Good news for rock fans, especially HIM fans – VV aka Ville Valo will be performing at Rock City in March and tickets go on sale soon!
🖤 VV VILLE VALO
📅 SATURDAY 11TH MARCH 2023
🏛️ ROCK CITY NOTTINGHAM
VV is the former frontman of gothic rockers HIM who had a stonking rock career lasting over 25 years and eight awesome studio albums 🤘🤘 This week he has announced he will be releasing brand new music for the first time in two years!! In a cryptic post on his Instagram, he confirmed that there will be “New music from VV April 8th”. It also included the iconic ‘heartagram’ logo of HIM and some gothy piano (of course!). This will be the first new music since his three-track EP Gothica Fennica Vol.1 in March 2020 🖤🖤
HIM played their final show in Helsinki on New Years Eve 2017, and Ville has been relatively quiet since then. At the time he said:
“I don’t know what’s going to happen next,” (speaking with Metal Hammer in an exclusive interview). “To feel better and to not be a depressed **** you need to do something about it. I’ve picked up the guitar many a time and written songs for HIM that were never rehearsed because of the un-enthusiasm we felt for the collective work, and I just don’t want to be working on it right now. HIM needs to get out of the way for me to start afresh, and it’s going to be nice to let the songs lead the way. I don’t know if it’ll be post black-metal shoegaze stuff or not…:”
So, are we in for some post-black-metal-shoegaze?? Let’s find out! 😱😱
