With Heaven’s Basement entering Loudwire’s Cage Match Hall of Fame it’s time for two new bands and their brand new singles to duke it out!

Finnish love metalers HIM heat things up with their new tune ‘Tears on Tape’ off of their forthcoming album by the same name, which is due out April 30. The band has also announced dates for a North American tour. To see their string of dates and cities, go here.

Queens of the Stone Age take the matchup by storm with their fresh new track ‘My God Is the Sun’ off of their highly anticipated record ‘…Like Clockwork’ to be released June 4. The band has not unveiled a full tour itinerary, but they are scheduled to play numerous music festivals worldwide such as the Made in America Festival in Philiadelphia and this year’s Download Festival in the UK.

So will HIM’s ‘Tears on Tape’ get them a win or will Queens of the Stone Age shine with ‘My God Is the Sun.’ Get in on the action by listening to both tracks and voting for your favorite in the poll below!

(This Cage Match will run until Friday, April 19, at 8AM ET. Fans can vote once per hour! So come back and vote often to make sure your favorite song wins!)

Rules of Cage Match:
Fans can vote once per hour for their favorite song. If a song remains the reigning champ for five straight cage matches, it is retired to the Loudwire Cage Match Hall of Fame. With so many great songs out there, we have to give other bands a chance!
