THE 69 EYES - New Video Clip Online

  • Print

Helsinki vampires The 69 Eyes are back with another video clip from their latest album X released via Nuclear Blast Records this September. Video for ballad "Borderline" was shot in New Orleans (USA) with acclaimed producer and director Patric Ullaeus. 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. Their frontman Jyrki69 made next comment regarding this video: "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, vampires - 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 director 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." Watch the video below. Link
