VILLE VALO IS BACK! THE FORMER HIM FRONTMAN HAS ANNOUNCED HE IS RELEASING A NEW ALBUM

HE WILL ALSO BE HITTING THE ROAD FOR A HUGE UK, EUROPEAN & US TOUR IN EARLY 2023

In awesome news, the former HIM frontman Ville Valo confirmed on Tuesday 04/04/22 that new music will be coming from his VV project on Friday 08/04/22! The new single Loveletting will be available on all streaming platforms. The Finnish singer-songwriter also confirmed that VV’s debut studio album, Neon Noir, will land in early 2023.

As huge fans of HIM, this news has got us very excited! Myself and the team will be dusting off our eyeliner and ‘Heartagram’ belt buckles, and squeezing ourselves into our tightest skinny jeans in preparation for the new album.

In even better news, Ville has also revealed that he’ll but hitting the road with his VV project. The extensive run of dates will run across the UK, Europe & the USA in early 2023. These shows mark the first serious run of touring that Ville has embarked on since the HIM farewell shows in late 2017.

Since the release of the Gothica Fennica Vol. 1 EP in 2020, it’s relative radio silence from the Ville Valo camp. The sudden flurry of activity from Ville suggests that he is finally ready to move into the next chapter of his career, five years after HIM played their final shows. And we are certainly ready and waiting to embrace this new stage with open arms.

Demand for tickets is sure to be incredibly high for the 2023 tour, so make sure you’re ready and waiting when tickets go on sale on April 11th.
