Finnish rockers The Rasmus return with the follow up to their massive Top 3 hit single In The Shadows. Guilty is released in the UK through Island Records on 09 August 2004.

Guilty is taken from the band's debut UK album release Dead Letters, which was released back in April, shipping just under 200,000 copies in the UK in less than two months. The album is expected to reach platinum status by the Autumn.
The promo video for Guilty was filmed in Los Angeles in May and is directed by Nathan Cox (Linkin Park - In The End / Points Of Authority, Coal Chamber - Loco, System Of A Down - Sugar). The single will be available on enhanced CD and 7" vinyl formats, track-listings as follows:

02. Play Dead
03. Used To Feel Before
04. Guilty

7" vinyl
B. First Day Of My Life
(Live XFM Session)

The Rasmus took the UK by storm with the release of In The Shadows. A monumental single, it was A-listed by BBC Radio 1, XFM, Virgin and Capital, holding steady in the Top 3 of the UK airplay chart for over a month. The video for the single hit the No.1 spot in the TV airplay chart, featuring on heavy rotation on MTV main, MTV2, MTV Hits, Emap's The Hits, The Box, Scuzz, Flaunt, amongst others. The single was awarded 'Single Of The Week' by no less than five publications and the band have also graced the covers of Kerrang and Rocksound magazines.

After upgrading to larger venues, their four date UK tour at the end of April sold out in days, and lead to the band confirming two consecutive shows on 25 and 26 June at the London Astoria, both of which also sold out.

What seems like an overnight success has taken years of graft on behalf of the foursome from Helsinki. Dead Letters is the band's fifth album to date. Formed in 1994, when the band were all 14 years old, their first three albums firmly established them as one of the finest young bands emerging from Finland.  Their fourth album, Into, released in 2001 when the band were still teenagers, was their European breakthrough album. Both the release of Into and support slots on tour with the likes of HIM, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Garbage was to pave the way for the band's masterstroke - Dead Letters.
