Los Angeles based rock-outfit 3 By Design have wrapped up recording on their sophomore release Enemy due out on May 2. The band just released the first single “Man at the Wheel” with a video for the song coming soon. You can check out the song below!
3 By Design is—Kevin Hicklin (guitar,) Frank Mullis (bass,) Kent Diimmel (drums,) and Jon Goodhue (voice.) Formed by long term friends Frank and Kevin, the band took shape in late 2014 when they completed the line up finding Jon and Kent through of all places Craigslist. With the line-up solid the band immediately set to writing music and released their first EP Under The Surface independently last year and began pounding the pavement in the LA rock scene.
Their upcoming independent EP, Enemy delivers one hard-hitting anthem after another driven by powerful guitars, aggressive drum beats, poignant lyrics, and soaring vocals. The first single “Man at the Wheel” speeds full steam ahead with a barreling riff and unshakable chant. The title track “Enemy” matches that energy with another immediately catchy chorus and lyrically goes a little deeper for the group.
3 By Design will be playing at LA’s Boardner’s on April 21st and Lander’s Brew Co Desert Moon MetalFest on April 23.
