THE 69 EYES Drummer Hospitalized

Finnish goth-metallers THE 69 EYES were forced to cancel shows in Finland and Sweden after drummer Jussi 69 was rushed to the hospital in Porvoo and later taken by ambulance to Helsinki," according to a posting on the group's web site. "[Jussi's] appendix perforated and was later removed. Mr. 69 is now recovering but will on the sick leave for a couple of weeks. THE 69 EYES has postponed this weekend's and Stockholm's shows but will continue the tour from Savonlinna on Friday, December 3."

As previously reported, THE 69 EYES' new album, "Devils" (Virgin/EMI), entered the Finnish album chart at No. 1. upon its release late last month.

The follow-up to 2002's "Paris Kills", "Devils" was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (H.I.M., MOONSPELL, SENTENCED) and Johnny Lee Michaels and was preceded by a single containing the album's title cut.

THE 69 EYES recently shot a video for the album's title track in Sweden with the Baranga Brothers, who have previously worked with THE RASMUS, among others.
