About The 69 Eyes
The 69 Eyes was founded in 1990 as a sleaze and garage rock band in Helsinki. Through appearances in local clubs they got a contract with the Finnish underground label Gaga Goodies, where they released their debut album Bump 'n' Grind in 1992, followed by three other albums - Motor City Resurrection_, Savage Garden and Wrap Your Troubles in Dreams. Around 1999 Roadrunner Records signed the group, followed by the first internationally released album Wasting The Dawn. The same-named single release, on which Ville Valo provided background vocals, became a hit in Finland. The eleventh studio album Universal Monsters was released in 2016.
