Welcome to Nuclear Blast’s Artist Profile Series. Meet Stitch D. He sings for THE DEFILED. He’s English, he smiles a lot, and he escaped to London when he was 18 “in the hopes to start a rock ‘n’ roll band.” Yeah, he could probably name every actor who’s played Dr. Who, but we didn’t quiz him on that. Having grown up on the Isle of Wight, he shares what he misses about home, working in a Camden Town shop named “Cyberdog” with his band mates and talks about his eunuch cat named Maurice, his first musical memory, and the bad-assery of Breaking Bad.
