The band’s two singles released over the past two years, ‘Bones’ and ‘Venomos Moon’ (their collab with celloists Apocalyptica) won’t be featured on the album. As The Rasmus singer Lauri Ylönen admitted in their exclusive interview with AlteRock, he was writing the album in quite a depressed state of mind, with all the pandemic and isolation. «Writing a song about your feelings is the best medicine there is,» added the vocalist, reflecting on it in hindsight.
