THE 69 EYES Frontman Comments on New Music Video

69 eyes Helsinki vampire rock outfit The 69 Eyes recently shot a video 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 be premiere next week.

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, 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."

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.
