Looks like it won’t be long before Du Hast new Rammstein! The German industrial metal legends have confirmed that the long-awaited follow-up to their 2009 album Liebe Ist Für Alle Da will arrive in 2019.
Speaking with Music Radar (in an interview that was largely about his gear), guitarist Paul Landers has revealed that the flame-throwing, dildo-wielding riff crushers are on target to release a new album in the spring (Aussie Autumn) of 2019.
“Right now, it looks like this new record will be coming out next spring, and what we’ve been mainly doing is playing together in a circle, with all the guys in one room,” Landers says.
“We all go into the mixing desk and I had my PL1 prototype going direct. Same for the some of the other guys — our drummer Christoph Schneider has these electronic drums, so we’ve been using that to play a bunch of ideas together.”
He continues: “It hasn’t been like a pre-production where each member is alone — it’s been more of an all-together kind of thing. We liked the sound of it so much that we’ve decided to make the record more of a band-unit recording than a bunch of guys playing separately.”
The news comes hot on the heels of Rammstein tweeting that they were “Almost done! Orchestra and choir recordings in Minsk for album No. 7!”

And in addition to orchestral and choir sections, Landers adds that Rammstein’s new LP is “inspired by our live sound” (which tbh is amazing news for fans).
Speaking of live, the band haven’t graced an Australian stage together since the 2011 Big Day Out, but we’re keeping our flaming dildos crossed that this new album means they’ll be back for a visit some time very soon!
….There’s still room on the Download 2019 lineup, right?
