A band a day...Eyes Set to Kill

Eyes Set to Kill is raising Arizona. I'm not generally into a lot of post-hardcore/screamo stuff, but there's a certain "I don't know what..." about Eyes Set to Kill.

Eyes Set to Kill is...
Alexia Rodriguez: Vocals, Guitar, Piano
Anissa Rodriguez: Bass
Brandon Anderson: VOCALS!!!!!, Keyboards
"Metal" Greg Kerwin: Guitar
Caleb Clifton: Drums

Flyleaf, Kittie, and a sprinkle of Killswitch Engage meets Hawthorne Heights (RIP Casey).

A short history lesson on Eyes Set to Kill is that they'd actually used to be a six-piece band with Lindsay Vogt, a different lead singer. They formed in 2004 and in 2006 really started to make a name for themselves on the various music networking sites with their debut EP called When Silence is Broken, The Night Is Torn. They've had shows with Papa Roach, Kittie, Walls of Jericho, and In This Moment.

It's not very often that you find a post-hardcore band that's influenced by The Spice Girls and N*Sync...but somewhere the dancing got uncoordinated and Lindsay left the band sometime in 2007.

It's crazy because at around the same time, they signed a record deal on Koch that allowed them their own imprint.

Enter Reach. Alexia took the lead of the band. Normally, when a band loses a lead singer, they take the band with them. The band has actually only grown stronger turning what was once a regional act into a national one.

They are opening on a nationwide tour in October and November.

In the meantime, check out some more videos featuring Eyes Set to Kill including Darling and Liar in the Glass.
