THE 69 EYES Release First Music Video!


Conceived in Finland in 1989, dark rockers THE 69 EYES have come a long way and shaped the genre of ‘Goth ‘n’ Roll’ like no other. With several platinum selling albums like Blessed Be and Paris Kills released around the millennium, the quintet not only reached #1 of the single and album charts in their home country of Finland, but also plunged the world into their sinful cosmos of love, death and eternal melancholy, outliving any other band emerging from the goth hype of the early 2000s. By developing their sound further into sleaze rock on Devils (2004) and Angels (2007) and not shying away from pitch black Elvis allusions in singer Jyrki 69’s majestic dark voice and unique dance moves on stage, the band established their worldwide following by relentlessly touring Europe, America, Asia and Australia.

This year marks their 30th band anniversary but the band aren't slowing down yet as they have now announced their new studio piece West End that will be released on Friday, the 13th of September via Nuclear Blast.

The pre-order for the physical and digital editions of the album will start soon.



But of course there's even more to come - because what would a 30-year-anniversary celebration be without the announcement of a huge European tour? After having returned to the United States this spring for their first tour there in ten years, the Helsinki Vampires will also haunt Europe on these dates:
