Vancouver punk rockers Living With Lions just released their sophomore album today. It's called Holy Shit, is subtitled “The Poo Testament,” and has liner notes that recreate the Ascension with Christ portrayed as a turd. Oh, and the album is sponsored by the Canadian government.

The album is designed to resemble a Bible, complete with liner notes written as verses, a cracked binding, and yellowed pages. The last line of the band's acknowledgements reads, “We acknowledge the financial support of the Government of Canada through the Department of Canadian Heritage.”

Oh, it gets worse: Not only is the Canadian Government giving punks money so they can depict Jesus Christ as, literally, a piece of shit, but they're also supporting a band that sounds like bad Bad Religion (“Worse Religion”?).
