Los Angeles, CA – Darkness looms over the Western U.S. as as legendary goth frontman Jyrki 69 (The 69 Eyes) and veteran goth rock band MGT prepare for their impending tour. The dark rock labelmates will kick off the tour next Friday in Mesa, AZ and will wrap on March 21st in West Hollywood, CA. Dates are listed below.
The 69 Eyes vocalist, Jyrki 69, is touring in support of his debut solo album, Helsinki Vampire, which is available now from Cleopatra Records. The record was produced, mixed, and mastered by longtime The 69 Eyes producer Johnny Lee Michaels and builds on the distinctive “goth n’ roll” sound that The 69 Eyes honed over the course of a dozen albums while adding a more richly textured, darkly romantic atmosphere. Watch his video for the record’s fan-favorite single, “Bloodlust,” (feat. cameos by Lemmy Kilmister (Motörhead), Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses) and Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns)) at RollingStone.com: http://rol.st/2rMAkxu. Stream the album now at Spotify: http://spoti.fi/2s052nb.
MGT is touring behind their recently released sophomore album, Gemini Nyte, which features 13 songs written and recorded by guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite (THE MISSION/PETER MURPHY) and vocalist Ashton Nyte (THE AWAKENING), plus drummer Paul Ferguson (KILLING JOKE) and a guest appearance by Burton C Bell (FEAR FACTORY) with additional remixes by Lol Tolhurst & Pearl Thompson (THE CURE).
