THE 69 EYES
Goth ‘n’ roll pioneers THE 69 EYES have been haunting stages all over the world for 33 years and seem to be a truly immortal part of the dark rock/metal scene. Widely known as the Helsinki Vampires, the quintet gained several platinum albums with “Blessed Be” and “Paris Kills” and not only reached #1 on the single and album charts in their home country of Finland, but also plunged the world into a sinful cosmos of love, death and melancholy, while outliving any other band emerging from the goth hype of the early 2000s.
By developing their sound further into sleaze rock on “Devils” (2004) and “Angels” (2007) and not shying away from pitch black “Elvis” allusions in singer Jyrki 69’s dark voice and unique onstage dance moves, the band have established a worldwide following. Over the course of over three decades, the band has toured relentlessly throughout Europe, America, Asia and Australia and released 12 full-length studio albums. Now they return to take you on a dark road trip with this new EP “Drive” featuring 3 brand new tracks from 2022 and one live banger.
Newly signed to Earache Records – Hollywood’s hottest rock band, The Bites.
Primed to drop jaws with their monster hybrid of breathtaking garage rock rhythms, gargantuan choruses that stay in your head for days, an unashamedly retro style and, above all, their dedication to creating party-starting vibes at their gigs. For the Bites, every show is an excuse to party!
Coming later in 2023, their debut album ‘Squeeze’ resurrects the style, hop and swagger of early rock’n’roll, displaying the no-nonsense attitude of The Hives, and is divinely inspired by the sheer recklessness of Mötley Crüe.
No 80s throwbacks, The Bites were founded in 2019 by ever-effervescent frontman Jordan Tyler, as he watched his profile on TikTok blow up with over 2 million likes of his classic rock covers, completed a line up with the addition of drummer and producer extraordinaire Mark Hylander. Along with lightning fast guitarists Dustin Coon and Jono Richer and bass champion Zack Currier, The Bites continue to electrify audiences across the US and soon the world.
“We built this band on authenticity. Everything we do, from the songs, to the stage, to the way we dress, is just genuinely who we are and how we operate. We don’t have to try or go out of our way to be rock and roll, we just do what we do and the end result is vicious,” Jordan testifies.
‘Squeeze’ will be ready for you to sink your teeth into in July of 2023.
Modern rock ’n’ roll outfit from Hollywood, CA. “A farewell to this realm and an invitation to the next.”
