Back in late January, Rammstein shared a behind-the-scenes look at an apparently religious-themed video they were working on with director Jonas Åkerlund, whipping their legion of worldwide fans into a frenzy regarding the impending release of the band's first album in 10 years and the five new music videos the group has planned to release along with it. In a brand new teaser posted to the group's social media accounts today, March 26th, the masters of Neue Deutsche Härte revealed what appears to be a sliver of one of those clips: 30 seconds of tantalizing footage showcasing four of the six band members standing solemnly at a gallows in prisoners' clothing.
Following the slow panning shot that brings into focus the bloodied face of singer Till Lindemann alongside those of keyboardist Flake, guitarist Paul Landers and bassist Oliver Riedel, the clip's gray atmosphere and rumbling electronic tones come to an abrupt halt with a screen touting "Deutschland XXVIII.III.MMXIX" along with the band's iconic logo. No confirmation yet as to whether this is the song and video's title, but audiences will likely find out in two days.
According to recent interviews, Rammstein will release the album this spring, and they're set to embark on a European stadium tour from May 17th to August 22nd. Guitarist Richard Kruspe noted that the band "flew to Los Angeles to mix the record with Rich Costey, who has worked with Muse and a bunch of other big bands" for the follow-up to their 2009 LP Liebe ist für alle da.
Below, check out some additional clips, rumored to be scenes from forthcoming Rammstein music videos, shared by Specter Berlin, including footage of an ornately bejeweled queen holding Lindemann's disembodied head.
