Elektra Records has signed The Moth & The Flame to their roster. The Provo, Utah alternative rock band has released a live performance video of their fan-favorite track ‘Sorry’ to herald the news. Check out the video below via YouTube.
“We’re excited to join the roster of Elektra Records,” frontman Brandon Robbins said. “The label’s history is filled with culture-defining artists that have inspired us individually and collectively. There’s a great creative spirit there that we all immediately recognized and wanted to be a part of.”
“The Moth & The Flame command the live stage and home speakers with equal fervor,” Elektra President Jeff Castelaz added. “Their songs encapsulate the fever and frailty of human emotion in a way that appeals to me as a music advocate. For that reason, I’m extremely proud to make them the newest member of the Elektra family.”

Last Tuesday while performing at the Aftershock Bar & Grill in Merriam, Kansas – Anissa Rodriguez of Eyes Set To Kill was taken to the hospital for problems with her eye. The bassist was later diagnosed with a blood clot behind her left eye and was hospitalized until yesterday when the doctor let her go home back to Arizona. Rodriguez will be on bed rest for the next couple of weeks. The band has officially cancelled the remainder of their tour dates in July as a result and hope to get back on the road and make up shows soon!
Singer/Guitarist and sister Alexia Rodriguez has released this statement:
Eyes Set To Kill must unfortunately cancel the rest of our tour dates in July due to the recent discovery of a blood clot behind my sister Anissa’s eye. I have witnessed my sister go through some painful procedures and I am thankful that I have had the chance to be by her side through it all. The doctor said she is going to need a couple weeks to recover and I will continue to stay by her side to help her back to health. We want to thank all the fans for their love and understanding. We also hope to make up for our cancelled appearances somehow, someway. This past week has been a scary journey but I am just happy I could be here for her through the most excruciating experience and we are both so thankful to have been reading all of the love from our devoted fans and family. I truly believe their prayers helped her spirits and sped up her healing process.
Eyes Set To Kill have announced their next run of shows in support of their current album ‘Masks’, which was released last fall. The Phoenix rock band has been on the road since the LP dropped.

Last week while travelling on the I-93 in New Hampshire en route to Quebec City for their show with Avenged Sevenfold and Hellyeah the members and crew from Adrenaline Mob were involved in a near fatal car crash. The accident destroyed the band’s gear and their van. Fortunately, everyone involved walked away from the incident, suffering only temporary injuries.
The band was forced to cancel the tour and return home to recover and rest. Remaining shows were with Avenged Sevenfold and Hellyeah as well as headlining shows up until June 8th.
The band told fans via their Facebook page (@adrenalinemob):
We are sad to announce that the band has been in a serious accident yesterday traveling to Canada on the current A7X/Hellyeah Tour. The band & crew are pretty beat up but by the grace of God there’s no serious injuries & everyone is ok. Unfortunately the trailer flipped & equipment has been destroyed but they are figuring out the next move in hopes to continue on. Thank you all so much for your kind thoughts & prayers!!!
