HIM: 'Like St. Valentine' Video Released

"Like St. Valentine", the new video from Finnish "love metallers" HIM, can be viewed below. The song comes off the band's seventh studio album, "Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice", which will be released by Sire Records on February 9.

Recorded at The Lair in Los Angeles, "Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice" was produced by Matt Squire (TAKING BACK SUNDAY, THE USED, SAOSIN) and mixed by Neal Avron (LINKIN PARK, WEEZER, FALL OUT BOY).

"Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice" is HIM's follow-up to 2007's "Venus Doom", which debuted at No. 12 in the U.S. and was nominated for a Grammy Award for "Best Boxed/Special Limited Edition Packaging".
