2019 is turning out to be quite the year. While Rammstein guitarist Paul Landers recently revealed that their long-awaited album would be arriving in 2019, his guitar cohort Richard Kruspe just offered up additional details on the progress of the disc and what’s to come for the band.
Kruspe, who also is promoting the A Million Degrees album from his other band Emigrate, revealed to United Rock Nations Radio in a chat that mixing on the new Rammstein album is expected next month. He also stated that while Emigrate does have new music coming out, he likely won’t tour in support of it as Rammstein’s promotional activities will be ramping up next year.
“I really don’t have the time for that. I’m going to Los Angeles in the middle of December to mix the Rammstein record,” Kruspe explained. “After that, we are in the middle of tour preparation, and then we’re gonna be on tour for the next three years. So first of all, there’s no time, but even if there were time at the moment, I like the balance that I have with the Emigrate project and Rammstein.”
Further speaking about the upcoming Rammstein release, Kruspe added, “To me, the process of doing this record was something that I’m very happy with, because we’ve managed to gain a certain kind of respect back that we have lost in the past. It also kind of reminded me, the way that we are at the moment, as [compared to] the beginning from Rammstein. So, music-wise, I think it’s richer when it comes to harmonies and melodies.”
Rammstein have been working on the album with producer Rich Costey. This will be their first new studio album since 2009’s Liebe Ist Fur Alle Da.
