Inverse Records releases FM2000‘s eighth full-length album “Happohotelli” in March.

The upcoming album’s second single Tammikuu (January) is out now. Listen to the song on music services:

“The lyrics are a work of mourning and tell the story of the loss of two friends over the Christmas period. I couldn’t move forward in life until the lyrics were written in the flesh,” comments the band’s singer Antti Junttila, who wrote the lyrics.

The album features a completely new FM2000 soundtrack. The band’s characteristic heavy-punk-klezmer has been taken to an experimental, electronic soundscape that drawing inspiration from the world of retro gaming.

The lyrics move between everyday malaise and weekend celebrations. The album was produced by Tuomas Kokko (e.g. Timo Rautiainen & Trio Niskalaukaus, Swallow The Sun, Ghost Brigade) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (e.g. Rammstein, Volbeat, Michael Monroe)
