H.I.M. To Film New Video This Month

Finnish goth metallers H.I.M. will film a new video on Thursday, June 21 and/or Saturday, June 23 in the Los Angeles area. Directing the clip will be Meiert Avis, who has previously worked with U2, AVRIL LAVIGNE, JENNIFER LOPEZ and BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, in addition to helming H.I.M.'s "Wings of a Butterfly" video. The production team put out a casting call for the clip this week and will hold auditions on Tuesday (June 19), looking for "a beautiful girl (model type) to perform in the lead role of the video."

As previously reported, a brand new H.I.M. track, entitled "Passion's Killing Floor", will be included on the soundtrack album to Michael Bay's "Transformers", due on July 3 via Warner Bros. The disc will feature a total of 12 tracks, nine of which are brand new and exclusive to the soundtrack.

"Passion's Killing Floor" comes off H.I.M.'s forthcoming album, "Venus Doom", due in North America on September 18. The band's sixth studio CD, which will arrive one day earlier internationally, was recorded at the Finnvox facility in Helsinki with producer Tim Palmer and was mixed in California. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Dead Lovers Lane" (video), "The Kiss of Dawn" and "Love in Cold Blood".
