Recently, THE 69 EYES released the single "Gotta Rock", a cover from the famous Finnish hard rock band BOYCOTT that released the rock anthem in the late 1980s.

THE 69 EYES has been haunting stages all over the world for 34 years and seem to be a truly immortal part of the dark rock/metal scene. Widely known as the Helsinki Vampires, the quintet gained several platinum albums with "Blessed Be" and "Paris Kills" and not only reached #1 of the single and album charts in their home country of Finland, but also plunged the world into a sinful cosmos of love, death and melancholy, while outliving any other band emerging from the goth hype of the early 2000s.

By developing their sound further into sleaze rock on "Devils" (2004) and "Angels" (2007) and not shying away from pitch black Elvis Presley allusions in Jyrki 69's dark voice and unique onstage dance moves, the band has established a worldwide following. Over the course of over three decades, the band has toured relentlessly throughout Europe, America, Asia and Australia and released 12 full-length studio albums.

THE 69 EYES are:

Jyrki 69 - Vocals
Bazie - Guitar
Timo Timo - Guitar
Archzie - Bass
Jussi 69 - Drums
