Feeling a bit camera shy


The Affected is a multi-genre band from Dallas, TX. At the present date, the project is focusing on finishing its initial full-length, tentatively titled "Rock Is Dead" and playing shows occasionally.

The music of the band stresses unconventionality, while maintaining a strong song-based approach at its core. Some of the important influences of the band include Radiohead, Sonic Youth, Pixies, Beatles, Nirvana and Punk just to name a few, though The Affected refuse to be limited by that. The goal is to make new music, especially avoiding any tried and true formulas of rock, as those can be particularly confining.

The band seeks to spread its word through the use of free or low-cost music and merchandise, eventually hoping to achieve a level of success that allows them to focus purely on this project. Whether this means label support or not, the Affected will remain undeterred in its quest to "not do the same old thing".
