To celebrate its 30th anniversary, the Helsinki Vampires are back home in Europe this autumn, announcing 18 events in ten countries. Founded in Finland in 1989, the dark rockers of The 69 Eyes have shaped the genre of Goth’n’Roll like no other band. With a number of platinum-topped albums in the repertoire, such as Blessed Be and Paris Kills, which appeared around the turn of the millennium, the quintet has not only captured number1 in the single and album charts of their native Finland, but also the whole world in overthrown their sinful cosmos of love, death, and endless melancholy, surviving most of the other bands that emerged in the Goth hype of the 200s. With the further development of their sound towards Sleaze Rock on Devils (2004) and Angels (2007), the majestic dark voice and the Elvis allusions in the vocal moves of vocalist Jyrki 69, the band has built up a great fanbase worldwide relentless tours in Europe, America, Asia and Australia are further consolidated. This year, the band is celebrating its 30th anniversary, but does not even think about slowing down, but is announcing its new studio work West End, which will be released on Nuclear Blast on Friday, September 13th. This 12th longplayer comes along with some high profile guest vocalists, like Cradle Of Filth’s Dani Filth, Wednesday 13 and Beastö Blanco’s Calico Cooper, and consists of eleven up-tempo rock hymns, full of heaviness, dark memento mori moments and black humor.
