    "WASTING THE DAWN" was The 69 Eyes's first international release on ROADRUNNER RECORDS. In 1999 with its unique concept of Gothic melancholy mixed with hi-energy rock'n'roll roots of the band, the album not only brought some long-waited fresh blood into the Gothic scene but also launched a new term to the media: GOTH'N'ROLL. The album's epic melanGothic TOP 10 hit single "WASTING THE DAWN" paid a tribute to The DOORS' Jim Morrison and even had HIM's Ville Valo posing at a snowy cemetery as Mr. Mojo Risin' on its video. The band is said to be the missing link between The Cult and Type O Negative.

    In the spring 2000 the band released a single "GOTHIC GIRL" which changed everything. Months on the Singles TOP 10 and on the Finnish national radio's playlists "GOTHIC GIRL" brought the first gold record to the band. Like this gold-gone taster single the highly anticipated new album "BLESSED BE" was produced by JOHNNY LEE MICHAELS who as "the sixth member" of the band did all the arrangements and handles all keyboards and programming on the album as well. As Johnny Lee Michaels has also been known as a film music composer, the present BLESSED soundscape of The 69 Eyes is somewhere between epic and melanGothic yet with vibes of movies "Sleepy Hollow"-meets-"Matrix" - without forgetting the shadows of "The Crow"...

    Right after the BLESSED BE sessions in August 2000 The 69 Eyes did their first short WASTING THE DAWN-based German tour which also included a show at the huge Mera Luna Gothic festival. As the support band on this tour was the fast rising Norwegian electro-Goths Zeromancer. The tour closed the first chapter and opened the new one...

    "BLESSED BE" was released on the same date in September 2000 as The 69 Eyes got their gold records from the first single of it. The album rose straight to number 4 in the Finnish Album Charts and stayed over month in TOP 10 (3 months in TOP 40). The second single from the album was "BRANDON LEE" which also became a huge power-play radio hit and the single stayed 14 weeks in TOP 20. In the "GOTHIC GIRL" video the Crow-meets-Matrix like vision featured black Goth-hop dancers in the rubber nun dresses but "BRANDON LEE" with a mid-nightly dark teenage Romeo and Juliet dream was the video which became one the most requested videos for months in the music channel German VIVA2.

    The band spent the rest of year touring almost three months in Finland playing sold-out shows everywhere. Still surprised the band was voted in the biggest Finnish music magazine Soundi for NUMBER 1 in the Best Finnish Band, Album and Song categories - actually "Brandon Lee" was number one and "Gothic Girl" number two! Also the biggest German Gothic magazine Orkus, on the cover of which Jyrki was in October issue, voted the Eyes on the tops of the year 2000.

    The third BLESSED single and video release was dark and moody "THE CHAIR" which rose straight number 2 on the Finnish Single Charts in February 2001and continued The 69 Eyes' "hit list" on the airwaves.

    The fourth BLESSED single "STOLEN SEASON" is released in May as the band tours in Germany with Paradise Lost and gets ready for the European summer festival season.
