Ville Valo & Agents

The anticipated self-titled album by Ville Valo & Agents, based on songs by the late, legendary Finnish singer Rauli ’Badding’ Somerjoki, will be released on Feb 15, 2019. The release will be followed by a tour kicking off in March. The live set will include fresh interpretations of such Badding classics as Tähdet Tähdet, Paratiisi and Ikkunaprinsessa, as well as the songs from the album including the first single Orpolapsi Kiurun.

”The Agents have been a working band since 1979, so this upcoming Ville Valo & Agents tour is tour number… uh, I don’t know, lost my count already”, guitar legend Esa Pulliainen chuckles. ”I myself started playing live in ’74, when I was barely seventeen - that means that next summer marks my 45th anniversary on the road. The venues and the roadside views have become pretty familiar during those years but I confess that this time ’round I’ll surely have a few butterflies in my stomach. We’ll be touring with the Black Prince himself, Ville Valo!”

The tour will be a one-off collaboration. This means that these upcoming shows offer a truly unique opportunity to witness Ville Valo & Agents live on stage. For the first and last time ever.

”It will be a pleasure and an honour to serve under Captain Pulliainen – and his merry crew! – on this one-time-only exploratory journey through the Finnish wilderness, heading into the blue and white heart of melancholy”, Ville Valo phrases.

Ville Valo & Agents will appear live for the very first time at Emma Gaala, the Finnish equivalent of Grammy Awards, held at Hartwall Arena on Feb 2, 2019.
