"The song has a dark early 80's kind of vibe. I wrote the lyrics those Cold War-era times in my mind. Strangely the world has totally returned into those dark days again after recording the song," says The 69 Eyes vocalist Jyrki.

"It's been some 15 years since we recorded "Blessed Be" and "Paris Kills" albums with producer Johnny Lee Michaels here in Helsinki. You can consider "Universal Monsters" as a follow-up to those records. Nobody makes this kind of music anymore."

The Helsinki Vampires will tour in support of the new album, by far the tour dates are:
