Finland’s Eurovision 2022 representative The Rasmus is set to release a biography about their 30-year-long career in August 2022.
The Rasmus is one of the most internationally successful Finnish bands. The band has released eight studio albums and sold over four million records worldwide. In 2003, they score their first international hit with the song “In The Shadows”. The song currently has over 122 million streams on Spotify and over 170 million views on YouTube between the two music videos.
This year the group took part in Uuden Musiikin Kilpailu, Finland’s national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. They won the contest with “Jezebel” after being the favourite of the international jury and the Finnish public.
A detailed reviewing of my own life and the band’s career saved me from the grip of depression. It was like therapy for me. We’ve had an incredibly cool life and I’m proud to tell of it all.The lead singer Lauri Ylönen
The book is written by Ari Väntänen and is set to be released in August of 2022. Before that, The Rasmus will represent Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. They will also perform at Eurovision in Concert on April 9th.
