Hailing from Southeast Missouri, George Kester (lead guitar/vocals), Tyler Thornton (drums), Ryzhell Miller (bass), and Joshua Morse (lead vocals) started playing music together in the spring of 2014. Kester and Thornton sat down to write and record the bands first E.P. “Sacrifice” in Kesters basement and The Doubted was born. After playing a few shows in the St. Louis area and finding some success with a unique metal sound, the band brought on close friend and guitarist Chris Melvin (rhythm guitar/vocals),hired band manager Brent Smith, and made the move to Los Angeles, California.

This combination of musicians brought together a music that is unapologetically different. Influenced by Avenged Seven-Fold, Periphery, Chon, and Breaking Benjamin, they wanted to bring a sound to heavy metal that has never been seen before. A sound that has evolved every year since they began playing together in that basement just five years ago. From “Unveil me,” to “The More You Know,” they have a something to offer all lovers of great music! You can find all of their music streaming on Spotify, YouTube, and Apple Music at The Doubted.

The Doubted are practicing their craft and working on an album that they hope to release later in 2019. The Doubted are currently unsigned.
