The Helsinki vampires The 69 Eyes have secretly returned to the studio to record a new biting opus for the hungry masses with producer Johnny Lee Michaels, who was already responsible for the recording of ‘Blessed Be’ and ‘Paris Kills’.
Vocalist Jyrki 69 reveals;
“Dear Helsinki vampires loyalists, how's your summer been? I've been thinking of you a lot lately. Especially in the nights... in the studio. You see, we are currently in the studio recording our new album here in Helsinki. It's coming out really good, feels like a record I've always wanted us to do. A bit hard to explain but you will hear it soon! If you happened to like those albums we’ve made earlier with Johnny, you will love this new one too. The first single will come out later on this year and the album in early 2016. August moon - where are you...?“
