A Message from Laika & The Cosmonauts

Editors note: received by email from Janne Haavisto:

There sometimes comes a time in a band's career when things are still great, but you can sense that the natural lifespan is nearing the end. It´s nobody's fault, there´s no reason for it, it just happens. That's where we are with Laika & The Cosmonauts now. We love the band & music and are very proud of all the gigs and records we've done. We don't wanna our good career to go where we end up being a bored/boring bar band that plays too few gigs to keep it tight, with the same songs all the time and gradually keeps getting worse and worse and in the process start hating the music and each other. So...

When we release the compilation, it will be , not only to celebrate our 20th anniversary, but also to enhance the enjoyment of our farewell tour and make it an appropriate finale for the 20 year on the road - we intend to have fun and play great gigs! We'll do as many shows as possible in Finland in August-November and then October in the USA.

We'll be playing the East coast, hopefully the West coast too and then play our final gigs at the Continental Club in Austin, our home away from home (Oct 31st and Nov 1st) and...after which we'll have a few beers and relax, you know...
