31 Songs Of Halloween: The 69 Eyes: Devils7.10.15
In 2004 the Helsinki vampires signed to EMI and released their major label debut, their seventh album in total, Devils. The band had already had their breakthrough with their previous record, so the Devils' big success was no surprise, as they were already international stars. That year The 69 Eyes toured the UK with Wednesday 13 and played in fifteen different countries in support of the album. Their first ever US tour came in 2006, when Devils was still hot.
On Devils the band maintain a nice balance between the guitar driven sleaze rock of their early days and the gothic themes they incorporated into their act later. Artistically they've done better, both before and after it. Commercially, Devils is their highest peak.
