The Rasmus Announce Dead Letters Anniversary UK Tour

That record is coming back around for a live spin.

Finnish gothic rock band The Rasmus will be playing their Dead Letters Record in its entirety on their upcoming Fall 2019 tour.

The fifth record was a success for the band, selling over two million copies.

On the announcement, the band shared:

“Dead Letters is the most important album in the history of The Rasmus,” says vocalist Lauri Ylönen. “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!”
