Afflicted By Design Releases "Warm And Pretty Lies" Music Video
Austin, TX - Afflicted By Design released their new music video for "Warm and Pretty Lies," from the latest Ep "Lies, Lies, Lies!”, on Sunday Dec. 3 with a premiere at ReGen Magazine. The video was written and directed by Ken Morales of Empyrean Motion Pictures and based on a story by Afflicted By Design's S.A. Sebastian Gnolfo. The video can be seen at the band's YouTube channel at https://www.youtube.com/afflictedbydesign.
The song was written about the lies people tell each other in a new relationship. Influenced by the Human League, "Warm and Pretty Lies" was recorded as a duet and features Rona Rougeheart from SINE on vocals with Sebastian. "The song is about the 'nice' lies that we tell each other," says Afflicted By Design's S.A. Sebastian, "but, for the video I wanted to go dark, and tell the story of a couple who are each serial killers, trying to hide that dark secret from each other."
Ken ran with Sebastian's idea and wrote the story - a twist on the movie "Mr. and Mrs. Smith" - and filmed it with a nod to 70s horror films. Sebastian had planned on making the music video shortly after the release of the Lies, Lies, Lies! Ep earlier in the year, but it took a while to find the right director. "After months of meeting directors who were only interested in how much money I had to spend, I finally found Ken. It was exciting and refreshing to meet someone that was excited to make films and excited about telling stories, and shared a passion for horror films.” “Warm and Pretty Lies” video was filmed guerrilla-style in 2 days in Austin, TX and stars the Austin-based actors Christopher Herod and Chloe Cox as the serial killer couple and Stephanie Slayton as the victim.
On "Warm and Pretty Lies" Sebastian is joined by former Otto's Daughter bandmate Fred Fata on lead guitar and guitars synth, Rom Gov of Seek Irony on drums, and Rona Rougeheart of SINE and Dead Love Club on vocals. Sebastian is currently working on a new EP, with plans for a 2018 release.
