"...(And That's No Lie)" is synthpop trio Heaven 17's third single of 1985 from the album How Men Are. It was written by all three members. The single was released early 1985 and peaked at #52 in the UK, spending 5 weeks on the chart. This was the band's first single to miss the top 50 since 1983. A promotional video was created for the single.

Allmusic mentioned the track in the review of "How Men Are", "Highlights are numerous, including the very long but very wonderful "And That's No Lie." A strong melody, stunning vocals from Glenn Gregory, and tight production equal a fascinating glimpse into the human struggle." The track is also recommended by allmusic.

The 12" single was released as a series of five separate records, though the only difference was the design of the sleeve.

The "The Heaven 17 Megamix" which appeared on the 12" version of this single includes previous tracks "This Is Mine", "Crushed by the Wheels of Industry", "Height of The Fighting (He La Hu)", "Penthouse and Pavement", "Temptation", "I'm Your Money" and "Play to Win".

In 2007, backing vocals by British singing group Afrodiziak appeared in "No More Lies", a house track by German composer/producer falconi with much more "Enhanced Danceability".
