Eyes Set To Kill
A White Lotus traditionally represents a rebirth. Just like the beautiful flower, Eyes Set To Kill has gone through a metamorphosis. After years of being forced to conceal their aspirations, the Phoenix, Arizona-based collective finally reveal their true identity on their upcoming fourth studio album appropriately entitled White Lotus.
"It's a symbolic name," Alexia Rodriguez states. "We have a clear mind set, we have purity and we know exactly what we want to do with our music. We know who we are and where we want to go, and so we wanted to use a white lotus to symbolize how confident and focused we are. It's a leap for us because we have a clearer vision of what we want."
Down to a more concentrated four-piece, Eyes Set To Kill slowly drowned out their screamo vibe and have transformed into a metal band led by Rodriguez's piercing vocal prowess. Tie that in with stellar musicianship, mature songwriting and an adrenaline-charged resonance, and it's clear this explosive quartet is on the verge of redefining the genre.
Those sentiments are further backed up by smash singles like "The Secrets Between," a heavy single about withholding the truth from a significant other; "Forget," an intense ditty about the desire to erase your memory from terrible experience with an ex-lover; and "Where I Wanna Be," a love song with a dark edge.
It's a new and improved style, and they've spent years getting to this point.
Formed in 2003 by the Rodriguez sisters, Eyes Set To Kill's passionate music connected with fans early on and led them to becoming one of MySpace.com's top unsigned screamo bands in 2006. The group signed with BreakSilence/Suburban Noize Records the following year and release three critically acclaimed studio efforts – 2008's Reach, 2009's The World Outside and 2011's Broken Frames.
Frustrated with the label politics, and pressure to withhold their identity, Eyes Set To Kill decided to break away and become the band they were destined to be. The metal quartet will independently release White Lotus through a joint venture between their own imprint Forsee Records and Maphia Entertainment.
Eyes Set To Kill is making a career on their terms and the versatile White Lotus is a testament to their craft. "I've found that the more unique people are, the more unique their tastes are gonna be," Rodriguez says. "So I think people that are diverse and are into all types of music, they'll like this album because it's diverse, but a lot heavier."
Now, it's time for this White Lotus to bloom.
Girl On Fire
Formed in the summer of 2007, Seattle band Girl On Fire has worked tirelessly to build a name for themselves. From playing Vans Warped Tour two years in a row, to playing with national acts such as: Saosin, Aiden, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, and Scary Kids Scaring Kids. Girl On Fire is also no stranger to the road, having booked multiple West Coast and Northwest tours over the last two years. This five-piece group collaborates to create intense and uniquely melodic rock songs spanning through a handful of genres. The band attributes much of its popularity not only to their infectious music, but also to their ability to be personable with their fans. 2009 saw Girl On Fire release an EP and record their first music video. The band spent the better part of December 2009 in the studio with producer William Francis (Aiden) working on their upcoming full-length. In the spring, Girl On Fire plans to continue writing their upcoming full-length, as well as hit the road again.
