Heartagrammers of the world, unite. Fans of the head down, delightfully dark Finnish band HIM have a huge treasure trove on the horizon. It's something to look forward this fall. It is a light on an otherwise bleak landscape, right?
HIM have been a cultural phenomenon in the alternative rock world for over two decades. They are excited about the upcoming release of an exclusive limited edition box set, titled Lashes to Ashes, Lust to Dust: A Vinyl Retrospective '96-'03, out on November 25 via The End Records.
The boxset includes the rare debut 1996 EP 666 Ways to Love: Prologue on 180-gram heavyweight vinyl for the first time ever, along with an exclusive Heartagram logo slipmat and a USB drive with 37 bonus tracks and 80 tracks all together, all re-mastered.
Also to be released on November 25, four of their iconic albums, Greatest Love Songs Vol. 666, Razorblade Romance, Deep Shadows and Brilliant Highlights and Love Metal, will be released in multiple configurations, all re-mastered with bonus tracks, exclusive liner notes and special packaging.
"We feel truly blessed to have our sonic offspring of yore being given a new lease of life in the U.S. by The End Records, the home for many of our aural idols, both old and new. For the past months, the infamous 'Love Metal' archives have been extensively scoured by us for rare, exclusive and downright scary musical nuggets for an experience in Finnish melancholy like no other, so please consider yourself warned…," said Ville Valo, lead vocalist of HIM.

In support of the deluxe re-mastered releases, HIM will be embarking on a National tour this December.
