Love Metal Archives Tour has been announced!
12/09 WEBSTER HALL, NEW YORK
And unless you’ve been living under a rock, or you’ve just fallen victim to The End Records’ poor promotion of the band, then you’ve probably heard of the reissues that were originally set to be released during the summer. Well that time has come and gone, but we do have a release date along with a whole list of information. The details are too long to list, but to summarize you can get the first 4 albums completely remastered along with some unreleased material and even the EP “666 Ways To Love: Prologue” on Vinyl. Of course there some other stuff and many different package choices, but I’ll let the website explain the exact details. Just click the picture for more information.
HIM is set to tour the UK starting in October. Team Heartagram has announced that the Official HIM Street Team UK has created an official poll to vote on songs that you’d like to hear that the band rarely or never plays. Results will be sent to the band and if they see a popular demand on at least few of the songs, they might consider adding them to the setlist.
So please, share this poll and vote!

HIM will be back in the US later this year with the Rock Allegiance Tour, featuring Volbeat, All That Remains, and Airbourne. If you didn’t get a chance to catch the Tears on Tour, then don’t miss your chance to catch the boys this time around.
Myself and a couple of the good folks on the forum will be in Houston. Feel free to join us. We’ll be the cool dudes hanging out by the hot dog vendor. For more dates, follow the tour @RockAllegiance or on Facebook. Or visit their site.

Update: The North American dates in May were the only dates affected. Download Festival and the remaining dates are still on. Ville has been diagnosed with severe asthma with presumptive pneumonia.
Earlier: The band’s official Twitter announced that the band has cancelled the rest of the tour. No reason has been confirmed, but it’s said that Ville was hospitalized last night. Refunds will be given to all ticket holders, as no make up dates will be made.
First and foremost, let’s hope he’s okay. We’ll keep you updated.
Tears on Tape is officially out! Unfortunately, the boys didn’t provide us many lyrics, so we were left to fend for ourselves.
That said, the citizens of the forum came together and began piecing the lyrics together. After listening to the album over and over (and over and over) again, I’ve decided that these are the best and most accurate version of the lyrics available so far.
Don’t agree? Feel free to discuss. Or better yet, do it your damn self. Extra special thanks to Inferno, DSC5LU, xxDarkxDecemberxx, and all of the forum members who were guessing shit like the rest of us. I know for sure that we have a few of these 100% correct…(see what I did there?)
Unleash The Red
All Lips Go Blue
Love Without Tears
I Will Be The End Of You
Tears On Tape
Into The Night
Hearts At War
Trapped In Autumn
Drawn & Quartered
Kiss The Void
Also, don’t forget to catch HIM on the road. We’re already getting new Media and I can’t wait to hear the upcoming shows!
Get a sneak peek at the Metal Hammer fanpack! The magazine looks amazing. You can view the forward written by Dani Filth, view pictures, and get a look at some of the artwork that will be included in the fanpack.
The magazine is 132 pages, and judging by these 12 pages, I think everyone who ordered the fanpack will be satisfied.
