The Rasmus returns!

The manager of Universal Music Finland, Jarkko Nordlund, says “We’re tremendously happy to start cooperation with such a remarkable Finnish and international band. The Rasmus is a fantastic example of how well the Finnish music works also abroad. The interest towards the new material is enormous – and the album is excellent!”

Lauri says “We certainly want to release albums more often, so it was about time we set sights on writing new songs for The Rasmus and release them”. Lauri also adds, that he was really anxious to get into making the new material.

“Making a new album has never before been as fast, easy, stress-free, and enjoyable as with this one. We found again the joy of making music, which felt pretty much the same as when the band started. I hardly can wait, that we get to planning a new setlist for the gigs. It’s also really cool, that now we can choose songs from eight albums”, tells Lauri with a smile.
