PRESS RELEASE: Finnish gothic/glam goo-goo mucks THE 69 EYES unveil an official video for the title track of their upcoming studio album, »Death Of Darkness« which is due out 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. With an eclectic penchant for morbidity, glamour, sex and the supernatural, they embody both the foggy essence of Nordic gothic rock and the lusty decadence of Sunset Strip. Celebrating this unholy union with a love song to the darkness in all of us, the band sound classy, sexy, raunchy, and dramatic more than ever.
“‘Death Of Darkness’ is a song about love. Love leads us to the light. Very simple. It sounds like written some 25 years ago. It’s melancholic goth rock like we knew it in 2001!” states front-man Jyrki 69.

With the irresistible first single, ‘Drive,’ already being released in April 2022, THE 69 EYES found a whole new approach to creating albums. “We wanted to spread our gospel further and further,” Helsinki vampire Jyrki 69 says. “The main motivation of this band is to keep going, to please our loyal fanbase and to expand our audience. That’s why we released our first new single while we were still in the middle of working on the album. It’s a new approach for us, releasing a string of singles before we even announced the album. It kept everything really fresh and exciting and kept us on our toes which was a great motivator behind writing a killer album.”
»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 LOST, THE HALO EFFECT, MAYHEM, SCHAMMASCH, a.o.).
