Prick Tunes: The Gospel Truth Are Coming to a Town Near You

With their debut LP finally available for public consumption this Tuesday, The Gospel Truth--one of Austin's finest bands--will finally take to the highways of this nation's midsection, bringing their dark and raucous brand of defiantly unique songsmithery to your backyard.

Having spun A Lonely Man Does Foolish Things around more times than I can remember, the record that was six years in the making is every bit the album anyone who had been fortunate enough to see them as they bounced around town as often as their jam-packed schedules allowed could have imagined. Featuring Mark Tonucci on vocals, keys, harmonica, and sax, Patrick Travis (of The Golden Boys and SsserpentssS) on guitar, Brandon Bennett Crowe (formerly of When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth) on drums, and Jeremy Steen (of Flesh Lights and Nazi Gold) on bass, The Gospel Truth have finally transformed their wicked shows into a stellar fucking album. But you needn't take my word for it, as former WMFU DJ/part-owner of Matador Records Gerard Cosloy was so impressed with the band that he released their LP on his boutique label 12XU, making them labelmates with the likes of Rebecca Gates and the Consortium and The Golden Boys.

As they hit the road for the first time, they'll be doing so with David 'Lyrch' Petro (of SsserpentssS, The Gory Details, and Debt on bass).
