H.I.M. will be embarking on a U.S. tour with AIDEN beginning on May 2. The venues on the trek are still being confirmed, but the tour is expected to run through June 9.
In other news, the Spanish web site Terra.es has uploaded three high-quality video clips from H.I.M.'s live performance in Madrid on March 3, 2006. Check them out:
"Killing Loneliness" (Windows Media)
"It's All Tears (Drown in This Love)" (Windows Media)
"Join Me" (Windows Media)
As previously reported, H.I.M. were scheduled to film a new video for their song "Killing Loneliness" after the video's original version had met with a "poor American response," according to the group's frontman, Ville Valo. H.I.M. will be joined in the new clip — which is being directed by Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, KORN, LINKIN PARK, STAIND, DISTURBED) — by noted Heartagram tattoo artist Kat Von D — whose work has been featured on the TV show "Miami Ink".

"Killing Loneliness" comes off H.I.M.'s latest album, "Dark Light", which has sold 331,000 copies in the United States since its late September release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The follow-up to 2003's "Love Metal" was recorded in Los Angeles and mixed at New York's Electric Lady studios with producer Tim Palmer (DAVID BOWIE, OZZY OSBOURNE).
