HIM lead vocalist Ville Valo comments: "We’re infernally glad to be dressed sharply enough for our dearest  comrades in the U.S.(for once), R&T A-Go-Go!!!" And Razor & Tie A&R Executive Mike Gitter adds: "Few artists are able to tap into rock at its most emotional and forlorn and make it sound so damn uplifting and powerful. That’s Ville Valo and HIM’s stock-in-trade. They take the rawest of emotions and channel them into unforgettable anthems-invoking the spirit of great rock n roll in the process."
Tears On Tape will be bands eight official studio album and was recorded in their home country with long-time producer Hiili Hiilesmaa and once again mixed by long time-band associate,Tim Palmer (U2, Ozzy Osbourne, Pearl Jam, Robert Plant).
