In 2005, singer Lindsay Hail founded Forsaken Truth. The next couple of years were spent establishing a name and sound in the San Diego local music scene, playing at venues like Canes, Hennessey's, House of Blues, and the Roxy. 2007 was a transitional year, going from the former metal sound into a more alternative and acoustic style. The band still held the same dark and dramatic vibe that Forsaken Truth is known for. Much of the same material has been carried over as Lindsay currently works on her solo career.
