Arizona metallers Eyes Set To Kill are currently on the road touring with Supergroup and labelmates Kill Devil Hill.
They have been touring extensively in recent months with bands such as In This Moment, Scar The Martyr as well as KDH. They also played a date in Jakarta, Indonesia this summer which was a career highlight for them.
The band is celebrating their 10 year anniversary and is supporting their latest effort “Masks” which was released on 9.17.13 via Century Media Records with whom the band has just inked a new record deal as of last year. The album was produced by Steve Evetts.
“Masks” is the bands first release since 2011’s White Lotus. It is their fifth Studio Album and second featuring the current line-up. The album has received positive reviews and I would definitely recommend you give it a shot.
The band has released a new video on YouTube for the first single “Infected”. The video was released on 9.5.13 and has already amassed nearly 210,000 views in just over 2 months.
The band also did a 28 minute set for EMG.TV which was posted on 9.25.13 and has just surpassed 50,000 views. The set can be viewed here.
They made a pit stop at Planet Rock in Battle Creek, Michigan on 11.21.13 and totally killed it, playing a set featuring mainly tracks from the new disc.
Sisters and founding members Alexia and Anissa Rodriguez were kind enough to chat with us after their kick ass set and discuss what the band has been up to, the new disc, making videos and the future of ESTK. Check it out:
In addition to doing the band thing each member has other interests that keep them busy in down time during their rigorous touring schedule.
For Instance, Anissa makes custom shirts for fans on site and also makes jewelry which she sells on her Etsy page.
Alexia does custom art which is available for purchase at the shows.
Caleb Clifton does custom artwork on his drumheads which can be purchased at the gigs.
Cisko Miranda has recently teamed up with Music Over Matter Clothing for the brands first collaboration tee.
NRR would like to thank the band for their time and wish them the best of luck with the new release and in 2014. Hopefully they will come back to town soon. If they do, be there.
A special thanks goes out to the everyone at Planet Rock in Battle Creek for bringing this tour to town and being such gracious hosts.
