Jyrki69 Announces West Coast US Tour With MGT


Los Angeles, CA - Goth rock icon Jyrki 69, lead vocalist for Helsinki’s brooding metal band, The 69 Eyes, has announced a special West Coast tour with their Cleopatra Records labelmates MGT, the frontman for multi-platinum selling Finnish goth n’ rollers The 69 EYES.

Jyrki has put together an exciting live band for this tour including; Ace Von Johnson (Faster Pussycat) on guitar, Ashes (DevilDriver, Static-X) on bass and Kyle Cunningham (Madlife) on drums. The live set promises to offer a healthy chunk of Jyrki69’s debut solo album “Helsinki Vampire” along with a few 69 Eyes favorites and some very special surprise numbers.

“What happens when the members of The Mission, Peter Murphy, Faster Pussycat & The 69 Eyes meet at the Rainbow Bar & Grill? Put on your sunglasses after dark & come to find out!” - Jyrki 69

Jyrki 69’s long-awaited debut album, Helsinki Vampire, was produced, mixed, and mastered by longtime The 69 Eyes producer Johnny Lee Michaels. The record builds on the distinctive “goth n’ roll” sound that The 69 Eyes honed over the course of a dozen albums while adding a more richly textured, darkly romantic atmosphere.
