Finland’s dark rockers THE 69 EYES recently announced that they will release their 12th studio album on September 13th. Right in time for their 30th band anniversary, ‘West End’ will see the light of day, so prepare for 11 up-tempo rock anthems full of heaviness, black memento mori moments and dark humour featuring several top-notch guest vocalists including Cradle Of Filth‘s Dani Filth, Wednesday 13 and Beastö Blancö‘s Calico Cooper.

Today, the band have revealed the first trailer for their upcoming album, in which they discuss the “funeral balloons” sculpture on the cover of the album. The artwork was created by the famous Finnish sculptor Jiri Geller, a friend of the band since the very early days.

“It was like black magick to have Jiri back in our Helsinki Vampire circles again! I literally haven’t seen him for twenty years but he was the same freak as back then – and as we all are,” singer Jyrki 69 praises the long-lost lost boy.
