It was August of 2009 when the five musicians from the Baltimore/Hagerstown, Maryland area came together.
Morgan Wright on drums, formerly toured as fill-in drummer for Oh, Sleeper of Solid State Records, also Sleeper’s Awake. Justin Huffman on guitar, also recorded with Sleeper’s Awake on the Uprising Records. On bass, is Armand Vincent, on guitar Jered Youngbar, formerly of the recording group Aneirin. And on vocals is Shawn Spann, who was the lead vocal for the group Erison.
The group is currently signed to Sumerian Records and have released two albums through the label.
A Plea For Purging have never been a band to stay in the proverbial box. The debut of their new album The Life & Death of A Plea For Purging proves, yet again, how versatile and multifaceted these musicians really are. The excellent brutality that Plea has cultivated over the years is present on this follow up to the critically acclaimed Marriage of Heaven and Hell, but also on the new album, existing in perfect harmony with the metallic hardcore they’ve become known for, are some intense acoustic tracks.
