Finnish goth-metallers THE 69 EYES have revealed the track listing of their new album, entitled "Devils", tentatively due this fall through EMI/Virgin Records.
The follow-up to 2002's "Paris Kills" was produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (H.I.M., MOONSPELL, SENTENCED) and Johnny Lee Michaels and will be preceded by a single containing the album's title cut.
"We worked for about one and a half years on this record [between songwriting and recording]," singer Jyrki 69 told Finland's Sonera Plaza Kaista. "I sometimes felt like the sessions were never going to be completed. But now, when I listen to the final result, I've gotta say that I'm totally satisfied and so happy! Whenever I think of our previous releases, there are always some little things I don't like about them, but 'Devils' is perfect record, in my opinion."
With regards to the album title, Jyrki said, "'Devils' is great title for a rock 'n' roll record, but no one has ever used it. And with 'devils,' we don't necessarily mean that goat-headed figure' [that most people think of when they hear the word] — our 'devils' refers to something else... It can mean, for example, the guys in this band."

02. Feel Berlin
03. Nothing on You
04. Sister of Charity
05. Lost Boys
07. August Moon
08. Beneath the Blue
