HIM FRONTMAN RETURNS WITH FIRST SOLO MATERIAL VV: GOTHICA FENNICA VOL. 1 OUT NOW
NEW SINGLE “RUN AWAY FROM THE SUN”
VV (aka VILLE VALO), the Finnish singer and songwriter most well-known for being the frontman of rock band HIM, has just released his first solo endeavour. With a career spanning nearly 30 years, the Grammy-nominated Finnish artist, performer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist led one of the most iconic bands of the 20th century.
The first single, ‘Run Away From The Sun’ is available now on all DSPs alongside two other tracks that makes up the body of work entitled ‘Gothica Fennica Vol. 1’.
He describes the three song set as
“audible proof of my musical personality disorder, the need to channel Ozzy, Madonna and Robert Smith, often simultaneously.”
HIM disbanded in early 2017 after sticking together for a quarter of a century, touring all over the world and selling in excess of 10 million copies of their eight studio albums. They remain the only Finnish artist to achieve gold record status in the United States – for the time being.
