- THE FIRST U.S. TOUR IN A DECADE -
The last time that goth rock legends The 69 Eyes toured the United States, was in 2009. As the band has been busy conducting business as usual, releasing albums and touring elsewhere, the US has been waiting very long for the return of the Helsinki Vampires.
After recently teaming up with DEVILDRIVER frontman Dez Fafara’s and his wife Anahstasia’s The Oracle Management, THE 69 EYES are ready to start a new chapter in their 30-year rock ’n’ roll saga.
”Before releasing the new album, we’re closing a chapter in our history, by returning to the homeland of ELVIS and THE RAMONES," stated THE 69 EYES singer Jyrki Linnankivi. "We cannot wait to play in Memphis and New York and another 20 cities! It’s been way too long. Feels like we’re really back from the grave!”
+ SUPPORT FROM
Offering hope through honesty showered from broken beats, dark pianos, angry synthesizers, and Ariel’s unparalleled hypnotic voice, MXMS carves yet another name on the genre tree…funeral pop.
MXMS challenges our darkness to come to light through sound and visual stimuli in the same blunt and dramatic fashion that the duo’s influencers Massive Attack, Tricky and others began during the renaissance of technological music.
THE NOCTURNAL AFFAIR
The Nocturnal Affair is the alternative/dark rock project headed by singer/songwriter Brendan Shane. The band’s crushing and melancholic musical style is an ode to dark rock and metal torchbearers like Type O Negative, HIM and Nine Inch Nails while capturing a uniquely haunting sound steeped in downtrodden melodies enveloped in the darkness behind the glow of the Las Vegas lights where Shane has called home.
The group has performed alongside a wide array of artists from heavy metal heavyweights like HELLYEAH, Asking Alexandria and Pop Evil, Industrial rockers My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult and The 69 Eyes while also being accessible enough to share the stage with notable mainstream acts like 3 Doors Down and Black Stone Cherry.
MAN1K1N are a Boston, MA based electronic/darkwave project founded by singer Johnny Veil and drummer Cristian Carver.
MAN1K1N’s sound takes its calling from early 90’s industrial/ trip hop to contemporary EBM/Darkwave. Heavy in its slow intensity and visceral with a groove when it needs to be. Emotionally driven and unapologetically confrontational is MAN1K1N’s sonic dialogue and their stage presence is no different, if not more.
ATTRACTION TO TRADEGY
Metalcore misfits Attraction to Tragedy hail from Worcester, MA.
With their 2016 debut album, Passion Over Fashion, Attraction To Tragedy are ready to prove that style and substance can coexist.
Their influences include Funeral For A Friend, It Dies Today, Aiden, Darkest Hour and Trivium to name but a few.
