The 69 Eyes release dark new summer single “Call Me Snake” and start pre-order for new vinyl EP “Drive”

Author Flavia Andrade - 9.7.2022

After 12 studio albums and several #1 chart positions in Finland, The 69 Eyes don’t even think of slowing down. Not only did they announced a massive European Tour from October till December 2022, but they are also working on a new full-length release that will see the light of day in early 2023. In the meantime, the Helsinki Vampires allow no rest for the wicked and are now releasing a brand new single: “Call Me Snake” is your dark summer hit, mixing an ’80s gothic vibe with hard rocking guitars. Imagine The Stooges meeting early Ministry and ’90s horror movies, and a track that shines through its simplicity yet still offers a crazy twist around every corner.

Singer Jyrki 69 comments:

“It’s 1997 in John Carpenter’s ‘Escape From New York’ sci-fi classic and Kurt Russell as Snake Plissken saves the world. These are the thematic elements for The 69 Eyes’ new summer hit ”Call Me Snake” and the world will be saved again!”

You can stream or download “Call Me Snakehere.

On September 16th, The 69 Eyes will release a strictly limited vinyl EP, “Drive”, including the three brand-new tracks of this year and one bonus live song:
1. Drive
2. Call Me Snake
3. California
4. Two Horns Up (Live) – only available on vinyl, not digitally
