeply personal work — particularly for singer-guitarist Melanie St-Pierre, who draws on personal stories of growing up in Sudbury and Massey. Fittingly, "The Mouth" single gets its name from the Mouth Park, where St-Pierre regularly went as a child, noting the space holds generational significance. "The park has a bit of a legacy in my family," she said in an announcement. "My grandmother used to take my mother swimming there when she was young, and later my mother would take my sister and me."
St-Pierre explained how the park features in the Knows No Kindness album cover:
Every spring hundreds of trilliums grow along the dirt road leading to the park. The protest pictured in our album art, of which my grandmother was a big part, helped save the area from having nuclear waste dumped into it. I'm very grateful for this area and go often to check on it and sometimes bird watch.
The video that accompanies "The Mouth" shows the group performing with scribbling graphics floating around them.
The band's latest release is the third single from their upcoming record, joining tracks "Tommy" and "Thesis." Knows No Kindness follows its predecessor, Mercy Works, which dropped in 2017. Check out "The Mouth" below.
