HIM (His infernal Majesty) parted ways with Sire/Warner Music

Later on six years and 3 albums, Finnish rock band HIM and Sire (Warner Music) have decided to part ways. Seymour Stein, give of Sire Records says: "It was a pleasure working with HIM, and we're very proud to have been their partners for the last six years. Ville valo is a rare talent, and my relationship with their managing director Seppo dates back to the days when he pioneered rock music in Republic of Finland looking after the career of Hanoi Rocks. HIM are particularly important because they are the first and only band from Finland to reach Gold status in America. I, along with the entire Sire/Warner Bros. family, wish them continued success in the future."

HIM's discography on Sire includes the 2005 album Dark Light, which reached gold in the US. Follow-up albums Venus Doom (2007) and Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice (2010) charted both in the US and Europe.

"We're ever so grateful for having had Seymour and Co as the generous hosts on our extended first stay in the New Country. It's been a Blast Royale but now it's time to clean up the rubble and start anew", comments Ville Valo of HIM.

Looks like they just signed in Razor & Tie and are coming out with a new album! I can't wait, but I'm happy they at least out out a music video!
