Venomous Moon is the second single from The Rasmus’ upcoming album, recorded during the pandemic, with the band members being stranded in Hawaii, Helsinki and Sydney and with the producer Joshua in England. It is co-produced by Martin Hansen who has worked with The Rasmus on four albums, including their breakthrough single In the Shadows. Hansen has also worked with Apocalyptica before, who contribute their trademark intense cello riffs to the track. The Rasmus’ singer Lauri Ylönen and Apocalyptica have previously joined forces on the songs Bittersweet and Life Burns.

“Venomous Moon is about isolation and being separated from the world, but I wrote it before the virus came along. I must have caught a glimpse of the future, which then added a whole new layer of melancholy to the song,” explains singer Lauri Ylönen.
From 15:30-16:00 BST today, there will be a live video premiere on YouTube, where the band will respond to questions that fans can ask in the live chat section. Right after, there will be the music video premiere at 16:00 BST.

The music video is directed by Vertti Virkajärvi and produced by No Office. Both bands perform in the video, which is inspired by the “Stranger Things” TV series and features spooky creatures stemming from the same deep forests as the Groke in the Moomin stories.
The Rasmus will embark on a World Tour in the fall of 2022.
Details about the upcoming album will be announced soon!
