In April 1992, the band traveled to Memphis in search of a cheap recording studio. The band was booked to play the Crossroads Music Festival the very same week, thanks to a very supportive engineer named Doug Easley, who had produced Mutha's Day Out's first demo. In the same performance, Mutha's Day Out's first, a representative from Chrysalis Records was present, there to see another band. However, the representative at Chrysalis liked Mutha's Day Out so much they were offered the contract instead of the other band on the spot. They went to the studio to record their first and only album, "My Soul is Wet." The album was released on October 19th, 1993.

When the band first came together, Mikal was 20 years old, Brice was 18 years old, Chuck was 17 years old, Rodney was 17 years old, and Jeff was 15 years old. They were the youngest rock band to be signed by such a major label in years.

Mutha's Day Out toured the United States and Europe from 1993 to 1994. They were opening for bands like Jackyl, Sugartooth, and the Bulletboys. The band sped up all of their songs live, and Jeff, at one point during the tour, was in a leg brace, but was insistent on playing. Even with the leg brace on, he was hobbling around stage. During their tour in the United States, they stayed in cheap hotels to lower the cost of the record company's tour bill.

People in Paris liked them so much, that when they played there, extra security had to be called in. A live E.P. of the show at the Virgin Megastore in Paris was released, but in limited quantities. You had to be at the show to receive a copy, and it is so rare, that, to this day, the band does not have a copy of it.

Mutha's Day Out received their big break when they appeared in the 1995 movie "Mortal Kombat," during Scene 2, inside the techno bar, while Sonya Blade searches for Kano amongst a large crowd moshing to them. Their song, "What U See," is featured on the soundtrack to Mortal Kombat. It is looped three times to form a four minute song. The looped song also features a short cowbell intro and the removal of the foul language the song had originally contained. Apparently, Christopher Lambert, the actor who played Rayden, liked them. Their management was getting all sorts of calls about them. However, they were broken up at that time.

There are other weird facts about Mutha's Day Out. Brice Stephens is the one on the album cover, in the background, and the girl in front is a friend of his. The Batesville police even tried using the "after-curfew" excuse to shut down the video shooting of the My Soul is Wet video, even though her parents were present at the shooting. Mikal Moore had been tossed out of his home in 1994 and was living in a Motel 6 because "he couldn't afford anything better."

There has been a rumor that there is a second Mutha's Day Out album out there, with new material, and a live version of Locked. It is apparently called I Am Dead. It was supposedly released in 1992, which cannot be possible because Mutha's Day Out's first album was released in 1993. Or else it might be one large demo or an album they produced before being signed to a label. This is unconfirmed, but is more than likely a hoax.

The apparent reason for their break-up is that Mikal Moore, the vocalist, frontman, and co-writer of every one of Mutha's Day Out's songs, fell in love with a United Kingdom fan, and that drew him away from the band. Without Mikal, the band was useless. This has yet to be confirmed.

Today, Mikal Moore is in a band called Gazer, in Arkansas. Brice Stephens has returned to Batesville, Arkansas after a 2-year stay in Florida and is jamming with Rodney Moffitt. Chuck Schaaf formed a band called Deadbird with his brother, Phillip Schaaf, in Little Rock, Arkansas. Jeff Morgan now plays drums for a band called Rwake, out of Fayetteville, Arkansas.
