AFFLICTED BY DESIGN – New Single Out Today

Texas based industrial metallers Afflicted By Design are presenting us with their new single: a cover of ''This Is Not A Love Song''; a goth-industrial inspired version of the classic song by Public Image Ltd. and is the second single from the band's cover song project. For this cover Michael J. Carrasquillo (Slick Idiot, isol8ed) returned on drums, and reunited Sebastian with former Otto's Daughter bandmates Jacqueline Van Bierk on vocals and Jim Robbins on guitar solos. Afflicted By Design were formed in 2012 by S.A. Sebastian Gnolfo, who also stated something about this particular cover song for us: "I thought recording a cover song here and there would be a good way to keep awareness of Afflicted By Design and keep the band growing while giving me time to complete work on new, original music. While some bands do covers to be funny or ironic, when I decided to do this I decided that it had to be meaningful. The bands and songs that Afflicted By Design covers had to have influenced and inspired my musical upbringing. Recording "This Is Not A Love Song" was a special because it was the song that introduced me to Public Image Ltd. and to the world of post-punk; and it reunited me with my former Otto's Daughter bandmates. While writing and recording the next 2 Afflicted By Design EPs we'll be releasing more covers.'' The new single is available on iTunes, Spotify, Google, Amazon, Spotify, Rdio, Deezer and you can take a sneak peak of the cover over HERE. Link
