Can you be emotional and still kick ass? The Pleading say, HELL YES. This band from East Nashville/Clarksville, Tennessee, are emo as all get out and heavier than most bands out there. Comprised of J.Cease Owens – Vocals | Brandon Sather – Drums | Justin Peaytt – Guitar | Matt Robertson – Guitar | Dewayne Henson – Bass, The Pleading show that heavy doesn’t mean shallow. J. Cease Owens has a voice like Eddie Vedder without the posturing. This band is good, they are damned good. One of the best alt/heavy metal/grunge bands I have ever heard, period. Check these guys out: you won’t be sorry. Your mind and body will love you. And your ears will bleed. What more do you want?
