The Helsinki Vampires are back!

The Finnish goth’n’rollers had been silent after the release of their last album “Back in Blood” which came out in 2009 via Nuclear Blast Records. The band has been working on their new album which will be released on September 2012. Nuclear Blast issued the following statement about their new album :

NUCLEAR BLAST has issued the following:

Those Helsinki Vampires also known as THE 69 EYES are currently working on their 10th studio album in Stockholm, Sweden. The album is said to be melancholic and melodic in the best 69 EYES way, referring to their “goth’n’roll” landmark albums “Blessed Be” (2000) and “Paris Kills” (2002). “The last album was recorded in Hollywood adding that special L.A. glam flavor to our sound. Now this time as this album is our “Made In Sweden” record, our melodic, Scandinavian melancholy side is rising on the top!” says the vocalist Jyrki69. The Finns have teamed up with the Swedish production team “On The Verge” to bring back the beauty in their sound.

The album will be out in September world-wide through Nuclear Blast Records.

The last 69 EYES album, “Back In Blood”, came out in 2009 on Nuclear Blast in Europe and was produced by American Grammy-awarded metal producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MONSTER MAGNET, CHILDREN OF BODOM). The band toured non-stop two years for it and played close to 200 shows in 27 countries.

Further details about the new album will surely be stated on the band’s website as well on the official facebook page of the vocalist, Jyrki 69. I have been following the updates about the new album every day and I have read that the new album will be like “Blessed Be” ; just like the old times. Hopefully it will be like that because I miss the old 69 Eyes for sure! 🙂 I also think that the famous American tattoist Kat Von D will also be featured in the new album 😉
