Finnish gothic metallers THE 69 EYES have entered the studio with producer Johnny Lee Michaels to begin recording their new album for an early 2016 release.
Says THE 69 EYES vocalist Jyrki 69: "Dear Helsinki vampires loyalists, how's your summer been? I've been thinking of you a lot lately. Especially in the nights... in the studio. You see, we are currently in the studio recording our new album here in Helsinki. It's coming out really good; [it] feels like a record I've always wanted us to do. A bit hard to explain, but you will hear it soon! If you happened to like those albums we've made earlier with Johnny, you will love this new one, too. The first single will come out later on this year and the album in early 2016. August moon — where are you...?"
THE 69 EYES released a compilation album, "The Best Of Helsinki Vampires", on November 1, 2013 . The collection included a brand new song, "Lost Without Love", written by Jyrki69 and dealing with situations he and the band's drummer, Jussi69, have both gone through.
THE 69 EYES released a digital EP, "Love Runs Away", via iTunes on February 1, 2013. The effort included two previously unreleased bonus songs, "Rosary Blue" and "Dracula's Castle".
"Love Runs Away" was the third single and opening track of THE 69 EYES' latest album, "X", which came out in September 2012.
