The band have announced that Jukka “Kosmo” Kröger, previously of Herra Ylppö & Ihmiset, will fill the role of drummer, following the departure of former H.I.M. drummer Mika Kristian Karppinen, also known as Gas Lipstick. It's unclear to what extent Kröger will play in the band, but he made his live debut last night and seems to be a permanent member of the band's touring lineup.

We can likely expect to hear more from H.I.M. in the near future.
