- Guys, I want to tell you (I did sent it to your mail, but you didn’t say anything to it, so I hope you read this). At the 30th may of 2010, my mom died of cancer. At her cremation I was able to chose a song, the song I chose was ‘Still Standing’. I want to thank you for all your music, since 2003 I’ve been loving you as my number 1 band, and still doing that, after all those years. (I was 9 back than, now I’m almost 19).

Eero: lauri sanoi että idea tai inspis tähän biisiin tuli sofia coppolan Somewhere-leffasta. (Moi, this new album of yours is very good, the songs sink into me. By the way, what’s this song “Somewhere” about and where did you get the idea for it? Good song, I like it really a lot… Greetings.
Eero: Lauri said that the idea or inspiration for this song came from Sofia Coppola’s movie “Somewhere” – translation by Sharazan)

Eero: we are planning to make a live dvd limited edition that includes some songs from this may tour plus some extra material from berlin zoo and other interesting places with us hosting it.
- is your song Somewhere (my new favourite) about being in the band and being on tour? Or what’s it about?Thanks for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer our questions :D xXx
Eero: i feel it is about the feeling that you need to change something in your life. that you’ve had too much of something and want to try something new.
- What if you shoot a video for the song from the old albums?)
Eero: it would be lovely, but then we wouldnt have time left for anything else..
