HIM to play 2 shows as special guests for Fields of the Nephilim’s 30th anniversary shows
From Facebook:

We are very pleased to announce Finnish rock heroes HIM as Very Special Guests for the Fields Of The Nephilim 30th Anniversary shows at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on December 5th & 6th.
Legendary gothic-rock heroes Fields Of The Nephilim follow their headline appearance at O2 Academy Brixton last December with two dates at O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire to celebrate 30 years of their unique existence.
They will be joined on both nights by very special guests HIM, the hugely successful Finnish rock band led by lifelong Fields of the Nephilim fan Ville Valo.
Says Carl McCoy, frontman and founder of Fields Of The Nephilim: “We are very pleased to welcome Ville Valo and HIM as our special invited guests to the Fields Of The Nephilim 30th anniversary celebrations in London later this year. We played alongside HIM at their own festival in Finland some years ago at their personal request, so we are now able to return the compliment. HIM will enhance these shows by casting their very own respected craft and aura, making it memorable for all those who join us.”
Says Ville Valo: “Crafting and crooning such demonically delightful ditties for three decades is no mean feat, and we’re extremely excited and fiercely flattered to be invited to join the festivities by sonically honouring the past, present and future of Fields Of The Nephilim!!!”
These two shows are far from being solely a chance to reflect on the Nephilim’s momentous past. In fact Carl McCoy has just announced that the first new material from Fields Of The Nephilim since 2005’s stunning album ‘Mourning Sun’ will be unveiled soon.
“Now is the chance for me to let go and release some new Nephilim tracks which have been constrained to the studio for some time. Trying to concentrate the work and thoughts down to a simple single objective is always a difficult practice but that’s the nature of the beast… easy to find the beginning but always hard to reach the end” – Carl McCoy
More details of these new recordings will be revealed soon.
Tickets for the 30th anniversary celebration concerts are on sale now from all usual outlets priced at £25.

I have a few questions about your HIM tattoo: is that the only HIM tattoo that you have? Did it hurt getting it behind your ear, and do you think you could post a healed photo of it? Thanks! :-)
  1. Yes it is.
  2. Surprisingly, no, at least not for me. All tattoos hurt to some extent, but I must have thick skin around my skull. Literally the only thing that I felt was my artist’s hands behind my ear, and that was it. All people are different though, so your pain tolerance might differ from mine if you’re considering getting a tattoo in the same location.
  3. I will as soon as my sister gets home, as it is a hard feat to accomplish when you’re trying to hold back crazy, frizzy hair and take a photo at the right angle :P

Just a quick, cheesy note

I missed this blog’s 4 year anniversary by quite a few days, but I still just wanted to thank each and every one of you for all of your continued support over these ridiculously quick (!!!) 4 years. I created this blog on a whim, and it’s been one of the best decisions that I’ve ever made (at least internet-wise). I’m glad I’ve been able to share my mutual love and appreciation of this band with thousands of you, and even had the privilege of calling quite a few of you fellow fans out there my friend. You guys have all been great though, and I’m thankful for each and every one of you :)

Hello do think the other5 Screamworks demos from Pickup Lines From Hell-Part 1 will ever leak?

Sorry for getting to this late! I didn’t know that the demos had a name (#lame), but currently, I only have two. I’m not sure if any others have leaked besides the two that I’ve heard, or if they will. Perhaps with more time, but as always, time will tell.

HIM are not going into studio in August nor are they even thing of recording new album. These are just rumors started by some random HIM fanpage. Official uk street team has it confirmed via Gas that they are not making new album just yet

Figured as much! I’ve been hella busy the past few weeks, hence the quietness over here, and really haven’t paid attention to la fábrica de rumores, u feel me. Anyway, thanks for clearing up the matter, bby!

also apparently they're starting recording on a new album in August

This is another thing I’m gonna say that’s highly unlikely, just because of their touring schedule. Plus, we’re just coming up to the year mark of the first birthday of Tears On Tape. They usually tend to release new albums every 2 to 3 years.

If they really are intending to record new material in August, I’m going to be seriously impressed.

Saw rumors on twitter that Ville is apparently now engaged

Haha, any time that he’s had a girlfriend he’s been “engaged”. The only woman that he’s been engaged to, that I know of, was Jonna Nygren. There’s a certain website in the HIM “fandom” (or whatever you wanna call it) that uses the method of yellow headlines to grab attention to their work and a lot of people are mislead. 

I think it’s pretty much well known that he’s dating that Sandra chick, but I highly doubt he’s engaged.
