Brief history of The Truth
[ See Wikipedia for the most up-to-date history of The Truth. ]

The Truth were an Australian rock band in the mid 1990s.

Their final line up was Nicky Bomba (drums), Michael Caruana (keyboards), Mick Girasole (bass), Tony Kopa (vocals) and Geoff Wells (guitars).

The band gained popularity through solid gigging around Melbourne and from the song My Heavy Friend receiving play on radio station Triple J.

Touring their first album, The Truth, the band had no bass player. Bass lines were provided by Michael who played gigs with a keyboard axe.

For the band's second album Headspace, Mick Girasole was added on bass and the band rebranded as simply Truth.

The band broke up toward the end of 1997 for reasons undisclosed.

Nicky Bomba went on to form the band Bomba who continue to have success. Michael Caruana plays keyboards with Bomba.

Geoff Wells went on to play as a session musician for Daryl Braithwaite, Tina Arena and John Farnham. John performed one of Geoff's songs, The Way on his album 33 1/3. The Way is track 4 on the album The Truth.

Tony Kopa is now a 'permanent fixture' with Jon Stevens when he plays his solo shows. Tony also appeared on Jon's "The Works" album as part of the Liberation Blue Acoustic Series. He also appears on a semi-regular basis with Black Dogs.

The Truth returned to the stage in 2003 for a one off gig at The Espy. Talk of further one off gigs is unconfirmed.
