After devastating audiences on national tours with Papa Roach, Kittie,
Walls of Jericho, In This Moment and the Warped Tour, Arizona's Eyes Set
To Kill have put the finishing touches on their debut full-length,
"Reach", which lands in stores on February 19th, 2008 through
BreakSilence Records.

"All of the hard work we've put into the band over the last couple years
is finally starting to pay off," says frontman Brandon Anderson. "Now
it's given us a chance to work that much harder to take things to the
next level."

Formed in 2004 by sisters Alexia and Anissa Rodriguez, Eyes Set to Kill
have moved forward with huge strides quickly and not so quietly over the
past three and a half years. Joining Alexia (vocals, lead guitar, piano)
and Anissa (bass) and rounding out the five-piece are screamer and synth
keyboardist Brandon Anderson, second guitarist Greg Kerwin and drummer
Caleb Clifton. Eyes Set to Kill have sold more than 11,000 copies of
their EP When Silence is Broken The Night Is Torn and DVD, A Day With
Eyes Set to Kill combined, with the former reaching #2 and the latter #1
on the popular online retailer smartpunk.com and limited retail

Rife with conflict and juxtaposing that conflict with promise, Reach is
not a teenage angst-ridden twenty first century response to the Seattle
scene of the nineties. And it's more than a teenage coming of age
story. Reach is the world's welcome to a young band with a fresh voice.
"The album is symbolic of what we want to achieve with our music.
Most of the songs are about overcoming the obstacles that everyone faces
in life. We hope that our music reaches out to the listener and can
help them overcome some of the same issues that we've had to deal with
in our lives," Alexia notes, pointing to the more promising themes in
the music. "We want to let people know that they can rise above the
problems they face in their life; if our music can be that catalyst in
someone's life then that's amazing."

As can be expected, Reach exhibits a more mature Eyes Set to Kill – more
mature in its songwriting and its lyrics. As the primary lyricist,
Alexia tackles themes such as frustration and anxiety, relationships,
isolation and correcting one's past. Alexia shows a woman well beyond
her young years throughout Reach; she shows a songwriter that writes
differently than the rest, pushing boundaries lyrically when possible.
"Only Holding On," for example, is a battle between Alexia's outer self
and her conscience shown through the song's verses, while the chorus is
a third voice, her band, trying to ground her once again in the real
reasons she performs music. "Young Blood Spills Tonight," deals with
the pain of divorce told from the perspectives of Alexia and her mother.

Lucky's is the Hottness home venue if you can claim such a thing. Where Adam (their vocalist) loves to get drunk and pretend he knows things.
