to record six songs with Justin Moore shortly after

Mayfly announced its end in March of 2017.

Their music has been compared to bands like

Finch, Story of the Year, Further Seems Forever, Chevelle, Incubus,

Dead Poetic, Project 86, Every Time I Die, Blindside, Beartooth and Norma Jean.

  All songs were composed by Jared Lacey, who after discovering that the biblical Hebrew meaning of his first name was “to descend”, created the name Poetic Descent.

Lyrically, his songs touch on topics such as the existence of God, addiction, his mother’s death, domestic abuse, martyrdom and homosexuality.

These songs were released as singles online on all major streaming and download sites starting in March of 2018 with the final song being released in June of 2018.

Since then, their debut single, Close Encounter, has had much success on the radio staying in the top ten on the Christian Rock National Airplay Billboard chart six weeks in a row from May through June. In November of 2018, the duo re-entered the studio with Jake Bryant (former guitarist for Dangerkids) and Shaun O’Shaughnessy (Encore Recording Studios in Dayton, OH) to record a new single titled Pariah which they plan to release by spring of 2019.

We are about to release a new song on March 29th called Pariah. It is about pride and the damage it can do to us and the people around us. This song was originally written by Joel Holycross, our current manager and guitarist in our previous band, Mayfly. He gave us permission to record our own interpretation of the song and his voice is featured at the end of it. Jake Bryant (former guitarist of Dangerkids) and Shaun O’Shaughnessy (Bass guitarist for Inferious) produced this single in Dayton, Ohio. I hope you enjoy the song!
