Dark Matters is the ninth album by the Finnish rock band The Rasmus, which was released in Finland on 8 October 2017.[1] It is their first album after five years of inactivity, as a continuation of their previous album The Rasmus (2012).

The album is characterized by the musical genres that predominate in the songs, between electropop and electronic rock, although they preserve their classic style of alternative rock.

Background[edit]

The band announced for the first time that the album would be released on September 22, 2017, before the release date was changed to October 6, 2017. It will be released by Playground Music, which was the record label of the band 2001- 2011 Singer Lauri Ylönen has commented that "The idea behind the new songs was to make the kind of music that we ourselves would like to hear, we have not forgotten the Nordic melancholy, but also, our new songs have a great number of influences." Dark Matters is like a roller and roller coaster with many different themes and personal feelings. "

A music video for "Wonderman" was directed by Jesse Haaja and premiered on YouTube on September 26, 2017.

On December 1 of the same year the official video of "Silver Night" directed by Vesa Manninen was released, in which they show us a solitary robot in a house. It is the first official video where the members of the band do not appear.

On January 26, 2018 a new official video of The Rasmus is released: "Nothing", which was directed by the bassist of the group Eero Heinonen.
