Business News Deals Labels & Publishers


Cooking Vinyl’s specialist rock imprint DoubleCross has announced a deal with Finnish band HIM which will see the London label release their forthcoming album in the UK and Ireland.

Confirming the deal, DoubleCross GM Phil Hopwood told CMU: “It’s so exciting to be working with such a great band. HIM are a well respected cornerstone of the genre and the new album delivers on every level. We will make a lot of new fans with this record”.

Meanwhile the band’s frontman, Ville Valo, added: “Cooking Vinyl’s history speaks for itself and for some unfathomable reason they have clearly understood HIM’s rather perverse musical fetishes – which are as rare as hen’s teeth! DoubleCross – of the inverted kind – here we come!”
