New interview Rockoon April 2009

There's been again an interview in the german magazine with The Rasmus.
Here's a quick summary for you:

- They noticed that nowadays the average age of their fan base isn't 13 anymore, but more like 30 and that the people are more interested in their music now and not only their looks.
- They talk about the sound of BR and the contrast between songs like LIAWWY and Live Forever.
- Aki says his favourite song to play live is The Fight because it's very fast and a bit difficult. Lauris favourite is Live Forever cbecause the atmosphere during that song is so different to the rest of the set and very personal to him. He always takes his earplugs out while playing it and it gives him goose bumps how the audience becomes absolutely quiet and just stands there listening.
- They explained that sometimes the girls they take on stage to sing Rakkauslaulu are so nervous that they can't get a single word out, but also that one girl even wanted to do Ufolaulu and they were very surprised that she knew both songs.
- About their future plans: They'll continue touring Europe, do some festivals over the summer and in the fall they'll go to Latin America. Beside they have their 15th anniversary in November and they're planning to release something special then (i. e. the duet with Anette Olzon, a couple of B sides or a special fan package) or even do an extra tour.
- They're already thinking about the next album as well.
- They've got internet on the bus, that's how they keep in touch with their friends and families. Lauri tells that he's "talked" to his son on Skype just before the interview and that he's got his first tooth now.
- Eero recorded the video to Your Forgiveness. The story of the video sticks very close to the lyrics.

Translation: Just.Marina @ The Rasmus forum

Eero told during a concert a bit more about the music video Your forgiveness. Lauri will be again acting in the video and also between the acting part, you will see Lauri Ylönen singing on a completed part frozen sea!!! This scene is also recorded near Lauri his home.

the new thirdd single from their last album black roses will be " Your forgiveness"!
Also the music video for it is ready!! Eero (the bassist), who produced and recorded this video, is very proud on his works and told us a little bit from it already.

The plot of the video will be very sad, and a bit hard!!! Alot of painfull, cruel things and much blood he said!! but at the end it's all and well, the story is about a boy and a girl having a fight and this time the girl gets so mad and pierces the stomach of the boy!
The boy bleeds hard and it all ends at the hospital, after all the girl needs to ask the forgiveness of the boys, and it and good.

Message from the band concerning the cancellation of the Mexico show

We are very sorry we had to cancel the show in Mexico City, at the Auditorium Nacionales, after the outbreak of swine influenza. There was a kind of panic spread in the city over the last days and our thoughts now go to all people suffering from the effects of this dangerous influenza.
It was also sad on our part, as all preparations had been made to make a great show and we had been waiting for that date for a long time, since we have such an enormous support from the fans in Mexico City.
We are now in Guadalajara and everyone in The Rasmus is well, the shows are going well and we are enjoying the Mexican hospitality.
We also hope that we can make another show in Mexico City later..

Lauri Ylönen: I'm afraid of drugs

"I'm a very rebellious person", Lauri Johannes Ylönen (30) introduces himself. The lead singer and composer of The Rasmus, the one with the anarchic hair (TN: Whatever that figure! Anyway...) and with a rather dark mood. Lauri takes the call from "Sí!" from his native Finland. Up next, the singer gives an idea about his character. Two minutes of talking is enough for one to realise he isn't what you expect from a cliché rockstar with top sales. Instead, he tries to run away from said cliché, that of the eccentric, stubborn and self destructive star. On the contrary, he's rather shy, humble and ordinary. So sensible... While he tries to predict the future of his band, tries to go against the rebel rock figure.

*In "Shame" and "Myself" you talk about drugs, what's your relationship with them?

L: We've tried some, but I'm afraid of them. I'm a very sensible person, I even feel alcohol confuses me too much. I live on fast speed, no matter what I'm doing, so I don't need an extra dose of anything. That would be a mistake.

*You enjoyed rapping before... Is The Rasmus ever going to change their music style?
L: I think we change, and should change all the time. That's the band's style, actually. At the beginning we used to combine the different sounds we liked, like the Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Nirvana.

*What can we expect from your show next Wednesday?
Lauri talks about how he and his band mates prepare the set list for a show, and pay attention, that's good news:

L: Most of the time we do it based on what our fans ask through My Space. Either way, we have improvised a bit lately and we ask the audience what they would like to hear during the shows, or we check the signs the fans bring with them to the gigs.

He seems to go all shy when talking about Desmond Child, their producer for their album "Black Roses" out last year.

L: He sent me an e-mail saying "I'd like to work with you", and that's funny, because I feel so little next to him... We're just some youngsters from Finland.

New MySpace blog from Aki: Day off in Vladivostok.

Hello friends! One of my dreams came true, I'm in Vladivostok. All the day off, if we don't count the press conference and some interviews we did...why I'm calling it a day off then...anyways...Really nice day, so many things to do and see, Beautiful orthodox churches, I visited the Chinese markets, but maybe the coolest thing was the old submarine. We got inside and saw how people have been sleeping there etc. I even went into the tube/pipe (or how do you call it) which is for the torpedo's, but don't tell anybody, i wasn't allowed to do that.
Lauri and Eero and our lovely light engineer Mikko went to scuba dive, they saw interesting underwater life of Vladivostok. Eero got a little sunburned, so if you wonder who is the crab guy on the bass, it's him, believe or not.
Everyone feels very relaxed and ready for the show tomorrow, it's going to be outdoors so let's hope it's not raining! And if it's raining we'll have great fun anyway, right?

Ok, I think I'll put my electric blue Speedos on and go to swim.
Pus och Kram,
Aki "Speedo" Hakala

Khabarovsk-Vladivostok flight 6:30AM
This flight is maybe the most awful in my life, the turbulence was so bad, our bags flew so high that they hit the ceiling, Keri Kellys (Alice Coopers guitarist) red wine too and then it was all over me. I was so scared, now I'm bit afraid of the landing...will there be turbulence as heart is still beating like hell and i'm sweating like a pig, as we say in Finland. Ok, let's think about nice things now, I need to get rid of this feeling. We played ultimate rock show in Khabarovsk, had so much fun on the stage, and yes we played 60 min set, jahuuuuuuuu!!! I Want to thank all the people who came to check us out! And made our first visit to Khabarovsk very special, hope to come back soon!
Also we saw some of the city. I went to the river with Lauri and Eero, saw some nice churches, drove dodgem cars, had really nice day! I'm so much looking forward to spend couple of days in Vladivostok, some of our friends from another finnish band (Amorphis) have been there and they said it's beautiful. I have my camera with me so i hope to find something interesting to shoot. Ou shit, time for the landing, everybody seem to be a bit scared, so let's pray for the best and I'll let you know how it was...

Vladivostok-Khabarovsk flight 7:02AM
Our pilot wasn't able to land, we need to fly back to Khabarovsk! Shit! I'll try to sleep...

Khabarovsk-Vladivostok flight 11:50AM
Ok, second try...the sky looks more clear now. Hope we have more luck this time! So far so good...

Khabarovsk, at the hotel 6:00PM
Ah, slept so well, what a tiring day. The second try of landing was successful, thank god. Now it's time to have a "morning" coffee and a little walk outside before the dinner. Tomorrow is a day off too, so if you're from Vladivostok please let me know what should we see in here, thanks. And see you at Avantgard Stadium!!!
Flying is nice, flying is nice, flying is nice.............NOT!

Novosibirsk gig cancelled!

In Novosibirsk, the stadium “Spartak”, where the rock stars were supposed to have gig the main stage collapsed. As a result the organizers were forced to cancel the concert. The incident most likely happened because of the overweight of light and musical instruments. On the stage was supposed to perform Alice Cooper, Scorpions, The Rasmus and Kingdom Come in their international festival “Monsters of Rock”. For the show have been sold more than 10.000 thousand tickets. To the fans of the rock music the money spent on the tickets will be returned.

Source: “Pravda.Ru” and Lauri Ylönen worldpress


Article with Lauri Ylönen from The Rasmus: "The Scorpions asked us for an autograph!"

Lauri, do you find yourselves monsters?

- We are not monsters, but together with other bands we are becoming a real four-headed beast but very friendly, unpredictable, heavy by the sound, but soft at heart.

They say that real rock-n-roll stars must be crazy? What about you?

- Sometimes I like to commit reckless acts. For example, I can sit in my boat in the middle of the night and sail away from the gulf toward the horizon to any island. Everybody’s sleeping and the sun is shining. In Finland we have the same white nights as in St. Petersburg. This is really beautiful I can sail all night long, not even thinking about time. However this is not that much «how rockers do» - to sail in a boat alone but I can suggest this for all the musicians. It is a great calm for you disordered nerves.

And our bass guitarist Eero Heinonen takes his guitar in the weekend and goes on trains - to «bring joy for people». However he doesn’t refuse from money too. And if he brings home a little «catch», then he receives a scolding from his wife (laughs).

This is not your first time in St. Petersburg. Do you remember the first performances in here?

- Yes, it was in 1997, then we were not that popular and no one knew us. We arrived by an exchange program: Russian bands went to Finland, and we are in St. Petersburg. It was our first performance abroad. I was shocked by your architecture. I have a secret hobby - I collect albums with photos of buildings of cities all over the world. I’ve already bought several albums in St. Petersburg. I was in Hermitage for three times ... and I’ll go once more.

Lauri, have you already acted together with Alice Cooper or Scorpions? Don’t you afraid? They are all in all «senior fellows» ...

- With «Scorpions» we went on stage in Germany. It was very funny - they came to us during the rehearsal and said: «Guys are you The Rasmus? Give us your autograph, our grandchildren asked» I’m not acquainted with Alice Cooper, but I’m his fan for a very long time. I recently read his biography, which he wrote himself. So it is the greatest happiness for me that we will perform together but not only perform and also fly on concerts around Russia in the same private plane.

Don’t you afraid that there will not be a full house? It is crisis in the world and tickets for «Monsters of Rock» are not that cheap ...

- I’ve read somewhere that in spite of any crisis people will always listen to live music and buy flowers. For us musicians as well as for sellers of flowers it sounds very life-asserting. People will still come on a good concert. However the sales of CD’s are dramatically falling and will be falling more and more.

If you perform on «Eurovision», as your compatriots «Lordi», your sales and ratings will instantly grow.

- No, it is not our competition. There are many bands who just wanted to promote themselves using the «Eurovision». We went the other way. At our first gig in Russia were 15 people the next time it was 50 already then a hundred and so on. I believe that talks between people are the «normal» way to success, and it is much more durable than the «Eurovision».

Myspace Blog from The Rasmus: Cancellation / Novosibirsk

New mypace blog of The Rasmus: On the plane Rostov-Yekaterinburg.

On the plane Rostov-Ekaterinburg. 02:23AM.
We spent couple of nice days in Rostov, did the riverboat trip, went to the market place, enjoyed the nice (very hot) weather, met some fans and friends, and yes also played a gig...It was the second The R show in Rostov, in a sport hall, where people had seats, and if one stand up the security guys asked people to sit down, that was rock'n roll, hehehehe!!! First i felt that our music is never going to work for these people, but after couple of songs i only saw smiling people, I think they enjoyed what they heard. And of course it was good to see some The R fans with finnish flags in the crowd, thanks for the great support!!! All the Scorpions guys came to check us out as well, that was cool.
After the gig we went to see The Scorpions, we had seats on the 4th row, so pretty good places...good old songs like Rock you like a hurricane, Still loving you etc. A real 80's rock show. These guys have been around for ages and they still seemed to like what they're doing! Respect!
Ok, maybe I will try to sleep a little, before we land.

New Myspace blog from Aki: St. Petersburg

hi guys,
I'm enjoying my breakfast coffee and relaxing at the hotel lobby bar in St. Petersburg. The gig yesterday was great, only thing that sucked was that we were able to play only 30 min, but I think we played very well and it was great to see so many The R fans in the audience! From now on we'll play 60 min set, cause now the technical things are (hopefully) solved and we hope that A. Coopers crew will be bit faster with their sound check...We'll see...
After the gig I was watching Alice Cooper. Never saw him on the stage before, THAT was extremely entertaining!
Ok, I think I need to leave now, the hotel restaurant is on fire, and the firemen are asking me to go out, the lobby is full of smoke, whatta????
So, time to head to Rostov...

Myspace blog from Lauri About his skating accident

My skateboard accident.....
I was trying to land a variable flip but instead I landed on my back and my shoulder got badly dislocated. For three hours I was wandering around Helsinki hospitals to fix it. Luckily my old friend Esa is a fast driver and we had good music and Salmiakki in the car. I will be able to do the forthcoming concerts in Russia, though I’m thinking of leaving my skateboard home for my son.

The Rasmus MySpace blog: The Rasmus goes to Russia – with Alice Cooper and Scorpions! and new tour date

The Rasmus will embark on an eight date stadium tour in Russia together with Alice Cooper, Scorpions (co-headline) and Kindom Come. The tour is called MONSTERS OF ROCK and will the bands will play arenas in front of 20.000 - 30.000 people.
The three bands will travel together in a private jet plane, followed by a second old military aircraft carrying the equipment. This is The Rasmus’ fifth tour in Russia, where they have a big following of fans in many cities. "We are very excited about this tour", says The Rasmus’ singer Lauri Ylönen. "We grew up listening to Alice Cooper and Scorpoins, so going on the road with them is a great honor. They have also worked with the legendary Desmond Child, like us, that’s a pretty funny coincidence. The Rasmus music is highly influenced by the 80’s music so we’ll fit in perfectly. I’ve been dreaming of going all the way to Vladivostok one day!"

More news about duet and sneak peek at the new video from The Rasmus!

Axel Söderlund, A-lite, from Luleå, worked as DoP (director of photography) during the making of the music video. Here he gives Film Arc the inside scoop from the set. The name of the single is still confidential.

Behind the production are the companies: Village Road Film (Umeå) and Helsinki Pump.

Director is Owe Lingvall and Production Coordinator is Mirka Rantanen. The video was shot with a RED-camera. This is the second collaboration between Director Owe Lingvall and the Finnish super group The Rasmus. Owe directed the video for the single ‘Justify’ in 2008.

the set, they told me that ‘Justify’ was their all time favorite amongst their own videos, says Axel.

The Rasmus new video was shot in Helsinki, during one very long day, with a Finnish crew except for Director and DoP. The whole music video was shot against green screen which will be replaced with an empty skyscraper filled city.

- At this stage we cannot give away much details concerning content. But the basic idea is that the artists move through this empty city, changing their surroundings in different ways. But we did a lot of walking. And to achieve this in a studio without having to light enormous areas we bought a treadmill which was modified and painted completely green, it worked like a charm, except for a few stumbles here and there. So if anyone is in need of a green treadmill, you can rent it from Village Road, says a smiling Axel.

The postproduction will be handled in Umeå during the summer and the release will be in August.

Dynasty Recordings signed Helsinki based dark-pop band Iconcrash. In the beginning there was one man. Jaani Peuhu, already a seasoned rock music professional at a pretty young age, wanted to do exactly what he wanted, without having to plead anybody else except himself. So he wrote a number of songs that sounded more like the music he was hearing in his head than the sound of any of his prior bands. These songs became Nude, the first Iconcrash album, that was released in spring 2005. Jaani had written, produced and performed much of the record himself. Although there were also several guest musicians involved, it was basically his solo album. Iconcrash are now finished with their second album called Enochian Devices after 14 month sessions at Dynasty Recording studios and Sonic Pump Studios. The first single Strange, Strange Dark Star with the video directed by Owe Linwall (The Rasmus, Amorphis, Nordman, Sturm Und Drang etc) is in your reach now and the album release date will be announced later on. You can check out the video here: You Tube

Interview with Lauri and Aki in Hungary
Tölgyi Kriszta made an interview at the Campus festival with the singer Lauri Ylönen and drummer Aki Hakala.


In their childhood everyone is dreaming about growing up and being a rock star. You made it. You’ve imagined it like this?

AKI: When I was small my biggest dream was to once become a hero firefighter. But as you can see I’m pretty small. Physically i wasn’t good for it, so they didn’t accepted me. My second dream was to play drums, and luckily this went good.

LAURI: What concerns me, i wanted to become a rock star when i was younger, but not a singer. I didn’t fancied at all my voice, so i haven’t even thought about it. I still remember how it was when first i had to listen to myself from cassette. It was weird and i didn’t liked it at all. But i think most people are in the same situation. It’s like you wouldn’t listen to your own voice, but someone else’s. My sister was who told me to sing. She liked my singing and said it’s worth making it better. I’m grateful to her for this.

And when came the moment when even you yourself believed that your voice is good?

LAURI: Well, … I’m still waiting for that. (laugh)

Since the secondary school you play together, and the time spent together is longer than some of the marriages today. Other bands would maybe be interested, how you do it…

AKI: We are not just simply friends, but more like brothers. If someone for example would need some peace, then we let him to go to a peaceful place and have some rest. There is a strong relation between us, we respect each other. And i think this makes the job done.
LAURI: Yes, that’s what i wanted to say.
You have defined The Rasmus’ style as death pop, meaning pop music which is dead. For those who are not real fans of you, would you explain what does this exactly means?
LAURI: This is just a funny word we have made up. It seems that all the bands need a category where they would fit in. We were asked all the time to sum up in 2 words what kind of music we play. But this was almost impossible to do, because we have many influences on us. Most of them from the end of the ’80s and the beginning of ’90s since we grew up listening to them, and founded our first band then. Most of the rock bands from then are live legends even today. But sure we had influences of more modern music too like Muse or even hip-hop artists. So, everything of these is in The Rasmus’ songs, but we don’t have strict rules what we can do and what not. We’ve tried a lot of things of those we like. And we would like to do this in the future too. We are the bosses. We decide and hope, that the fans would also like the new things.
Would like tell me some stuff about your cooperation with Desmond Child producer? If i know right you have made an exciting thing based on a book for movie-makers.
LAURI: Yes, this is true. Desmond Child is a living legend. He have worked together with celebrities like Aerosmith, Alice Cooper and Bon Jovi and a lot more, who i worship since i was a kid. We had the chance to partially make with him Black Roses. I lived with him for 2-3 months in the USA, in Nashville, and we started a really ambitious plan. Really we used a book which was made for directors of movies. The authors explained based on Star Wars and E.T. how a really good movie should be built. We took this as a base for our album too. We made up a basic story and wrote all of the songs like they would fit together. Like each of them would be part of the same story. It happened that we argued for hours long on some lyrics, to be perfect. Most of the idea of this working plan was Desmond Child’s. I’m grateful, that i could work with him and i feel that since then i can write more exciting music.
In Debrecen, at the Campus festival there were a lot of fans waiting for you hours long before the gig, in front of the hotel and around the stage. Isn’t this tiring sometimes? (she means that fans go to the hotel/airport/backstage and stuff to meet them)
LAURI: No, exactly the opposite. It’s an amazing feeling that already at the airport we meet people who particularly come to see us even if only for a moment. Those most desperate even wait 10-12 hours for us. This makes me think that once it will the time come when they won’t be curious of us.
Is this a real fear? Are you really afraid of this?

LAURI: Yes, this is together with all the stuff. Who knows what will be in 10-15 years. You know, we have just ended a 8-station tour with Alice Cooper and Scorpions. These guys are not today’s chicks. They are above 60, so they are twice as old as we are, but they still rock. It’s unbelievable to see them and i just hope that we will be able to do the same thing they achieved.

Iltalheti Article on the duet with Lauri Ylönen (The Rasmus) and Anette

The Article is basically a bit more about the duet between our boys and Anette Olzon
for the songs 'October in April'...

This is a bit the translation of it:

- The duet will be on the new autumn compilation release that Aki has previously mentioned.
- Lauri says he got on really well with Anette when there were filming the music video
- Anette pretty much says: The Rasmus is a great band and this duet song is absolutely brilliant... and she hopes someday she'll be able to perform the song live with the band.

New myspace blog: The Rasmus goes back to school...

The Rasmus celebrates their 15th anniversary by playing a gig in the gym hall of Suutarila school in Helsinki. The venue is the same where the band first started their career in 1994 in the school’s Christmas Party.....

Because of the limited capacity of the venue, the event is for invited guests only. The audience consists of a group of old class mates of The Rasmus members, some of the present pupils of Suutarila school and the winners of a special contest run by Irc-Galleria. Irc-Galleria will also broadcast the whole concert as a live stream world wide. Viewing the stream does not require registration to the service.....

IRC-Galleria is one of the largest social networking websites in Finland with over 800 000 weekly users. ....

The event is implemented together with Sulake (the administrative corporation of IRC-Galleria) and Mikkeli University Of Applied Sciences. The multi-camera production is provided by Mikpolis Oy.

The Rasmus surprise gig at school! (

The Rasmus is celebrating its 15-year career anniversary concerts, which will be held Suutarila secondary school gymnastics hall on Monday 23 November. Rasmus-history's first show was consulted in 1994 in that same school's Christmas party.

.."I invented it. Now comes the 15 years we ekasta gig there, gymnastics room sweat sock smell ", says Lauri Ylönen rhythm.

"I think it is a good idea to go back there and play the gig to go to this moment for students and invited guests. It would also be nice to ask the site types that were then in the first keikallakin participate," Lauri continues.

During all the school - especially guys - just did not think kindly of how the band was popular with girls. Yet, it was important to their place of evidence...

.."It was a sense the first time that each of us a more assertive half got up. It was perhaps surprising to many people who knew me just read in the presentation with excitement. "

"It admits that we were not their own songs in our Kummelin He-man song-shade. It pulled for some reason, a lot better than our own Myself song. We also played Nirvana's Polly gig ... it was the kind of alphabet soup, " Ylönen laughs and wonders out loud, wondering if Kummeli-song could pull this time.

"Yes, that is Diamond, but should probably ask what the other band of this idea say. Overall, the gymnastics hall returning to the same positive feeling. We do not go there with the explosives, but just the same style as the case sometimes. "

Ii>I began looking online and thought of what we could do. In the end it became clear that it should be online. I was excited for this and though someone my age would be curious to know what the teachers may think. (very rough translation here)....

Gig live on the Internet is seen as

Lauri, I regret that the first ever gig clothes have been somewhere along the way in 15 years. In a way, they would have been funny BUSK.

.."Hard to remember what was just then on, but the grunge phase was temmannut us all with him. Was also a colorful hair and a shirt box. Annoying when I have thrown the legendary shirts off sometimes. Now it is time to put on the end of mageeta consumed in the shirt box, ".. Lauri carved eagerly waiting for the future.

Others can share the gig atmosphere of IRC-Galleria The Rasmus-themed communities in which gig is visible in real time. Stuff with other fans can chat.

The Rasmus singer, Lauri Ylönen interview by Rytmi

Next steps:

“We don’t have a certain timetable for our plans, it’s going under own weights. In a way it’s fascinating that the last record was a maxima scale and brought to the American big world and a lot of money. Now, if we would make the disc it would be a bit the other end.” says Lauri Ylönen.
“Maybe the album had some high expectations, as it would have cost a million, and then it should have been sold in a certain extent too” he continued.

Making their previous album was still a lesson to learn.

“The previous album had a good record and the time we had on it was necessary to do so. With Desmond working, one can learn a lot but i can not say that we took the most out of it.” Ylönen sums up.

Lauri and Pauli Rantasalmi are both working in a parallel way: Lauri in Finland and Pauli in Singapore, making demos during the summer.

“We’ve been all on our own and working on new stuff. I’m going to Singapore to Pauli and certainly make some sound-recordings during the autumn.” Lauri points out.
The more spice it gives to the situation that The Rasmus is not currently signed with any recording company.
“In a way i can think even that way that now we start from the beginning. The Playground contract expired and we don’t know anything about the future. It might happen that we’ll continue being signed there, or just somewhere else.”
“This is a nice feeling, that seemingly a particular task is completed and we can now again start doing things from a scratch.
The things have changed even with the big record companies and now even the smallest can succeed.
Indeed we also have a company, so nothing is excluded. Should take a look at it.” Lauri thinks peacefully.

Lauri and aki had a interview at voice: This is The Rasmus future

The Rasmus Lauri singer and drummer Aki told that in future, they are not necessarily intended to be used at all outside the studios.

The band is preparing for the November release of the disc collection taking place, but over the years has already had time to recording new songs with owned Dynasty Studios in Helsinki.
Lauri says that the band's future, it seems that the next record might be based on these studio recordings, because they have been forced to sad the fact that the demo versions of the energy is lost through studio working.

Now the band has a good recording equipment so that they can record training by versions of the songs, which may form the band's next album.

Lauri showing also the possibility to opt out of all the albums release, the continuous fall in sales volumes. He wonders whether the publication of The Rasmus always one song at a time, as individual albums songs work better internet world.
See Lauri and Aki's thoughts below.

Article with Lauri Ylönen at Orkus

Fist we wanne say this: thanks to Jessica here comes an article from Orkus no.12/01 December 2009/ January 2010.

„First, I called Tuomas Holopainen as if he was the father and me the guy who wants to ask for his daughter’s hand."

Then they say something about In The Shadows etc., there’s nothing that we don’t already know.

Lauri Ylönen:
Hi, right now I’m in Singapore at the airport and have to kill two hours until my flight to Helsinki will arrive.
What did you do in Singapore?
LY: I visited our guitarist to work at new songs for the new album. He’s living there for over a year and has a family by now. It was a wonderful creative time, first of all because we did very much with his native friends and have learnt very much about the culture. But now I really look forward to Finland – these trips open my mind for the beauty of my home country.
Is it actually something special for you to visit foreign countries? After all, you have already visited over 60 countries with The Rasmus.
LY: Again and again it’s an adventure. Not least because I absolutely dislike flying! (laughs) No, I really don’t like these "iron birds". Apart from that I love to travel, especially when I can visit places again of which I know that I liked them. For example, I always look forward to being in Milan. I already know then where I’ll drink a coffee.
Which country or which city appealed you the most? Was it something such exotic as India?
LY: India absolutely left its mark, that’s clear. However, I can’t say that I felt really comfortable there. For any reason, I couldn’t relax. I think that was because of the wide difference we encountered. We lived in an unbelievably luxurious seven-star hotel, but when we left it, there was an unimaginable poverty. Indeed, our concert in India was very emotional but I prefer the more calm places. I found Iceland, e. g., breathtaking beautiful.
You became 30 years old this year. In which way did this age change your point of view concerning The Rasmus?
LY: Of course very much, I’m not the same person anymore which I was when I was 20. I lived absolutely different when The Rasmus started off internationally, and although I dislike this word, I definitely became more mature, which is for sure also related to the fact that I have a son by now. But in many things I’m still a child, otherwise I wouldn’t play in a rock band. You just have to look at me now: I’m wearing an expensive suit which could be of a business man, but I have this really weird haircut. (laughs)
The international success mentioned earlier began 2003 with In The Shadows on a grand scale. Many bands develop something like a love-hate relationship to their most successful track. Is it the same with you?
LY: Well, I never hated this track. Of course sometimes it’s getting on my nerves that people are imitating me with the beginning of the song on the street but you have to live with it. The way I see it is like that: without this song I wouldn’t be in Singapore now, without this song many things wouldn’t have happened.
It’s only right that this track is the first on your Best Of 2001 – 2009. Which thoughts crossed your mind when you did this look back at your music?
LY: I instinctively had to think about how many video clips we made in all these years. I remembered all the exhausting and funny shots which we did in Cuba, in the USA, Sweden or Finland. These were really exhausting years! So many unbelievable things happened that we couldn’t do everything some offered us. E. g. at that time, we couldn’t fly to New Zealand although In The Shadows was also there number one in the charts. On the one hand it’s a pity but on the other hand we can still catch it up.
With October & April there’s also a new song – a wintry melancholic duet with the Nightwish vocalist Anette Olzon. Why did you choose her?
LY: At any rate I wanted to have a singer of a Finnish band and as right now, Nightwish is Finland’s biggest band, the choice was easy. First, I called Tuomas Holopainen as if he was the father and me the guy who wants to ask for his daughter’s hand. (laughs)
There haven’t been other candidates?
LY: Well, actually yes. You have to know that the song already existed a few years ago and that time I wanted to have Tarja Turunen for that duet. But at that time her problems with Nightwish possibly began, so she turned me down. I was rather disappointed, so the song was put off for quite a while. It’s really weird that it now worked out with the next Nightwish singer but also quite funny.
Perhaps Tarja would have been a bit too much for this song.
LY: By now I think the same and am very happy about the fact that I worked with Anette. (sings just like a proof some shrill Nightwish beats) No, Tarja’s voice would definitely have been too bombastic for this song (laughs).
Was it difficult to get into a romantic atmosphere which is required for this sad love song?
LY: Absolutely no problem! This song has an unbelievable beautiful atmosphere into which you can delve immediately. The story of October who is eternally in love with April but cannot have her is a popular lullaby for children in Finland. We absolutely wanted to keep this magical, dreamy character and because of that we set value on this atmosphere lost in reverie. Even if we finally got a real "murder ballad".

Two new articels with lauri Ylönen

Thanks to Oana and Reka, we can enjoy two new articles to read
from are favorite singer Lauri Ylönen.

Article 1:

Lauri Ylönen promises to behave this time at Linna Celebrations

The Rasmus Lauri Ylönen made a picture of himself with his phone’s camera for Aamulehti.
The Rasmus celebrates their 15th anniversary with releasing a collection album and with a gig in the sports hall of the Suutarila High School.
Where can we find the most fanatic The Rasmus fans?
-Maybe in Britain. There are a couple of girl fans who have been at 62 gigs. They are a bit older, oh well aged around 30 who wanted also to come to the celebration gig.
What is the strangest thing ever you have done during your career?
-In Taiwan i was live on the TV drinking some snake poison drink.
During the summer you’ve been touring with Alice Cooper, Scorpions and Kingdom Come in Russia. What kind of experience it was?
-It was great to be around our childhood heroes. Everyone was nice and really open. The 30-years of age difference wasn’t disturbing at all. Sometimes it was weird to see the same aged guys put the same make-up on their face…it was both sad and cool in the same time.
Who is taking care of your son if the mother PMMP’s Paula vesala and you are at a gig too?
-There haven’t been too much of those situation recently, because most of us band members have young children and been at kind of a paternity leave.
So you will be going to the Linna Celebrations?
-While i have been on my Asian trip i have got some couple of dresses that would do fine for the Linna Celebrations. This time i will go to the party with a partner. Last time i took a friend with me, Siiri Nordin. I thought you don’t have to bring at the party your lady. But apparently i have been forgiven. And i promise that this time i will behave.
The Rasmus will have their 15-year anniversary concert on the 23.11 in the Gym Hall of the Suutarila High School. Their Best of 2001-2009 compilation album appears on the 23.11.
Read more questions and Lauri Ylönen’s answers in Wednesday’s Aamulehti.

Article 2:

Lauri: I quit drinking

The Rasmus’ leadsinger reads stories for his son through Skype
Last year The Rasmus members spent their first summer in fifteen years without gigs. Lauri Ylönen could even get to enjoy his time with his one and half year old Julius son and at his girlfriend’s PMMP’s Paula Vesala’s gigs.
- When Paula is doing gigs i often take care of him.I can’t think of any reason why i wouldn’t be with my son in park making sand cake, Ylönen says enjoying the parenthood.
Fatherhood is in combination with touring, although being away from family for year long is not the most attractive thing. The Rasmus have been touring in Europe at the beginning of the year for several months.
-At those points i’ve been using the technology: i read fairy tales to my son through Skype. It might sound cold. I’m confident in the future about a free education, such as mine was.
Ylönen is actively writing new material for their future releases. The singer was recently in Singapore where Pauli Rantasalmi lives to put the pieces together.
-With this journey i got a perspective of how a good place Finland is. In Singapore there is a complete lack of freedom of speech, which is quite a sick thing.
Ylönen would like to also publish new material more often, since modern technology allows you to make good quality songs in in your own bedroom.
-It would be really a cool thing if the songs could be “printed” with a single press of Enter, and so the listeners can hear the first version. When you work on a disk for 3 years, it’s no longer needing to be improvised. I see the market is changing essentially, so publication of an album is not already a major event.
The Rasmus will celebrate their 15th anniversary with a compilation album and with a performance in their junior high school, where the band also had their first gig.
Ylönen sees that the band got more listeners when the song In The Shadows had success in foreign countries too.
- The following years then were some tough times. We had a booming energy, but were worn out after the gigs. I was really so disordered at that time.
- It was kind of a “foggy” time when after the gigs we had to consume a lot of alcohol. Now i quit drinking for six months already, Ylönen says.
The Rasmus was about to split before their world fame came.Today, it would be an impossible thing.
-I feel that friendship kept us together. This become a great part of the life, without which life would seem really boring. I would be sad to leave for a solo career.
-It would make more sense to say to “retire” for a long time from doing gigs, than to make a lot of people’s eyes full of tears, and then come back after years from now. If it would be for us to break up, we would surely only retire for a long break.
The Rasmus’ Best of 2001-2009 appears Wednesday 25.11. The band will have a gig in Suutarila High School Monday 23.11

THANK YOU...for all the questions. We received far more than 100 mails and it was a hard decision to pick just a few out of about 250 questions. But we finally made it and we think that the interview is quite interesting and funny.
We try to type it up as fast as possible - maybe you get it on sunday already! But if we don't manage it till then, please don't be mad at us. We talked for more than 30 minutes...which means a lot of words.

Lauri Ylönen ( The rasmus singer) and Paula welcome Santa Clause

The Rasmus’ Lauri Ylönen spend the Christmas with his family and the Santa claus will visit them, tells Voice.

Interview translation:

Ylönen and his partner, PMMP’s Paula Vesala have 1,5 year-old son Julius.

-In Christmas Eve the Santa comes, of course.
-Daddy can visit in the neighbour when the Santa comes, I don’t know yet., Ylönen planned.

Ylönen told in Radio Nova’s program that he is Christmas person. It is an important party, that he had always spent in peace.

- It’s spoken that in Finland we drink, burn sauna and fight, but in our family I haven’t seen that.
They asked from Ylönen, does he ever want to get involved his child’s mother’s music.

- They have their own style, and we have our own. Styles have developed with time. Outward shouldn’t appear with his own suggestion, then he can damage it.
He critisized record labels style to get involved aggressively to band’s doings.

- Shouldn’t in that time let the band be free and artistic? People want to feel that they are important, but we don’t do that, Ylönen says.

Lauri signed a petition for "music copyright law" change

There is an article on the site of IltaLehti, where it says that Lauri signed a petition against the copyright law changes in the music industry among 40 other famous names of the Finnish music business like Paula Vesala, Mira Luoti, Jukka Karjalainen, Maija Vilkkumaa, Jonna Tervomaa and Ismo Alanko.

The law basically tells about the fact that anyone can publish live gigs of a certain band without their permission, can edit and use the material ignoring the artists’ wishes.
