Bad news arrive from HIM's camp today. The band has been forced to cancel their North American tour in support of their new album Tears On Tape because their vocalist Ville Valo has been diagnosed with severe asthma with presumptive pneumonia.
After teasing a new album, Chimaira have recently announced a crowdfunding campaign surrounding the release of that new album, which will be called Crown Of Phantoms. It has also been revealed that you can expect the opus to be in stores on July 30th via eOne Music. The album follows 2011's The Age Of Hell.
Finnish group HIM has premiered the first official video for a new song from Tears On Tape. The video for the album's title track and single is now available for viewing below. You can hear new material from the follow-up to Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice.
Having parted ways with Sire/Warner Music in 2011, Finnish band HIM (His Infernal Majesty) has joined Razor & Tie's North American label roster. The band has completed work on their forthcoming new studio album, Tears On Tape, which will be released on April 30th on Razor & Tie in North America/Canada and on April 29th on DoubleCross (Cooking Vinyl's specialist rock imprint) in the U.K. and Ireland.
Chimaira have released a new teaser clip for their upcoming 2013 album. Without many details revealed yet, the band has had a "currently writing" status on their official site and recently shared a "back to work" picture on their Facebook page.
Essex progressive/djent one man band Chimp Spanner is currently putting the finishing touches on the new upcoming album. The new album will be the third and follow up to 2009's release At The Dream's Edge. More album details are yet to be announced.
"Losing My Mind", the brand new lyric video from US metallers Chimaira has premiered and is now available for viewing below. The song is taken from the band's latest release The Age Of Hell, which came out last year through Long Branch Records.
US metallers Chimaira's vocalist Mark Hunter has posted online at this location four demos from the band's recording sessions of their most recent album, The Age Of Hell, released last year. Two of the songs were previously unreleased, as they didn't make the cut onto the final mix of the album. Mark Hunter only posted the songs that he wrote and arranged himself out of respect to his former band members Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries.
US metallers Chimaira have announced that bassist Jeremy Creamer and guitarist Matt Szlachta have now joined the band.
The band posted the following on their official website: "We are proud to announce the addition of Matt Szlachta and Jeremy Creamer to Chimaira. The plan was to build an undeniable string section and we have done just that. Jeremy will be pounding on the bass, and Matt shredding alongside Emil on guitar."
Vocalist Mark Hunter of US metallers Chimaira has issued the following statement on the band's website:
"I would like to start off by thanking our fans for a great tour. This last run was a blast, and truly the most fun we've had in a long while. The energy from the audience was exactly what we needed, and a welcoming return. Thank you guys!
Unfortunately, as much fun as we were having, behind the scenes we were aware of some unfortunate realities that prevented us from "living the dream" and having the time of our lives. We had another bomb to drop on the fans.
Early in July we were informed that Rob Arnold and Matt DeVries would be leaving Chimaira at the end of 2011. Of course this was a huge blow, but there were no hard feelings. We understand that life invades art, everything runs its course, and we have to take different paths. We respect their decision and wish them only the best. We made heavy metal history together and that is all that matters at the end of the day. Chimaira Christmas 12 will be their last show, and we've been preparing to make it one that you'll never forget.
