Orange County-based quintet EYES OF FIRE have posted the following update on their official web site:
"EYES OF FIRE has seen the first edit for the video for 'It All Dies Today' and the band is really impressed with the outcome. The edit the band was able to see is the version that will be added as a bonus feature on the 'Prisons' release. The version that will be released to MTV and Fuse will have more storyline footage than what will be on the 'Prisons' CD. Also, EYES OF FIRE are proud to release today the official album cover that will grace 'Prisons'. The layout was done by the great Agni Kaster (KATATONIA, BLOODBATH) with the cover photo provided by Henk Van Rensbergen. Click here to see the cover in all its glory.
"EYES OF FIRE are also working on some shows for January and February as well as working on a short West Coast tour."
The follow-up to last year's "Ashes to Embers", "Prisons" was produced by the band and mixed by Matt Bayles (MASTODON, ISIS, NORMA JEAN). The drums and bass were tracked at the legendary Grandmaster Recorders (TOOL, NINE INCH NAILS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) in Hollywood. Additional tracking was done in the group's studio in Santa Ana and the record was mixed at For The Record (18 VISIONS, THROWDOWN, DEATH BY STEREO) in Orange. The first 5,000 copies will include a slipcase and a special bonus CD featuring one song, entitled "Home", clocking in at just under 25 minutes. The "It All Dies Today" video was shot with acclaimed director Gary Smithson (EXODUS, HIGH ON FIRE). An early 2006 release via Century Media Records is expected.
