Helsinki vampire rock outfit, The 69 Eyes, is currently putting the finishing touches on its new, 10th studio album, due out early October on Nuclear Blast Records.
Commented lead vampire, 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.”
X was recorded in Stockholm, Sweden, produced by “On The Verge” production team, with Stefan Boman (The Hellacopters, Bullet) handling mixing duties.
The first single release from X, “Red,” will surface this August.
“The sound is the most melodic, yet melancholic, we’ve ever had,” added, Jyrki69. “Listening to the pre-mixes have been giving goose bumps to everyone here. This is the best 69 Eyes album ever done!”
At the same time the band will also launch its own vampire style red wine, simply called, “Red,” which will mainly be distributed in Sweden and Finland.
While waiting for the album, the Helsinki vampire enthusiastic can go to listen to singer Jyrki’s DJ skills as he hosts his Goth’n’Roll club nights in Barcelona’s UNDEAD club on July 7th: http://www.facebook.com/events/444590075554132/ and FANGTASIA II event in New Orleans, USA on July 21st: http://www.seraphemera.org/seraphemera_books/Fangtasia2.html.
