H.I.M.'s new video for the song "Killing Loneliness" will premiere on MTV2 on Monday, May 1. It will air at 6:00 a.m., 7:00 a.m., 9:00 a.m., 11:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m., 6:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m., and 10:00 p.m. EST. It will also have its online premiere at MTV.com.
The new "Killing Loneliness" video was shot on April 2 in Los Angeles, California. H.I.M. were joined in the new clip — which was directed by Nathan Cox (QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MARILYN MANSON, KORN, LINKIN PARK, STAIND, DISTURBED) — by tattoo artist Kat Von D; she is one of the featured artists on the Discovery Channel's "Miami Ink" series and has made a name for herself as the go-to gal for H.I.M. fans who'd like to mark their bodies with the band's logo, the heartagram.
