THE 69 EYES release new EP “Drive” incl. 3 new songs + music video for ‘California’


The summer may almost be over, but Finland’s leading gothic rockers THE 69 EYES once again let you enjoy a dark summer night in “California” with this last single off their EP “Drive” that is digitally available now!

“I usually have lots of riffs, but these ones never left my mind and sounded exciting every time I played them. Wanted to have that 1987 hard rock vibe, but with groovy bass and big chorus,” guitarist Bazie remembers and singer Jyrki 69 adds: “These kinds of songs come from your mind after missing the sun! That’s like Lynyrd Skynyrd missing the Cali, haha!”

For those who just can’t get enough of the new tracks, THE 69 EYES have prepared a strictly limited vinyl EP including the three brand-new tracks of this year and even one exclusive bonus live song:

1. Drive
2. Call Me Snake
3. California
4. Two Horns Up (Live) – only available on vinyl, not digitally

The red vinyl will be available on Friday. But you can also get a never before seen vinyl cut in the shape of a steering wheel, exclusively handcrafted by Night Of The Vinyl Dead. Pre-order it here:
