In a conversation with Kerrang! Magazine, Rammstein founding guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe has revealed the German industrial-metal band's as-yet-untitled upcoming album will arrive this spring accompanied by five separate music videos.
"We flew to Los Angeles to mix the record with Rich Costey, who has worked with Muse and a bunch of other big bands," he told the site of the successor to the band's 2009 record Liebe ist für alle da, adding "I feel really happy with the album, although a few things might still change, of course."
Kruspe also commented on the Neue Deutsche Härte progenitors' first European stadium tour next year, claiming their famous stage antics will not be tampered and fans can expect a "really, really big and super-intense show." The group's fiery, innuendo-laden performances are mythical in proportion, and even once led to the arrest of frontman Till Lindemann and keyboardist Flake Lorenz in 1999 for "lewd and lascivious behavior" following a Worcester, Massachusetts concert where the two simulated anal sex with a large phallus during "Buck Dich."
The guitarist also mentions that the tensions that ran high during the recording process ultimately led to better songwriting. "We've been like six guys in a band, arguing about each tiny fucking snare hit. That was also such an intense experience," he says. "You name it, everything you could argue about we have."
No title or street date has been announced for the new record, but we'll keep you posted as information arrives.
