The 69 Eyes Cast A Goth Shadow With New Single “Death Of Darkness”

Posted by Corinne Westbrook in News on March 3, 2023

The band will be touring the US later this spring with an appearance at Sick New World on the books.

The goth glam maestros in The 69 Eyes have announced their new studio album, The Death Of Darkness, due out on April 21st, with physical versions hitting the US on May 5th. To celebrate the announcement, the band has treated us to the title track. Embodying their signature style supernatural meets sensual, occult meets glamour, the track calls for rainy, neon lit streets walked in our bleakest of moments. Pre-orders are available HERE.

“’Death Of Darkness’ is a song about love,” comments frontman Jyrki 69. “Love leads us to the light. Very simple. It sounds like it was written some twenty-five years ago. It’s melancholic goth rock like we knew it in 2001.”

Of the new album, he adds: “We wanted to spread our gospel further and further. The main motivation of this band is to keep going, to please our loyal fanbase, and to expand our audience. That’s why we released our first new single while we were still in the middle of working on the album. It’s a new approach for us, releasing a string of singles before we even announced the album. It kept everything really fresh and exciting and kept us on our toes which was a great motivator behind writing a killer album.”

Death Of Darkness will be available in the following the formats:

  • Digipak CD
  • Blue-Clear vinyl
  • Blood Red Marbled vinyl
  • Digital
