Report: Rammstein to Release New Album in 2018
Rammstein have been talking about a new album for quite some time, as guitarist Richard Kruspe told us in an interview last summer. “It’s always a big challenge for us to do those records, sometimes we’re afraid we won’t survive those records,” divulged Kruspe. “We decided [to] just try to do five songs. All of a sudden, two years later and at the moment we have 28 ideas.”
As for the rumor that the upcoming release will be Rammstein’s last, Kruspe said, “I always believed when we did a record that it was the last one. Always, since the first record,” Kruspe revealed. “Life is full of surprises that always taught me a different lesson. There’s a saying — If you want to make God smile, tell him his plans.”
Rammstein just announced two shows in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for New Year’s Eve 2018 and Jan. 2, 2019. In the show description, StubHub posted, “At this time, the band is in the final phase of the production of their seventh studio album which will be released before the end of the year, so Mexican fans will very likely be the first to hear the new songs, also highlighting that these concerts are the ONLY that the band opened in the whole world during 2018.”
Rammstein’s next studio album will be their first since releasing Liebe ist fur alle da in 2009. Stay tuned for further updates on the band’s new record.
