“After almost two years, we are very excited to release our new record, An Eye For An Eye. We've had time to learn about the band and ultimately figure out the direction that we'd like to go musically. I think the record shows a lot of growth and progression as we went outside of our norm to try some different things for a few songs. We couldn't be happier with the way the record turned out and can't wait to share it with all of you,” states vocalist Chris Roetter.
An Eye For An Eye upholds Like Moths To Flames’ notoriously aggressive energy while revealing the band’s most exciting and heavy-hitting work to date. The new album showcases maturing song structures leading with sleek guitar melodies rolling into robust riffs that compliment Roetter’s signature raw textured vocals and merciless lyrics. Guest vocalists Shane Told of Silverstein on “Into The Ground” and Ahren Stringer of The Amity Affliction on “Lord of Bones” also add to the evolving dynamic of the album that sets it apart from previous releases.
The much-anticipated follow-up to the band’s 2011 debut When We Don’t Exist was once again recorded at Machine Shop Productions in Belleville, NJ with producer Will Putney (Miss May I, For Today, Suicide Silence).
Roetter comments, “After working with Will Putney at Machine Shop for our first album there was no question to where we would be recording the second. We spent the months of March and April at Machine Shop working on this album and once again the experience was great. Putney has always had a good grasp on where the band wants to go musically and what the band wants to do and he helps us to get there."
With the new release underway the Ohio natives continue to gain momentum having been covered by the likes of Alternative Press, Outburn Magazine, Noisecreep, Revolver, etc. Relentless touring has also distinguished the band as steadfast travel warriors hitting the road cross country with Miss May I, Silverstein, We Came As Romans and peers alike as well as headlining the 2013 Rise Records Tour.
