"In Truth By Moonlight, Maciel's struggles from within a culture of alcohol and dilemmas with or without women, dominate from start to finish. A journey he insists on taking us on by way of the bottle. Maciel highlights man's universal fear of the moment... when the bottle goes empty, or when a woman has left a shared bed at 3am."

"Indie rock frontman, Gabriel Maciel of The Trims, dives into the literary world with a collection of poems, prose, and lyrics that takes you through sex and alcohol driven nights, wrapped in a heart shaped box. The musician/poet shows an unapologetic and graphic writing style. At times you'll feel intrusive to his most personal moments and at others, like you're having a drink right next to him. Either way, you'll be left feeling enthralled and inspired. Truth By Moonlight is a rare look into an artist's most personal inner workings and most vulnerable moments.
