"You name it, everything you could argue about, we have"
The as-yet-untitled album will be the band’s seventh studio album, which is slated for an April release ahead of the band’s European stadium tour. The long-awaited record will be the follow-up to 2009’s ‘Liebe Ist Für Alle Da‘.
Speaking to Kerrang, guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe explained: “We flew to Los Angeles to mix the record with Rich Costey, who has worked with Muse and a bunch of other big bands.
“It looks like we will have five music videos coming out this time, too. I feel really happy with the album, although a few things might still change, of course.”
Kruspe also opened up about the recording process, saying: “It’s so funny — during this recording process we’ve been like six guys in a band, arguing about each tiny fucking snare hit. That was also such an intense experience. You name it, everything you could argue about we have.”
The metal veteran had previously revealed that he “wasn’t up for” making a new Rammstein record but has since changed his mind.
“But now that it’s done, I’m very proud of what we’ve achieved, ” he said. “And actually, that intensity is what made our songs even better.”
Rammstein are on tour throughout 2019. The German icons will play their only UK at Stadium MK in Milton Keynes on July 6. For their full tour dates, click here.
Recently, ticket resale site Viagogo was told by German courts that it is forbidden to offer second-hand tickets for the forthcoming tour, and that tickets purchased through them will be invalid.
