The 69 Eyes Announces Digital EP "Love Runs Away"

Helsinki vampires The 69 Eyes, whose most recent album “X” was released last year, will release the digital “Love Runs Away” EP - including two previously unreleased bonus songs - via iTunes on February 1st, 2013. Pre-orders are available right here and the track listing is as follows:

1. Love Runs Away
2. Rosary Blue (feat. Kat Von D) (edit)
3. Dracula’s Castle

"Love Runs Away" - the third single and opening track of “X” that has by now already become a live favorite – carries pure rocking metal riffs and a chorus with a bulletproof hook line. Singer Jyrki69 comments: “This is the most obvious single track from the album and already works great on stage, so it’s about time to release it as a proper single!”

The larger than life ballad duet "Rosary Blue," on which Jyrki is accompanied by tattoo artist and “L.A. Ink” star Kat Von D, is the first of two never before heard bonus tracks. "We’ve known each other for some years and since Kat is also starting to make music, I thought it would be interesting to have her on board. The song is amazing and with her help, it turned out even more magical – it’s like our own Stairway to Heaven," states the front man.

The final track "Dracula’s Castle" can be considered pure rockabilly – or rather gothabilly! Jyrki shares its background: "The Fuzztones is one of my all-time favourite bands and I’ve got to know their leader Rudi Protrudi a bit. We wrote this track with him in Berlin one night before our show and he actually even sings backing vocals on it. Words can’t describe the feeling of making music with your own idol – I still can’t believe it! The song is like a Scooby Doo-on-acid-by-Helloween kind of gothabilly track. Should be a radio hit too by any standards!”
