69 Eyes at work on 11th album

The 69 Eyes have begun recording what will be their 11th album.

The follow-up to 2012 record X is expected early next year and it’s being produced by Johnny Lee Michaels.

Vocalist Jyrki 69 says: “We’re currently in the studio in Helskinki. It’s coming out really good – it feels like a record I’ve always wanted us to do.

“If you happened to like those albums we made earlier with Johnny, you’ll love this one too. The first single will come out later this year.”

The Finnish outfit launched digital EP Love Runs Away in 2013, followed by compilation title The Best Of Helsinki Vampires nine months later.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
