Who's ready to get their "love metal" on?! After a few years away, HIM are re-emerging this year with a brand new album called 'Tears on Tape,' and they've unveiled the first North American shows this year, with hopefully more to follow.
Finnish love metal phenoms HIM have unveiled details on their upcoming studio release. The band's eighth record, 'Tears on Tape,' is set to be released on April 30 in the U.S., while U.K. and Ireland audiences will have access to the album on April 29.
H.I.M. are in the homestretch of getting together their follow-up to 2010's 'Screamworks' album. Singer Ville Valo, who entered the studio with his band in September to begin working on a disc titled 'Tears on Tape,' says they've got a feel for the album that's a blend of "melancholy" and "Motorhead."
There is some good news for H.I.M. fans! Even though the Finnish love metalers have been off the radar for some time they are set to release a compilation disc ‘XX – Two Decades of Love Metal’ which includes a never-before-heard song.
The Finnish love metalers of H.I.M captured many hearts with their single ‘Right Here in My Arms’ off of their second studio album ‘Razorblade Romance.’ With frontman Ville Valo’s deep vocals and some serious riffs provided by lead guitarist Linde, the tune is a possessive love song with lots of edge -- who doesn’t love that?
If you’re missing the Finnish love metalers of H.I.M., you’re not alone. Even though the band’s manager Seppo Vesterinen confirmed that Ville Valo and the gang would release a new record in 2012 the release date and progression of the upcoming disc are still hazy.
