Reissue: The Lords of the New Church - The Gospel Truth

Today sees the release of the first official boxset by the 80's post-punk rockers. "The Gospel Truth" is a 3 CD / 1 DVD collection of rarities and live material. Doing the honors is the UK based, who have given CD/DVD rarities reissue treatments to Lou Reed, The Stooges, Roxy Music, Heaven 17, and a countless list of others. All featured material was recorded from 1982-1988 and comes nearly 23 years after the death of vocalist, Stiv Bators. Bators died on June 3, 1990 following complications from being hit by a taxi in Paris. This tragedy would bring the bands' activity to an end but the music still lives on.
