THE 69 EYES unveils new video “Borderline”

Helsinki vampire rockers, THE 69 EYES, have posted their new video for the hit single “Borderline” . The track comes off their 10th studio album "X". The video clip can be seen below.

The singer Jyrki69 comments:
“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 also 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”.

The video starts with a scene in which the local vampire tour legend Lord Chaz draws five Xs 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.
