Darkness 69 On August - 14 - 2012

Now we’ve got something to look at while singing “When something is broken…”

(very catchy, wouldn’t you agree?)

The 69 Eyes released the “Red” lyric video, which you can watch below:

But that’s not all! Seraphemera Books just released a book trailer for

the release of no less than three graphic novel series on The 69 Eyes!

The series is about the secret story behind six of the band’s songs

and the consequent formation of the band:

A tale of love, of unrequited love, of self-sacrifice, of blood and blood-lust, of pursuit
and being the pursued (not to mention the hunted), of travels through the early goth
scene in 1980s Los Angeles, of Paris, of New Orleans, of what happens when the sun
does rise on the endless night, and ultimately what leads Jyrki, Jussi, Archzie, Bazie
& Timo-Timo back to Helsinki where The 69 Eyes, affectionately known to their fans as
the Helsinki Vampires, are born…

The story follows the vampire Jyrki and his pursuit of the lover (Gothic Girl) he has been seeing in his dreams.  So, too, is his mysterious lover searching and beckoning he, to her (Christina Death).

After years of his searching, Jyrki finds her in Los Angeles, and in his longing and desire
agrees to grant her wish of becoming a vampire (Crashing High).  However the lovers,
then reposed in the romanticism of Paris, begin to take different paths.  Jyrki, hoping
his humanity could be restored by Christina, watches as her love grows only for the
darkness and the blood of her victims.  And when the lovers discover they are being
hunted by a zealous religious order who are determined to eradicate those they
deem apocryphal to their divine grace (Wings & Hearts), everything changes,
and much seems lost.

Years pass and Jyrki receives word that Christina has settled in New Orleans but
she has fallen into a lifestyle that has nearly destroyed her.  Jyrki, who has spent
the years tracking those who dared to hunt him, goes to the French Quarter in hopes
of saving Christina (Kiss Me Undead) and rekindling their romance…even knowing
the hunters will follow. Together again, their passion soars, but in doing so their
whereabouts are revealed, leading to a climactic night in the famous
St. Louis #1 cemetery (Dead N’ Gone).

The series includes storytelling from Kurt Amacker & Marc Moorash (More to Follow,
Co-Editor Garbanzo Literary Journal).  Artists include:  Damon Bowie, Ben Hansen,
Lora Gray, Ava Dawn Heydt, Enric Simon & Blake Wilkie.

Book 1 will be available in October 2012, while Book 2 & Book 3 will follow in November & December. You can check out the trailer below, as well as the cover of the first book!
