Having spent the last couple years on the independent grind, Phoenix-based rock group Eyes Set To Kill has decided to return to the indie label fold and has inked a deal with Century Media Records. The band's upcoming album is set to be released in the Spring of 2013.
Frontwoman Alexia Rodriguez explains, "For the past two years we have been touring around the world and evolving into the band we are today without the support of a label. We are finally happy to announce that we've found a home and family at Century Media and can't wait for what is to come."
"Century Media has been a fan of Eyes Set To Kill for years," states North America label President Don Robertson, "so we're honored that when the band finally decided to return to the label system that they chose to work with us."
To celebrate the new partnership, Eyes Set To Kill will be having a signing party this Friday, July 20th at Angels and Kings in Los Angeles, CA. For more information, visit this location.

In the meantime Eyes Set To Kill has checked in with the following tour re-cap following the cancellation of the remaining dates with Otep after singer Otep Shamaya was diagnosed with a throat infection.
"The Otep tour was fantastic. The turn outs were great and the shows were good chance for us to make new fans. We like to thank everyone in the Otep tour for having us out and giving us the chance to connect with their fans," says Eyes Set To Kill drummer Caleb. "We are all very excited to hit the road with Human Abstract in the coming weeks, as they are a great band. This is going to be another great tour and we can't wait to get back out on the road."

As previously reported, KOCH Records recording artist OTEP is set to hit the road, headlining a new tour to promote its latest album, "The Ascension." The Circus of Democracy Tour will be presented by Hot Topic and will also feature Creature Feature, Eyes Set To Kill and KOCH recording artist Anew Revolution.
About naming the tour The Circus of Democracy, frontwoman Otep Shamaya states, “This is one of those amazingly emotional and inspirational seasons that comes rarely (even once) in a lifetime. It can disappear as quickly as it came if we do not reach out (with both hands) and grab it. Our nation is trapped in 2 wars, our economy is slowly sliding into recession, gas prices are obscenely high, the environment is in chaos, the working class is losing ground, our healthcare system is in shambles, but now we, as citizens, have the opportunity to be involved in a life saving effort for our nation. Never before have there been so many people inspired to take ownership of their country. We've seen what happens when citizens do nothing; elections can be stolen, wars can be launched, & oligarchs can swell their pockets with our national treasures. So as part of our mission to help provoke people into action, I've named the tour The Circus of Democracy. We want people informed, inspired, and involved and to remind them they have the power to change the course of history. All around us the energy is swelling. It feels like we are on the verge of a new American Revolution, only this time waged with thought and spirit rather than guns and cannons.”
The band’s new single, “Perfectly Flawed,” will impact at Active/Modern Rock Radio on April 8th. In addition, the new video for the song “Confrontation” debuted on MTV2’s Headbangers’ Ball last weekend.
On May 6th, 2008 ITunes will be releasing two tracks that were previously only available on special versions of "The Ascension." The tracks are “Special Pets” and “Perfectly Flawed.”
To date, OTEP has sold over 400,000 units, and continues its success with "The Ascension."
