Today Helsinki’s longest serving gothic rock vampires THE 69 EYES come out from their crypt announcing the new studio album titled »Death Of Darkness«. The record will see the light of the day on April 21st 2023 via Atomic Fire Records (worldwide excl. Finland where it will be released by Vallila Music House), while in US the physical versions will be available on May 5th 2023. We started to make this album single by single, releasing first singles then an EP and now eventually the whole album. The method kept everything fresh and us on our toes while recording and writing new music. Our main aim was to get The 69 Eyes back to the Finland’s airwaves. Our music is still on radio but over 15 years old classics. How about new ones? The first single ‘Drive’ made this happen and we hit the jackpot here in Finland by being a part of ‘Sing meinen Song – Das Tauschkonzert’ mainstream TV music show format! Now The 69 Eyes are back in the spotlight and Finland’s top rock band playing sold-out shows”, comments THE 69 EYES’ frontman Jyrki 69.

»Death Of Darkness« was recorded and produced by Erno Laitinen at Inkfish Studios in Helsinki. Miles Walker took care of the mixing at Westside Sound Studios in Atlanta,GA alongside with Erno Laitinen while mastering duties were handled by Tom Baker. The artwork was created by the UK artist Adrian Baxter (PARADISE LOSTTHE HALO EFFECTMAYHEMSCHAMMASCH, a.o.). »Death Of Darkness« will be available in the following formats:– CD Digipak    – LP in sleeve blue-clear– LP in sleeve blood red marbled– Digital    Pre-order the album in the physical format of your choice, pre-save it on your favorite DSP, here: https://the69eyes.afr.link/deathofdarknessPR
