Frontman Ville Valo tells Rock Sound that new album 'Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice' nearly broke him.

HIM frontman Ville Valo has told Rock Sound how much effort was put into the creation of the band's new album 'Screamworks: Love in Theory and Practice':

"I’ve just been working, no time in pubs honest," he said recently. "I've had no time to do anything besides this album. I’m not shitting you because I was on a personal mission to find out how much energy you can put into an album before you break. I didn’t break, but I was on the verge of it more than once. It was important to really live with the ideas rather than just going with the flow as we have in the past. The result is, I hope, something that will shake peoples’ asses."

Catch HIM on tour next year, dates are as follows:

14 - MANCHESTER O2 Academy
15 - EDINBURGH O2 Picture House
16 - NEWCASTLE O2 Academy
