HIM - To Begin Working On New Album In 2015

The Finns HIM released their last album Tears On Tape back in 2013. Now the band's singer Ville Valo has confirmed that the band plans to work on new music in 2015. Currently touring in the U.S., they will conclude their 2014 schedule with a hometown show on New Year's Eve and take a little break before working on the next release.

Valo recently told KWSS-FM Scottsdale, Arizona: "We're playing one show on New Year's Eve in Helsinki and then that's gonna be it for touring for a while, because then we'll have been on the road more or less, on and off, for about a year and a half. So that's a long time for us. So it'd be nice to sit down for a wee bit and start working on some new stuff. So this is gonna be our not a 'farewell,' per se, but sort of like a 'bye bye for now' tour, so it'll be a fun one."

The band will also release Lashes To Ashes, Lust To Dust: A Vinyl Retrospective '96-'03, a collection of the four early HIM studio albums encompassing the group's early catalog, on heavy weight 180gram vinyl, as well as the band's debut 1996 EP 666 Ways To Love: Prologue on 180gram heavy weight vinyl for the first time ever. Includes an exclusive Heartagram logo slipmat and a USB drive with 37 bonus tracks, 80 tracks all together, all re-mastered. It will be out in North America on December 23rd.

They've lost it a long time ago, starting with dark light...

I wished they did sth heavy as Venus Doom again. The last album was a small step towards that.
