The album Dead Letters was a milestone for The Rasmus. They had already released four albums in Finland before the age of 21, and had reached platinum album sales and played sold out arenas in their home country. But their fifth full-length outing, Dead Letters, including the world wide smash hit In The Shadows, propelled The Rasmus to fame and stardom all over the world.

Now, a little more than 15 years after the album was released, The Rasmus will play it from start to finish in a series of concerts in Europe, late September through early November 2019.

The singer, Lauri Ylönen, explains: “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.”

Lauri continues: “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!”

Dead Letters will be re-released on CD and LP in a special Fan Edition on June 6th.
