as a band, we had agreed right from the start that the New Year's shows would be on if, and only if, we have new songs to present you. There have indeed emerged exciting ideas for songs - all we would need was time to work on them.
You see, originally we had agreed to give our various side projects the precedence this year. In our wildest dreams we thought we could maybe manage both tasks!
First of the side projects is Linde's band Daniel Lioneye, that also has Mige and Burton in its ranks. The band's third album, appropriately titled "Vol. III", is out now and the guys are going to be touring it in the fall. The European leg of the tour will end in mid-December...
...and, you guessed it, that doesn't leave us with the time we would need to finish some new material before New Year's Eve. There would be no point in 'rush-releasing' the new songs, playing them in an embryonic state. We strongly feel they deserve more - and so do indeed you!
Hence, no Helldone shows this year.
(Oh yeah, there are also a couple of...hmm...Mystery Projects in the works. More of them later!)
HIM would like to thank you for your continuing support - see you again in 2017! Helldone will return!!
