Goth rock icon Jyrki 69, lead vocalist for Helsinki metal band, The 69 Eyes, has released a video for his macabre new song “Bloodlust” today at RollingStone.com. The track is featured on his debut solo record, Helsinki Vampire, which will be released on June 23rd via Cleopatra Records. Fans can pre-order the album now at iTunes: http://apple.co/2qcHqdV.
Jyrki 69’s new video for “Bloodlust” includes film footage from the upcoming movie “Sunset Society,” which will be released in Spring 2018 and stars the late rock-god and Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister making his last appearance post-mortem. The video also features cameos by Dizzy Reed (Guns N’ Roses), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns) and adult film legend Ron Jeremy, who also star in the forthcoming movie. “Sunset Society” is a film based on the iconic Sunset Strip about a pack of vampire rockers lead by Kilmister’s character. Jyrki 69’s portion of the music video for “Bloodlust” was filmed in Los Angeles at the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel. The music video was directed by Vicente and Fernando Cordero of Industralism Films.
Speaking about the video with RollingStone.com, Jyrki 69 says, ““Bloodlust” is “The Lost Boys” movie taken into modern day to the Sunset Strip. Aren’t we all so glad to see that Lemmy’s doing all right? He lives forever!”
Adding on the personal impact of Kilmister, Jyrki 69 says, “Motörhead is naturally always been more than just inspiration musically, it’s a whole lifestyle which Lemmy symbolises. Life suddenly has become harder without a new Motörhead album or tour behind the corner. I met the man many times over the course of decades all over the world. Never bothered him at the Rainbow Bar & Grill! I’m proud to have the General still on board! I actually showed the video to Ron Jeremy (who’s in it too) at the Rainbow Bar & Grill last weekend, he loved it!”
Jyrki 69 recently debuted a new video for his song “Last Halloween” from Helsinki Vampire.
