Show Me Your Tears is the final album to be released to date by Frank Black and the Catholics. The album employs a wide range of guests, including piano and an arrangement by maverick composer Van Dyke Parks on the final track. Within months of the album's release, it was announced that Black would be participating in a Pixies reunion, and since that time, the Catholics have effectively been defunct.
