THE 69 EYES - Recording New Album, First Single Out In January

So called Helsinki vampires The 69 Eyes are currently still in the studio with producer Johnny Lee Michaels in his Helsinki-based Bat Cave Studios. Their 11th studio album titled Universal Monsters will see the light of the day in April 2016 through Nuclear Blast Records. The first single and video from it will be released on 15th January 2016. It’s called "Jet Fighter Plane" and the video for it was directed by Ville Juurikkala known for his work with Nightwish, Amorphis, Michael Monroe,... In the player below you can watch a short teaser.
The 69 Eyes vocalist Jyrki commented: "The song has a dark early 80’s kind of vibe. I wrote the lyrics those Cold War-era times in my mind. Strangely the world has totally returned into those dark days again after recording the song. It’s been some 15 years since we recorded Blessed Be and Paris Kills albums with producer Johnny Lee Michaels here in Helsinki. You can consider Universal Monsters as a follow-up to those records. Nobody makes this kind of music anymore."
