The 69 Eyes are set to haunt Munich’s Backstage on New Year’s Eve on “Still Gotta Rock Tour 2023”

, , ,

The days are getting darker and every vampire’s favourite season draws near! That’s why THE 69 EYES are back to celebrate with their fellow goth swarm with another bout of tour dates. The run is leading the band to a few more clubs of their homecountry before they return to the UK where fans have been longing for Helsinki’s finest rock outfit to perform. The UK shows will be followed by a quick visit in Mexico as well as more performances in Finland. But the icing on the (blood-soaked) cake will be their special appearance at Backstage Munich on New Year’s Eve to celebrate the end of the year, which saw the release of THE 69 EYES‘ latest album, »Death Of Darkness,« on April 21 through Atomic Fire Records, with their loyal German fans at the place which was packed during the band’s European tour in early 2023. Also: Goth ‘n’ rollers in other countries, don’t you worry as a bunch of 2024 dates (festival shows as well as a 3-show trip to their Swedish neighbours) have already been announced with further gigs to be added in the future. All dates can be found below!

Widely known as the Helsinki Vampires, the quintet gained several platinum albums with »Blessed Be« and »Paris Kills« and not only reached #1 of the single and album charts in their home country of Finland, but also plunged the world into a sinful cosmos of love, death and melancholy, while outliving any other band emerging from the goth hype of the early 2000s. By developing their sound further into sleaze rock on »Devils« (2004) and »Angels« (2007) and not shying away from pitch black Elvis allusions in singer Jyrki 69‘s dark voice and unique onstage dance moves, the band have established a worldwide following. Over the course of over three decades, the band have toured relentlessly throughout Europe, America, Asia and Australia and released 12 full-length studio albums.

Sprawling across ten lavishly dark, effortlessly cool songs, their 13th record, »Death Of Darkness« is one of their most flawless, most consistent – bearing a title that’s of course both stylish and symbolic. Just like their music. 2023 is a far cry from the early days of the new millennium when gothic rock bands emerged from every graveyard and Finnish vampires stormed the charts around the world. However, the spirit of a world-class record like »Death Of Darkness,« the sheer passion and the enticing mystery, the suspense, and the smirk, are still very much alive.

THE 69 EYES are:
Jyrki 69 | lead vocals
Bazie | lead guitars, backing vocals
Timo-Timo | guitars
Archzie | bass, backing vocals
Jussi 69 | drums
