69 In The Darkness


Finnish vampire rockers release video ahead of tour dates

Halloween is approaching and therefore it is once again time for the Helsinki Vampires THE 69 EYES to invade Europe with their unique mix of gothic metal and gloom rock’n’roll! But first they invite you all over to New York with their brand new video for ‘Lady Darkness‘, which was once again directed and filmed in a modern black&white flair by fronter Jyrki 69 himself and edited by Jimi Sero.

“I wrote the lyrics for this song about my bar life in New York City – ‘Lady Darkness’ being The Death dressed as a bar tender lady. So naturally I went to film the video there too, featuring a lot of rock’n’roll cultural sights in The Lower East Side and elsewhere in Manhattan. The main guy in the video, a modern day “Midnight Cowboy” is my friend Sam Hariss, bass player from the cool New York band THE SWEET THINGS. Other people are just my friends, I filmed it during my long weekend there in August. Once again it looks like my comics, a black/white mini movie like the earlier ones I did: ‘Jerusalem’ and ‘Miss Pastis'”, says THE 69 EYES singer Jyrki 69.

This second leg of their European Universal Monsters tour brings THE 69 EYES on the same stage as legendary dark rockers THE MISSION on three exclusive UK shows, before they head over to Germany, Slovakia and Poland and bring winter’s darkness to their home country Finland.
