THE 69 EYES' 12th full-length record, "West End" features guest vocalists such as CRADLE OF FILTH's Dani Filth, Wednesday 13 and BEASTÖ BLANCÖ's Calico Cooper, 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.
Regarding the "West End" album title, singer Jyrki 69 says: "The title 'West End' evokes a dark image — when something dies, something new comes up and we all have to change in order to stay alive. 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."
