Trust But Verify has gone through several line-up changes, over their reign chronological members have included, Daniel Nocito, Larry McHugh, Craig Medlin, Adam Long, Andrew Pruett, Avery Bradley and Sam Watts. The original line-up featured Danny singing and playing rythem guitar with Craig playing lead, Adam playing bass and Larry playing drums. Craig eventually left to pursue more important life ventures, and we discovered that Adam was an amazing vocalist, so we decided to change around. We decided that Adam should solely handle vocals, so the search began for a replacement bassist and guitarist. We then met Andrew who melted our faces immediately when he picked up his guitar, then discover Avery who thumped his way into our metal hearts. After some time of performing and our initial release, Avery left to pursuit college, we then brought Sam on board who really filled in some spaces. Avery excelled in harmonies/back-up-singing where as Sam excelled in screams that contrasted nicely with Danny/Adams screams. TBV always had 4 vocalists at a given time, this made enthralling harmonies and back-and-forth scream sessions.
