New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Warner Bros. Records) - Screamworks: Love In Theory
And Practice - the new album from Finland's hard-rock heroes HIM is released today by Sire Records. Recorded at The Lair in Los Angeles, the album was produced by Matt Squire (Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Saosin) and mixed by Neal Avron (Linkin Park, Weezer, Fall Out Boy). The video for 'Heartkiller,' the album's first single, premiered on MySpace in January.
Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice is HIM's seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2007's Venus Doom, which debuted at No. 12 in the U.S. and was nominated for a Grammy Award for 'Best Boxed/Special Limited Edition Packaging.' In 2007, HIM, which is Ville Valo (vocals), Mige (bass), Linde (guitar), Burton (keyboards), and Gas (drums) supported Metallica in Europe before joining the Linking Park-headlined Projekt Revolution tour across America, and headlined its own U.S. theater tour. The band's 2005 album Dark Light has the distinction of being the first album by a Finnish band to be certified gold in the U.S.
