Here's the cover. I wish the damn HIM logo would be on it, Christ.

Where do you found this? I think is awesome, a mix between the old with the new, I like the cover
Got it from someone on Facebook, but she got it on ticketmaster. When you buy a Tears On Tour ticket you can buy an mp3 album and it shows the cover.

I was half asleep when I got my tickets from staying up after work from the night before. I did notice a Wings Of A Butterfly (lol) digital download option for $1.29 or some shit when I was scrolling through one of the pages, but I was trying to get everything done as fast I could so I could just go to sleep. They pre-ordered a digital version of the new album on there and got that cover then, or what?

http://www.ticketmaster.com/HIM-tickets/artist/872970 There's a link to how you can pre-order when you buy your ticket. With a pic of the album cover.

I like the logo, but the background looks like something someone would think looks cool when they're first learning how to use Photoshop.

At first didnt like it.... but now its growing on me...

It's something we've never seen before, its something we didnt expect at all.. It looks very raw, military and i think i've seen similar stones somewhere else... Metallica will definitely like this cover :)

HELSINKI/BERLIN, February 20, 2013 ? Finnish rock superstars HIM have signed a licensing deal with Universal Music Germany?s Vertigo Berlin imprint. The deal ? for all territories excluding North America, UK & Ireland, China and India ? will govern the release of the highly anticipated new album ?Tears On Tape? due out on April 29.

The follow-up to 2010?s ?Screamworks: Love In Theory And Practice?, ?Tears On Tape? is nothing less than a face-punching, heart-tugging 13-track monster of an album, and if it recalls the glories of albums like 2003?s ?Love Metal?, then it?s no accident ? rejoining forces with longtime producer Hiili Hiilesmaa, ?Tears On Tape? is a love letter scrawled in large, block capitals.

 Formed by high school friends obsessed not only with the immortal refrains of Black Sabbath but also the gloom-laden, sardonic wit of Type O Negative, HIM have become national icons in their native, rock and metal-loving Finland. Their trademark Heartagram symbol has left its indelible stamp on the globe and, with sales of more than 8 million records, HIM are a force like no other. They also have the distinction of recording the best-selling single of any Finnish artist to date with ?Join Me In Death? from 1999?s ?Razorblade Romance?, as well as being the first Finnish band to receive gold certification in the United States with 2005?s ?Dark Light?.

?We wanted the heaviness without losing the sentimentality,? says frontman Valo. ?Imagine Rambo meets The English Patient and you?re almost there. It?s got these big knucklehead riffs without forgetting the emotions behind them.?

Recorded in Helsinki and mixed at Assault And Battery Studios in London by longtime ?masterer? of ceremonies Tim Palmer (Ozzy Osbourne, U2, Pearl Jam), ?Tears On Tape is, according to Valo, the result of working with longtime friends: ?We?ve so much history that it enabled us to concentrate on the essential, which is making good songs sound as good as possible and turning them into something massive.?

I really don't wanna wait until April to hear a new song. They better hurry up and launch that fucking website and give us something. All this news is slowly coming out, but the band's official website, the one place you would expect to be able to go to and find out all the information you need, is just a clock.

Yes I fully agree they should hurry and start the promotion now. And first things first, means open that website already.
But i think we will get a preview of the new Single pretty soon. It shouldn't take too long anymore since it will be released on 04/05/13.

I mean, I wanna hear a new song as much as anybody, but at least launch the website with the tour dates and all this news on there. I would be happy if they just did that. Instead, people have to search for shit and translate shit just to know what the hell's going on. All of that stuff should already be on the official website, all organized in one central area so it's easy to find and read.

I was on the Tears on tape wiki page and it said that on the 15th of February,the website that sells the HIM fan pack overloaded.It said how the issue is only available through phone order. I've ordered my issue online,money has been taken from my account but there is STILL no email confirmation. I dont have an account with the website so it's not like i can check and im getting quite concerned.

I thought about that. If they are, they certainly aren't unlocking anything on the site.
