Hey popsters<3! After one week off we're back in business again! Last week was our second and last free week of this summer, or it was supposed to be free, until we got invited to play a couple of unplugged songs at a TV-show called Arvostele mun illallinen! It's the second week in a row we're doing something on TV, but I guess it's good to get used to it.. :D We had a lot of fun and everybody, from the guests in the program to the camera guys and girls, seemed to be enjoying themselves and our music :)

The rest of the week was free, and I spent it on a boat in the Finnish archipelago. As you might have noticed, I tend to write these texts from all over the world, but there's no place like the sea of the hundreds of islands on the west coast of this country. Beaches in the Caribbean are of course also ok, but they're just not the same.. Having spent the ten first summers of my life on a boat might also have something to do with this. There's nothing like falling asleep in the front cabin to the steady sound of a boat engine <3

People in the archipelago are all unbelievably kind and helpful in every single way, and I think anyone who has prejudices against Finnish people should visit some of the lovely islands in the west and see it for themselves. After all, we don't have to be sad, we don't have to dress in black and we don't have to play and listen to depressing music. We all can be happy, colorful and listen to Satin Circus 24/7 <3

After one week of visiting dozens of pure summer paradises it's time to get back to the music, and this week is gonna be one of the busiest in a long time. We're shooting a music video on Friday, warming up for Europe (!!!!) and Apocalyptica at Osla Live on Saturday and filming the rest of the video on Sunday. Before that we have to practice more than ever, organize everything for the video, record new songs and do a lot of other secret stuff ;)

Feels great to be back!!
