Shout the Truth was the first album featuring England-native Ross Kenyon, besides the group's 2008 demo recording. Two of the songs from the demo were also re-recorded for this full-length; "Zeal" and "The Bigger Picture". The album was also the last album to feature original member and lead guitarist, Aaron VanZutphen, and was the only album to feature drummer, Arin Ilejay.
The re-issue of Shout the Truth was released on September 8, 2009 through Tragic Hero Records, as opposed to the album's original pressing over Science Records. For this re-recording, Confide went back to Cameron Webb's studio to re-record the clean vocals with new drummer and vocalist Joel Piper, with an exception for "Such Great Heights". Piper only recorded vocals for these songs and does not play the drums on any of the tracks on the re-release. The drums on all other tracks are the original drums recorded on the original album by former drummer Arin Ilejay. The original lead guitar tracks were also used from the old mix, as recorded by former guitarist Aaron VanZutphen, except the guitars on "Such Great Heights" which were recorded by new member Joshua Paul. This re-release was also last album to feature the original member/bassist Billy Pruden.
The album also features 3 bonus tracks: "Role Reversal", "I Never Saw This Coming" (both recorded in 2008 as b-sides) and "Such Great Heights", a cover of the song by electronic group, The Postal Service. The cover of "Such Great Heights", which was recorded by Joel Piper at Joel Piper's recording studio in Fresno, Ca, became an internet phenomenon in 2009. Two music videos were released for this album: "Such Great Heights" and "I Never Saw This Coming".
