Official HIM Street Teams: New HIM update Via Kelly Crawford (Euro-Rock Radio)
Ok clarification on a few things from Seppo:
1) Release date for XX is Oct 26 in Finland. Distribution of a physical CD worldwide is still being worked on. At this time there's not a US release date. Though iTunes will of course have it, we'll have to wait and see on physical CDs in other countries, though you can always buy it online from Finnish stores I'm sure. I'll keep you posted on US release dates, etc.
2) Sony is only releasing the XX compilation. Forthcoming new album distribution/label is still open and they are looking forward to a simultaneous release worldwide. Right now the release is tentatively scheduled for March 2013.
As I get more info from Seppo as things progress I'll let everyone know!
