Too True is the third studio album by American rock band Dum Dum Girls, released in January 2014 via Sup Pop Records.

Dum Dum Girls are an American rock band, formed in 2008. It began as the bedroom recording project of singer and songwriter Dee Dee (née Kristin Gundred). She is currently based in New York City. The name is a double homage to The Vaselines' album Dum Dum and the Iggy Pop song "Dum Dum Boys".

Dee Dee began to write Too True while touring for End of Daze, and in November 2012, she began to record the album with producer Richard Gottehrer at Pet Sounds at East West Studios in Hollywood. However, Dee Dee soon realized her voice was damaged from touring, which halted recording. During this break, she rewrote lead single Lost Boys & Girls Club and slowly recorded the vocals herself back in New York City.

The song Are You Okay? was originally written and intended for Ronnie Spector but Gottehrer convinced Dee Dee to keep it for herself.

Too True was compared to British alternative rock bands like Siouxsie And The Banshees, The Cure, The Stone Roses, Suede and The Jesus And Mary Chain. The production on the album featured heavy use of reverb and multiple layers of guitars. The album was produced by Richard Gottehrer and The Raveonettes' Sune Rose Wagner.

The first single Lost Boys & Girls Club was released in December 2013, the second single Rimbaud Eyes in January 2014, and a video for Too True to Be Good was released in February 2014.  A promotional video was shot for Under These Hands.

Upon its release, Too True received generally positive reviews from critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 72 based on 37 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".

The album reached #138 on the UK Albums charts.

This LP Record is pressed on 180 Gram Vinyl and includes a printed inner sleeve and digital download code, pressed in the US.
