TUSKA CELEBRATES 20TH ANNIVERSARY – HIM TO HEADLINE
That’s a fact: Finland’s longest running and boldest metal festival, Tuska, will be celebrated for the 20th time the coming summer. It’s been a long and rocky road from the depths of Tavastia-klubi, through two different outdoor venues to Suvilahti, where Tuska settled in 2011. The 20th anniversary will take place during the weekend of 30.6.-2.7.2017. Be sure to mark that in your calendars – in blood.
At last have the stars and hearts aligned, and HIM’s first ever Tuska-appearance is finally coming to fruition. HIM’s Tuska show has been in the works practically the entire existence of the festival. It’s also noteworthy that this will be HIM’s first outdoor show in their hometown Helsinki.

The 69 Eyes unveil music video 'Miss Pastis' and new tourdates
Helsinki Vampires THE 69 EYES are ready to unveil their new music video for "Miss Pastis". The song is a rock hymn about French alcohol & women with the simple chorus “Salut, ça va!” and comes off their latest morbid masterpiece »Universal Monsters«. The clip was once again directed and filmed by fronter Jyrki 69 himself and the Finnish quintet decided to release it on "La Fête Nationale", France’s National Day on July 14th.
“It’s a great driving rocker of a song which has already made people move in our live set. I got the idea for the lyrics in Marseille, France where pastis is cheap and girls are pretty. I shot the video in the gardens of Palace of Versailles – I wanted to make it look like crazy, little art film influenced by as much Jacques Tati as Federico Fellini and classic French films,” tells singer Jyrki 69.

But the Vampires have just been awaken and therefore, they also announced new tour dates for this November - and three special UK shows together with the legendary dark rocker from THE MISSION. Jyrki 69 states with excitement:
“I remember first time seeing the ‘Wasteland’ video on Sky Channel. It hit me hard, I even got the issue of SMASH Hits with Wayne on the cover! “God’s Own Medicine” is still one of my favorite albums and without a doubt THE 69 EYES wouldn’t sound like we do without THE MISSION. Can’t wait to get back to play in the UK and for the Eskimos!”
