HELSINKI, FINLAND – Helsinki vampireoutfit The 69 Eyes recently shot a for the hit single “Borderline” together with famous producer Patric Ullaeus over in New Orleans. The song comes off the band’s most recent album X, and the clip will premiere this week.
The 69 Eyes – “Borderline”
Commented lead vampire Jyrki9:
“It’s like our ‘Love Me Tender’ – a soft, timeless ballad. But it also has that dark, mystic Southern vibe (some said True Blood), so naturally we had to go to Louisiana to shoot the video! Mark Twain’s books, Elvis, ‘King Creole,’ ‘Easy Rider,’ blues, jazz, voodoo,– so many reasons for The 69 Eyes go to N’awlins. We’ve played there twice; I’ve hosted two DJ club nights there called ‘Fangtasia’ over the last two summers. The leading rock/metal video of these latter days, Swedish Patric Ullaeus was also interested in coming to NOLA to make this masterpiece, so all was set for it! The mid-October was perfect for a long-lost weekend in the South.”
The video starts with a scene in which the local vampire tour legend Lord Chaz draws five X’s on the crypt door of the Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau’s resting place in Saint Louis Cemetery #1. “Easy Rider’s” famous psychedelic scene was also filmed there.
The 69 Eyes released its 10th studio album X last month in North America via Nuclear Blast.
Fans can order X online via iTunes, complete with the bonus track “Rosary Blue” featuring Kat Von D, the “Red” music video plus digital booklet. Physical copies of X can be ordered via Nuclear Blast.
