Interview summary [of the new things they have said]:
– Lauri’s most personal song is Sky which is about 5 years old song; Pauli’s favorite is Stranger which is also an old song; on Tuesday at the Release Party they will play only the new songs, none of the old ones; Lauri thinks that songs sound better live, and he believes they will play a lot of the songs from the album at the gigs on the tour;  their first tour is in May more like a promo tour, then come some festivals and in the autumn a longer tour which includes also Finland tour; Lauri had a 20 sqm flat in Kallio -Helsinki when Lauri’s sister moved to Prague and gave her flat to Lauri, they had a lot of parties there and also Rakkauslaulu have been born there; they have already talked about a new upcoming album, but they do not want to plan everything, they more like want to do something because they want; working with Desmond Child was a good experience, but didn’t feel like they were a whole band because it was only Lauri and Pauli working with Desmond on the album; Eero remembers as a lot of fans come to the bus and try to speak Finnish with them; Roles comes like Eero is making videos, Aki makes the updates on Facebook and Lauri with Pauli write the songs; Aki tells about his life before The Rasmus selling t-shirts of the band at the gigs and Pauli came to him telling that Janne isn’t in the band anymore and they went to make Last Waltz then; Aki remembers seeing The Rasmus at Ruisrock and he wasn’t a fan at all of the band, at which Lauri asks surprised ‘Whaaat?’ but then Aki adds that now he likes what he does.
