Gas Lipstick, aka Mika Kristian Karppinen the drummer for multi-platinum Finnish band HIM, took the time to tell Drumhead what his new favorite drum gear is:
“That's a tough one since I've just changed everything apart from my drumsticks for our latest recording. But I have to say that I'm totally in love with my new drum kit. I just joined the Ludwig drum family and they sent me a Legacy Classic kit and it Rocks, Big Time!”
HIM’s 2013 album Tears On Tape debuted at #15 on Billboard’s Top 200 in May. The band will tour the US and parts of Canada as part of Monster Energy’s Rock Allegiance Tour, which also features Volbeat, All That Remains and Airborne. Starting August 23 in St. Paul Minnesota, the tour wraps up on Sept. 28 in NYC. Watch a tour promo spot here.
