Rammstein Planning To Release New Album In April

Richard Z. Kruspe was recently interviewed by Heavy Consequence and talked a bit about Rammstein’s new album. According to him, the effort is “going to come out probably in April of 2019.”

Kruspe said the following about the album:

“Eventually, I think it’s going to be an album that has a certain kind of potential that Rammstein hasn’t achieved yet. For me, one of the reasons to step back into making records with Rammstein was to balance the popularity of the band as a live act with the actual music. With Rammstein, people tend to talk about the fire and all the live stuff. I thought, ‘I don’t want to be another KISS,’ where people talk about makeup and stuff like that and no one talks about the music.”

“I wanted to do a record that stands out even more than our past records, and I kind of find when I listen to the [new] record, it’s like Rammstein 3D, if I can summarize it. We’re happy to work with my good friend Olsen Involtini, who also worked on Emigrate records. He a great friend of mine, and he brought certain kind of harmonies into the world of Rammstein, which I like.”

“I’m so close to the project, it’s always hard to say. The next step is going to be what the fans will think about it. But I think that in the world of making records, it’s so important to please yourself first. It’s like, if you don’t like it, how can you expect other people to like it. I’m trying to bring the record into a dimension that Rammstein hasn’t achieved yet.”

“We’re finishing up the last mixes, and it’s going to come out probably in April of 2019.”
