The 69 Eyes announce new studio album, new video released

Finnish goth ‘n rollers The 69 Eyes have revealed details on their upcoming 12th full-length record. “West End”, featuring top notch guest vocalists such as Dani Filth (Cradle Of Filth), Wednesday 13 and Calico Cooper (Beastö Blancö), will be released on September 13th via Nuclear Blast. The album consists of 11 up-tempo rock anthems full of heaviness, black memento mori moments and dark humour and sees the band dancing in the ruins of our world. The pre-order for the physical and digital editions of the album will start soon.

Singer Jyrki 69 explains the album title: “I feel like this planet is on some turning point. The end of the western world is near and the question is: What is happening when the west ends..? The title has multiple meanings for us… but be assured it has definitely nothing to do with The Pet Shop Boys or London…”

As first taster for the new album, The 69 Eyes reveals the music video directed by Los Angeles-based Vicente Cordero (3 Teeth, “Room 37- The Mysterious Death of Johnny Thunders” movie) for their new single “27 & Done”. The clip features excerpts from the horror film “The 27 Club” by Cleopatra Entertainment which will be out on June 13, 2019.
