HIM's Ville Valo talks about new drummer and upcoming album


HIM's Ville Valo was recently interviewed by MDR Jump, you can read some excerpts below.


About when fans can expect to see HIM's new album, Ville said: "Hopefully it's gonna happen sometime next year. It's an interesting time for us, since our previous drummer left the band in February. So now we have a new guy, and that's also one of the reasons why we're not playing more gigs here in Germany. We're just doing a few shows to, kind of, like, test the waters, see how the chemistry works within the band with a new guy. And everything is going splendid, which is great, because replacing a longtime drummer is not the easiest thing. We had the same drummer for fifteen years, and then, all of a sudden, now we have to find somebody who would actually fill that hole, so to speak. But he's doing a great job. So, hopefully, yeah, we go back home in about a week, and then start, little by little, working on the new stuff, which would mean that, if we're lucky, it would be out in a year. So, Christmas next year, I'd say."
