AJ Bartholomew Exits Eyes Set To Kill

Eyes Set To Kill guitarist/vocalist AJ Bartholomew has announced his departure from the band. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

Bartholomew issued the following statement:

“Hello all,

I will no longer be an official member of Eyes Set to Kill. I wish I could stay, but as the late, great Odin of Asgard once said, “I’m on a different path now.”

These past 7+ years have been amazing, and I am so happy and thankful to have gotten to tour the world with such greats friends.

I would like to thank Caleb and Alexia for bringing me on board, and a huge thanks to the fans for welcoming me into the ESTK family right from my very first show back in 2015.

Much love,

-AJ”

Eyes Set To Kill Premiere New Song “Fake”

Eyes Set To Kill have premiered a new song titled “Fake.” This track will appear on the upcoming vinyl edition of the band’s latest EP “Damna.”

Alexia Rodriguez commented:

“‘Fake’ is about the versions of ourselves that we broadcast to the network of social media in order to steer away or cover up the reality of who we really are or how we really feel. I confess that I have been consumed by the idea of other people’s perceptions of who I am from time to time. In that, I wanted to shine a light on these truths about our own realities and how we use social media to paint a pretty picture to mask the internal faults, pasts, mistakes; who we really are behind the screen. The truth is what always remains at our core and no matter how pretty we paint that picture for others, we ourselves will one way or another have to face the truth of who we really are with acceptance.”

Eyes Set To Kill have premiered a new song titled “Sink Your Teeth.” This track features Heidi Shepherd (Butcher Babies) and it will appear on the band’s new EP “Damna,” which is set to be released on December 3. Eyes Set To Kill’s Alexia Rodriguez said the following:

“Before the chaos and destruction of 2020, I had been cultivating a concept for our next music based on my own experiences with variations of loss. As the months unfolded, the idea took on a new resonance as the world collectively shared in that same experience. We were all faced to look inward, but as we started to climb our way out, I felt awakened by the power of perception and the way we choose to perceive happenings in this life. We have the power to choose to see that everything we lose occurs to help us further discover our true selves. We’re excited to unveil the chapter of Eyes Set To Kill – the era of DAMNA – and hope that together we can find some light in the darkness.”
