Founded in the Finnish capital 25 years ago, THE 69 EYES have spawned a total of ten full-length records and an additional selection of live, best-of and remastered albums. Throughout the band’s legacy THE 69 EYES have managed to thrive and reinvent their distinct blend of goth ‘n’ roll - 2016 sees the band continue on with this legacy in the form of new album, 'Universal Monsters'. Today the band have released the fourth making of trailer for the new album, which can be viewed below:



Vocalist Jyrki commented: “THE 69 EYES are a guitar rock band. The main sound relies on two guitars, bass and drums - a classic set up. The overall sound is also shaped by all members' different musical backgrounds. Rhythm guitarist Timo-Timo's musical inspiration used to be punk rock, classic UK '77 punk as well as 80's hardcore punk. Not only just rhythm guitar, he's often behind the melodic guitar licks the make THE 69 EYES songs so memorable. No beers in these sessions but you’ll get to hear a glimpse of the next single pick from the album called 'Dolce Vita'! Still some two months to for that and the album though. Naturally it's pure co-incidence that his features are strangely similar to Bela Lugosi”
