Pierced is seven folks from cajun country, born and raised to rock. Pierced: Worth is a soundtrack for soul searchers, with songs like 'out of here' and 'what are you looking for' talking of that deep longing for intimacy with God, to the upbeat anthem 'Soulja', written about being a true believer and follower of Christ. The name Pierced was inspired by Isaiah's prophecy of the sacrafice that Jesus would be for us, and the novel 'Pierced by a Sword' written by author Bud McFarlane, whose words have touched many hearts, including our own. The title of his book is based on the Gospel story of the Presentation: 'and Simeon blessed them and said to Mary His Mother, 'Behold, this child is destined for the fall and rise of many in Israel, and to be a sign that will be contradicted, and you yourself a sword will pierce so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.''- Luke 2:34-35.
