Helldone 2012 celebrates HIM stepping into the third decade of their career. The October 26 release of the compilation "XX - Two Decades Of Love Metal" will tie up any loose ends, and that includes a brand new September single called 'Strange World'. Then it is time to move on.

In fact HIM has already moved on - after taking a well earned sabbatical the band is once again bursting with energy. They have entered the studio with producer Hiili Hiilesmaa to record their eighth studio album, tentatively named "Tears On Tape". The album will be mixed by Tim Palmer, and is scheduled for an early 2013 release.

"I'm pretty sure that a song or two from those sessions will find their way into the live set come Helldone", Ville Valo predicts.

Supporting HIM on all Helldone 2012 dates are their longtime partners in crime, THE SKREPPERS. This outrageous band fronted by producer/friend Hiilesmaa has stuck stubbornly to its blurry vision, operating somewhere between the psychobilly badlands, and rock & roll outer space. All dressed up in black leather, shiny vinyl, and stiletto heels. The Skreppers' fifth album "Sherwood Gays" was released in May 2012.

Another constant Helldone 2012 feature - bar New Year's Eve - will be HELSINKI VAMPIRE CLUB by DJ JYRKI69. From Goth to Glam and beyond, DJ Jyrki69 spins the records and You around at his pop-up dark discotheque at Semifinal Club during the Helldone nights. This is the best place to dance to the beat of Hanoi Rocks and turn into a Helsinki Vampire!
