Last Tuesday while performing at the Aftershock Bar & Grill in Kansas, Eyes Set To Kill bass player Anissa Rodriguez was taken to the hospital for problems with her eye.
She was later diagnosed with a blood clot behind her left eye and was hospitalized until yesterday when the doctor let her go home back to Arizona, but she will be on bed rest for the next couple of weeks.
The band has now officially cancelled the remainder of upcoming tour dates in July as a result and hope to get back on the road and make up shows soon. Singer/guitarist and sister Alexia Rodriguez has released this statement:
"Eyes Set To Kill must unfortunately cancel the rest of our tour dates in July due to the recent discovery of a blood clot behind my sister Anissa's eye. I have witnessed my sister go through some painful procedures and I am thankful that I have had the chance to be by her side through it all. The doctor said she is going to need a couple weeks to recover and I will continue to stay by her side to help her back to health.
"We want to thank all the fans for their love and understanding. We also hope to make up for our cancelled appearances somehow, someway. This past week has been a scary journey but I am just happy I could be here for her through the most excruciating experience and we are both so thankful to have been reading all of the love from our devoted fans and family. I truly believe their prayers helped her spirits and sped up her healing process."

Eyes Set To Kill has released the "Infected" single, which comes off the band's forthcoming album "Masks," set to hit stores September 17th on Century Media Records.
In the time leading up to pre-production and the recording of forthcoming album "Masks," Eyes Set To Kill decided to hunker down and demo two of the group's strongest new songs, "True Colors" and "Nothing Left to Say."
"Those two songs served as a blueprint for the entire record," explains singer, songwriter, and guitarist Alexia Rodriguez. "When we were writing, I didn't try to do what everybody else does. We didn't need to throw a ton of riffs into one song or get overly technical. I wanted to make music that was catchy."
With that mindset, the group retreated to a Southern California studio with producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura). Check out a sneak peek into the recording process below.
"Masks" will be in stores September 17th, 2013 through Century Media Records. More...

A new lyric video for the track "Lost and Forgotten" can be found below. The following press release was also issued:
"At some point or another, everybody wears a mask. That facade doesn't just hide imperfections or insecurities either. It allows its wearer to assume a different face. Sometimes, that's a dangerous proposition. Other times, it's the only way to find oneself." More...
Eyes Set To Kill will uncover the band's identity with "Masks," the fifth full-length album and first for Century Media Records. "Masks" is set for release September 17, 2013 in North America.
Singer Alexia Rodrigues comments: "I felt like we were wearing a bunch of masks to impress people. At one point, I had a bit of a revelation. We have gone through so many changes over the years, but it wasn't about anybody else. It was about us - we've really found the band's face at this point. We aren't wearing masks anymore."
