As we mentioned last week, The 69 Eyes would be releasing their for “Borderline.” It’s out now, and it’s epic. It’s odd how a band from Finland is able to capture the essence of New Orleans, and even of classic American sounds, better than our natives. The “Borderline” video seems to incorporate everything that New Orleans is, or at least what outsiders perceive it to be.
The video was directed by Patric Ullaeus, and the official press release stated the following:
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’ latest album, X, is out now and available at iTunes, complete with the bonus track “Rosary Blue” featuring Kat Von D, the “Red” music video, plus a digital booklet. Physical copies of X can be ordered via the Nuclear Blast web-store
