1987 The Truth – Weapons Of Love

Weapons Of Love is the second album by The Truth, released in 1987 on IRS Records.

The Truth is a British rock band, active from 1982 to 1989. They reformed in 2012 for occasional live performances. The group was formed by Dennis Greaves, formerly of Nine Below Zero, and Mick Lister in early 1982. They went through several line-up changes, but Greaves and Lister remained members throughout the group’s run. They released several singles before their first album, Playground, was issued in 1985. The 1987 release Weapons of Love marked a stylistic change, and was their most commercially successful release in the United States. The title track was a hit single in the U.S., reaching #7 on the rock charts and #65 on the Billboard Hot 100. Several songs from the album were also used in the 1987 cult sci-fi film The Hidden. After 1989’s Jump, they disbanded.
