The LA-based rock trio Killed By Design consists of vocalist Kyle Spicer, bassist Billy Jones and drummer David Spreng. Jones and Spreng met while living in Boston - both coming up in the Boston music scene, while Spicer was doing the same in Los Angeles. The three became friends while working on a different project in 2006.

The group's passion for creating driving beats and clever harmony while boasting big vocals surrounded by lush guitars provides their unique and cinematic sound. After months of collaborating in their 2nd North Hollywood rehearsal space, after the 1st one burned to the ground, they have released the first of many EP's to be released this year.

Upon the completion of recording, longtime friend Bryce Martin was asked to fill the guitar slot. He adds enthusiastic textures and booming guitars to the mix creating a back-and-forth synergy within the band.

Their debut EP titled "Occulta Veritas", was produced by David Spreng, and mixed by Ken Andrews.

Released as an opening statement rather than an unyielding sonic identity, Occulta Veritas is a distinctive introduction to the band, and a well-crafted preview of things to come.
