The 69 Eyes Premiere “27 & Done” Video

The 69 Eyes have shared an official video for “27 & Done” off their new album “West End.” Notably, the clip features excerpts from the new horror film “The 27 Club,” which will be released on June 13. “West End” will be released on September 13 and it will feature a number of guests including: Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, Wednesday 13, and Beastö Blancö’s Calico Cooper.

Jyrki 69 said the following about the song:

“The track deals with the idea of Hollywood and everyone coming there to make their dreams come true, but it’s very seldom that they succeed and this is something you can see there everywhere. It’s a place that makes you desperate and I wanted to get these dark vibes into the song. But on the other hand the track is also a celebration of life — we should be excited to be here and everybody’s a legend and they should realize that we should enjoy what we do instead of worry what other people think.”

He also added the following about the album:

“The title ‘West End’ evokes a dark image — when something dies, something new comes up and we all have to change in order to stay alive. I feel like this planet is on some turning point. The end of the western world is near and the question is: What is happening when the west ends? The title has multiple meanings for us… but be assured it has definitely nothing to do with The Pet Shop Boys or London.”

The 69 Eyes Premiere “Christmas In New York City” Video

The 69 Eyes have premiered a new video for their new holiday track “Christmas In New York City.” Check it out below:

Jyrki 69 commented:

“This is about the last thing we haven’t done yet — so it’s our time to release a Christmas song! This is also our tribute to the Ramones and New York which both have been our main influences. I wish nobody has to feel alone this Christmas. This song is all about that. The best feedback would be if Jesse Malin wrote and recorded a song called ‘Christmas In Helsinki’!”
