The 69 Eyes are due to release their 9th studio album Back In Blood on September 15th, via The End Records. The first single is the tongue-in-cheek ‘Dead Girls Are Easy’ – a nasty power anthem for sleazy pin-ups complete with a sing-a-long chorus aimed at those online chicks with the looks that kill! The video will be directed by MTV superstar and close friend Bam Margera, who was also responsible for the Eyes’ rock homage to ‘80s cult movie ‘The Lost Boys’.

They’re still hungry.

The band has released seven studio albums, the most recent of which is A Twisted Christmas from 2006, and numerous live albums and compilations. Stay Hungry is their third album, released in 1984, and it quickly went triple platinum on the strength of two of the most iconic songs of the mid-80s, “I Wanna Rock” and “We’re Not Going To Take It.” Now, on June 30, Rhino will re-release the album with a number of bonuses, including a brand new song, “30,” written by Dee Snider, Marc Beeman, and Sharon Lawson.

Band to Perform Songs from The July 14 Release of LEAVE THIS TOWN, the Follow-Up to Its Quintuple-Platinum Debut
Tickets Go on Sale July 11; Daughtry Will Offer a Free Ticket to the First 50 Fans In Each Market Who Pre-Order LEAVE THIS TOWN at www.DaughtryOfficial.com
Daughtry will embark upon a short club tour this August, starting just weeks after the release of LEAVE THIS TOWN (19 Recordings/RCA Music Group), the follow-up to the band’s Grammy-nominated and quintuple-platinum debut.
Singer Chris Daughtry, bassist Josh Paul, drummer Joey Barnes, and guitarists Brian Craddock and Josh Steely will use the intimate shows to perform many of the songs from the new album on stage for the first time. The 13-date tour will kick off August 2 in Orlando, FL and end August 22 in Las Vegas, NV. Tickets go on sale July 11. Daughtry will offer limited VIP packages as a pre-sale July 8th – 10th. Additionally, the band will also give a free ticket to the first 50 fans in each market who pre-order LEAVE THIS TOWN from www.DaughtryOfficial.com.
“This club tour is a thank you to our loyal fans. Its a great way for them to see us up close and, more importantly, at a cheap price,” says singer Chris Daughtry.
More than a month before its official release, LEAVE THIS TOWN is already generating considerable buzz for its musical range.
Rolling Stone: “The surprisingly diverse results include everything from the clubby ‘Supernatural’ to the fiddle-driven Vince Gill duet ‘Tennessee Line.'” … “‘Call Your Name’ [is] an anthem reminiscent of ‘November Rain,’ complete with a stirring key change, falsetto vocal runs and an explosive Slash-style guitar climax.”
Billboard: “And while Daughtry’s voice and rock riffs still play center stage to most of the album’s tracks, several songs take some creative chances. Daughtry wrote ‘You Don’t Belong’ on his own; it’s a hard-driving song that wouldn’t sound out of place on an Alice in Chains album.”
Daughtry will begin an extensive North American tour this fall.

EONIAN Records latest release comes to us from Chicago, IL in the form of “Conversation Piece” by Pistol Dawn. Originally formed in 1988 this four-piece is made up of Freddy “Faster” Brecht – Lead Vocals and Guitars, Scotti Ryan – Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals, Rob Stratton – Bass, & Don Ferguson – Drums. The band has toured with such acts as Cheap Trick, Dangerous Toys, Enuff Z’Nuff and Lillian Axe. Chip Z’nuff produced the band’s “Shot in the Act” e.p. and along with a touch of sleaze you can definitely hear Enuff Z’nuff influences on tracks like “Stocks & Blonds” & “Gone Away”. Like with most retro-releases the sound quality isn’t the greatest but this is by far the best release I have heard from Eonian so far.
The album’s title track kicks everything off with a sleazy hard driving beat from Stratton and Ferguson and some very nice playing from Ryan. Freddy Brecht’s vocals are also great on this song very hard to find anyone to compare his singing style too. “Dreams Come True” is a great catchy summer song, why this song did not get airplay back in the day is beyond me as it is custom built for radio and the same could be said for both “Be My Girl”, “Message In A Bottle”, and “HArd Way” as all three are filled with catchy hooks, great rhythm, and sing a long choruses. Scotti Ryan can definitely hold his own on guitar with just about anyone on stage today. “Gone Away” is a mid-tempo/ballad with a great guitar intro and playing throughout “Still Running Wild” and “Talk of the Town” get the band back into sleaze territory, with “Talk of the Town” being one of the best songs on the album. Fortunately Pistol Dawn saved the weakest track on the record for last with “Wish Upon A Star” because it would have definitely been a record killer if it was placed somewhere in the middle of the record.
If you’re looking an 80’s band that didn’t get a fair shake the first time around “Conversation Piece” and Pistol Dawn is a good place to start.
