HIM Announce 'No Sleep Till Halloween' Tour With Papa Roach, Lostprophets, and More...

Band Also Reveals Plans for Upcoming DVD/CD

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 3, 2006 -- Finnish quintet HIM announce their fall 2006 tour in support of their highly acclaimed Sire Records release, "Dark Light." The first leg of the No Sleep Till Halloween tour kicks off October 18 in Lowell, Massachusetts, with Papa Roach, Lostprophets, Kill Hannah, and ends on Halloween in Los Angeles, California (see dates below).

On this upcoming tour, the band will reach half a million copies of 2005's "Dark Light," making HIM the first Finnish band to go gold in the U.S. The album debuted in the Top 20 on Billboard's Top 200 Chart and has so far spawned two major hits, "Wings of a Butterfly" and "Killing Loneliness." The album's success has earned the band spots on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Last Call With Carson Daly." The single, "Wings of a Butterfly," went Top 20 on Active Rock and Alternative radio, and the video was in heavy rotation on FUSE and became an Elite 8 on MTV2.

Hot on the heels of the tour will be a special DVD/CD release due out in November. The DVD/CD will follow the band through haunted castles in Scotland and feature never before seen live concert footage and rare on-camera interviews.

Pre-sale tickets for the New York shows go on sale tomorrow morning, Friday, August 4th; the rest of the shows go on sale next weekend. All tickets will be available on KROQ ( and Ticketmaster (
