Darkness 69 On January - 15 - 2016

The new video “Jet Fighter Plane” from the upcoming album “Universal Monsters” has finally landed!

JET FIGHTER PLANE

It takes a thief to catch a thief
That’s the cold war policy
Don’t need no prophecy
Ever told you it ain’t news
The world is crumbling from abuse
I don’t need no another excuse

I bring you peace
Wipe down disease
Man-made machines
Jet fighter plane

Live by a sword die by a sword
That’s the first stone policy
Don’t need no apology
All the leaders in the news
False prophets blowing the fuse
Justifying the final excuse

I bring you peace
Wipe down disease
Man-made machines
Jet fighter plane

I bring you peace
Wipe down disease
Man-made machines
Jet fighter
Jet fighter plane

Did you know governments raising soldiers to kill

Ever told you it ain’t news
The world is crumbling from abuse
I don’t need no another excuse

I bring you peace
Wipe down disease
Man-made machines
Jet fighter plane

I bring you peace
Wipe down disease
Man-made machines
Jet fighter
Jet fighter plane

Governments raising children to kill…

As per Jyrki on the Eyes’ FB profile, the new song is definitely politically charged, which is sort of a new ground for the Helsinki Vampires. Very relevant lyrics and a poignant video done by Ville Juurikkala announce the new album out in April 2016. Here’s what Jyrki said: “So here’s our new single ‘Jet Fighter Plane’.

As I first heard the instrumental demo of the song, it immediately sounded for me like a song from the early 80’s new wave/post punk days. You know, like when the music was heavily inspired by David Bowie’s dark visions, the Cold War, the threat of nuclear war and “1984”-kind of the future. So I wrote such lyrics from the past – and all of a sudden, the history started to repeat itself and the Cold War winds started to blow again. It was very strange – all of a sudden THE 69 EYES have a song which is very “today” and even slightly political, longing back the days of peace. We also wanted the video to be artistic and visually capturing the vibe and theme of the song. There is hope but also darkness, violence and innocence. But it’s only goth ‘n’ roll and I like it!

The video is done by our good ol’ trusty photographer Ville Juurikkala.

Live for today,
