The last time that goth rock legends THE 69 EYES toured the United States, was in 2009. As the band has been busy conducting business as usual, releasing albums and touring elsewhere, the US has been waiting a very long for the return of the Helsinki Vampires.
After recently teaming up with DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara’s and his wife Anahstasia’s The Oracle Management, THE 69 EYES are ready to start a new chapter in their 30-year rock’n’roll saga.
”Before releasing the new album, we’re closing a chapter in our history, by returning to the homeland of ELVIS and THE RAMONES," stated THE 69 EYES singer Jyrki 69. "We cannot wait to play in Memphis and New York and another 20 cities! It’s been way too long. Feels like we’re really back from the grave!”
Make sure to catch the opportunity to finally see the Helsinki Vampires live in the United States again, on the following dates below. Tickets are available now via www.69eyes.com/tour and VIP packages can be purchased from bit.ly/the69eyesvip.
