Helsinki Vampires THE 69 EYES have shot a music video for the upcoming single “Red,” this past weekend with renowned director Patric Ullaeus (DIMMU BORGIR, DREAM EVIL, IN FLAMES, EUROPE)! The single is going to be released August 10, 2012 via Nuclear Blast.
Check out a teaser for the song at this location: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ElX51HfXOvw
Find a picture from the set plus commentary by singer Jyrki69 below.
"We've known the director Patric for years and been talking nearly a decade of doing a video with him. So it was about the time finally! Since the whole new upcoming album X is our ‘made in Sweden’ record, it was natural to shoot a video with a Swedish director and in Sweden. I really loved David Fincher's movie ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’ which is set in Sweden and wanted some of that kind of vibe to be in this video too.
We shot the video in the Bjertorp Slott mansion outside of Gothenburg. It's a mystery scene in the most beautiful Swedish countryside with fast sports cars, Playboy playmates and the Helsinki Vampires!
When THE 69 EYES make videos, it always is more based on pleasure in contrary to the recording session. And that's how it was again this time!"
