As previously reported, H.I.M. have abandoned plans to release a live album and will instead head back into the studio later this month to record some new material. A new single will surface in early 2004, to be followed by a compilation of remixed and unreleased material in connection with the upcoming German tour. A video to one of the new songs will also be shot this month.
The group's previously recorded live material, which was taped last spring when the group played seven consecutive shows at Semifinal club in their hometown of Helsinki, might end up in a DVD package that is scheduled to be released later next year.
