Finnish "love metallers" HIM have set "Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice" as the title of their new album, tentatively due in February 2010 via Warner Bros. Records worldwide. The CD will be recorded in August at a Los Angeles studio with producer Matt Squire, who has previously worked with TAKING BACK SUNDAY, THE USED, PANIC AT THE DISCO, BOYS LIKE GIRLS and THRICE, among others.
The news of HIM's recording plans was first revealed by the band's vocalist, Ville Valo, during a June 9, 2009 interview with the Renegade Radio Network. That chat is now available for streaming in two parts below.
HIM's last studio album, "Venus Doom", sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 12 on The Billboard 200 chart. Its predecessor, "Dark Light", has shifted 580,000 units in the U.S. to date.
HIM's CD/DVD set, "Digital Versatile Doom: Live at the Orpheum Theatre", was released in April 2008. The live portion of the DVD was recorded/filmed at the band's November 14-15, 2007 concerts at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. "Digital Versatile Doom" also features a second disc, with the full live performance from The Orpheum Theater and a 16-page booklet of original art and images.
