Finnish goth metallers THE 69 EYES will release their new album, "Angels", in Finland on March 5 via Virgin/EMI. The album was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa and Johnny Lee Michaels — the same team that was responsible for 2004's "Devils". The video for the first single, "Perfect Skin", was directed by Ralf Strathmann and it was filmed in Hollywood in mid-October 2006. You can watch the clip here. The commercial release of the single will be in January/February, depending on your country. The additional tracks on the single will be live versions of "Devils", "Christina Death" and "I Just Want to Have Something to Do" (originally by THE RAMONES) recorded at Whisky a Go-Go in Hollywood in March 2006.
"Angels" track listing:
02. Never Say Die
05. Perfect Skin
06. Wings & Hearts
07. Star Of Fate
08. Los Angeles
09. In My Name
10. Shadow Of Your Love
The limited edition of "Angels" will include a bonus DVD containing the "Perfect Skin" video, a five-song live set from Hollywood’s Whisky a Go-Go in 2006 and "On The Route 69", a short film based on Ville Juurikkala's photos.
As previously reported, Cleopatra Records is releasing THE 69 EYES' entire back catalogue in the U.S. "Framed In Blood - The Very Blessed Of…" compilation CD, the "Helsinki Vampires" live album and videos DVD, and the albums "Paris Kills" and "Blessed Be" are already out. More will follow during the year.
THE 69 EYES will support CRADLE OF FILTH on a North American tour between January 23 and March 3. A central European tour with WEDNESDAY 13 will follow immediately after the album's release. A list of upcoming out dates can be found at this location.
