In other news, EYES OF FIRE will be filming a video for the first single off their sophomore album, "Prisons". The "It All Dies Today" clip will be filmed in early October with director Gary Smithson, who has previously worked with HIGH ON FIRE, SIX FEET UNDER and GOATWHORE, among others. The video will reportedly be "not just another performance video but something new and refreshing."

EYES OF FIRE' new album, "Prisons", is due late January 2006 via Century Media Records. The follow-up to last year's "Ashes to Embers" 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. Check out unmastered versions of the tracks "Blood (This Consumes You)" (mp3) and "It All Dies Today" (mp3).
