After recently teaming up with DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara’s and his wife Anahstasia’s The Oracle Management, THE 69 EYES are ready to start a new chapter in their 30-year rock’n’roll saga.

”Before releasing the new album, we’re closing a chapter in our history, by returning to the homeland of ELVIS and THE RAMONES,” stated THE 69 EYES singer Jyrki 69. “We cannot wait to play in Memphis and New York and another 20 cities! It’s been way too long. Feels like we’re really back from the grave!”
