Into The Night
by HIM

Album: Tears On Tape (2013)
  • This was released as the first single off HIM's eighth studio album, Tears on Tape. The Finnish radio station Yle debuted the song on March 8, 2013.
  • HIM frontman Ville Valo described the song to Noisecreep as: "Roy Orbison meets David Lynch meets Iggy Pop on amphetamines." He added: "It has a punk edge that is not HIM, per se. It is super melodic and super '60s, and that is very new to me and it is a sense of achievement to me."
  • The song's music video was directed by Stefan Lindfors, who also directed the clips for HIM's "The Funeral Of Hearts" and "Tears on Tape." The clip centers on the face of singer Ville Valo, as he and his bandmates perform the song in the dark of night. We also see a collection of hooded women creating a heartagram, the group's logo, which is a combination of a heart and a pentagram.
