The Persuaded is a high energy Christian Rock/Metal band formed in 2010 out of the middle Tennessee area. The band is currently working on their debut full length album tilted “Dawn Of Destruction.”
The inception of the band came about when vocalist/guitarist, Josh Honea decided to take a stand against depression, anxiety and suicide and start a band that writes songs about complicated life experiences and give hope in Jesus Christ through them.
Recruiting original/current drummer Trent Russell, The Persuaded began their journey, releasing two EP’s and a single independently. having had several member changes over the years since the inception of the band; the current lineup formed when Guitarist Cody Phillips offered to fill in on bass and guitar when needed after original bassist parted ways with the band in early 2015. By the end of the year, Cody had joined the band full time on lead guitar. Shortly after they met a local vocalist named Joseph Vargas in Nashville who offered to fill the bass position and assume the role as co-vocalist in January 2016.
Thus began the career of the current The Persuaded lineup. The band has since released two singles, toured extensively, performed alongside some of the biggest names in the industry and signed with RockFest Records in 2018.
The newest release, a highly anticipated debut full length record titled “Dawn Of Destruction” is currently in production and set to release in 2018
