Having burst onto the scene in the UK in the mid 00’s with their smash hit In The Shadows, Finnish dark pop rockers The Rasmus have had something of a resurgence in the UK in recent times. This is being taken to the next level over the next week or so, as they return to the UK to play their breakthrough album Dead Letters in full, and more.
The fun kicks off in Manchester tonight (7th of October) and heads to Glasgow tomorrow (8th October), Nottingham on Thursday (10th October), Bristol on Friday (11th October) and London on Saturday (12th of October). Last remaining tickets are available from Seetickets now.
The Rasmus’ frontman Lauri Ylönen discusses the significance of Dead Letters in the bands’ history below:
“Dead Letters is the most important album in the history of The Rasmus. At the time of the release in 2003 we had already existed almost ten years and were on the threshold of adulthood as a band. With self-confidence and curiosity, the fear of the future defined our new style and identity for good. We want to celebrate the 15th anniversary of this album by diving back into that dark world and playing it live from start to finish.”
“We are super excited about this. The album is very theatrical and has strong imagery. We want to bring that visual world to the live performances. Some of the songs will have their first live premier in the fall of 2019!”
