"Austin's The Gospel Truth have been knocking around since 2007, but it's
only been in the past two years that vocalist/saxophonist/keyboard
player Mark Tonucci's quartet have really caught fire.
All-malicious-intent in a way that runs contrary to this city’s party
vibe, they've emerged as one of the town’s top live bands in the
process. Not only is it hard to come up with a regional precedent for
The Gospel Truth, it’s almost as tough to ID an album as out of time as
‘A Lonely Man Does Foolish Things’. The Flesh Eaters’ ‘A Minute To Pray,
A Second To Die’, the Toiling Midgets’ ‘Sea Of Unrest’ or maybe The
Black Snakes' 'Crawl' come to mind, but that trio stuck out like sore
cocks in their respective eras, too
In this case, you've got a purposeful, unusually deft ensemble fronted
by a singer who comes out of his shell in the best possible way when you
put a microphone in his hands. Featuring an all-star squad of Austin
rockers (Patrick Travis of The Golden Boys, SsserpentssS, Jeremy Steen
of the Flesh Lights and Nazi Gold, ex-When Dinosaurs Ruled The Earth
drummer Brandon Bennett Crowe), The Gospel Truth are on tour shortly
after this album's June release."
