Darkness 69 On July - 3 - 2012

As per Nuclear Blast, The 69 Eyes are currently putting the finishing touches

to their new, 10th studio album. Jyrki69:

“We’ve never really celebrated anything, not that we’ve been playing 20 years

or so (vampires don’t count decades). Thus this time we thought to celebrate

a bit: the new album is entitled as tenth in Roman numbers, it’ll be called “X””.

The mixing is done by Stefan Boman (THE HELLACOPTERS, BULLET).

“The sound is the most melodic, yet melancholic, we’ve ever had.

Listening to the pre-mixes have been giving goose bumps to everyone here.

This is the best 69 EYES album ever done!” Jyrki states.

The first single “Red” is due in August as the album comes out in September
on Nuclear Blast Records in Europe and USA, and RCA/Sony in Finland.

The 69 Eyes will shoot the video for the song in July in Gothenburg with

Patrick Ullaeus/ Revolver Film Company (Lacuna Coil, In Flames and such),

which is also a style change after several last videos had Bam Margera

behind the camera.

The band will also launch their own vampire style red wine this summer,

simply called “Red”, which will mainly be distributed in Sweden and Finland.

While waiting for the album, fellow vampires can go listen to Jyrki’s DJ skills

as he hosts his Goth’n’Roll club nights:

July 7th, UNDEAD, Barcelona, Spain

July 21st, FANGTASIA II, New Orleans, USA
(hint: there’s a special tour through New Orleans’ French Quarter with Jyrki!)

Both Jyrki and Jussi have been keeping busy as DJs, so Jyrki was frequenting

bar Loose in Helsinki (among other hot vampire spots), and Jussi69

even hosted a Lunatic Sabbath Party in Tokyo on June 23rd. Things

are definitely getting hotter as we approach the first listening of the

new single, release parties for “X” and other 69 events!
