Richard discusses the future of Rammstein and the live DVD

Richard gave a video interview to Metal Hammer about the future of Rammstein. While confirming that the band is alive, he says that after a meeting held a few months ago, Rammstein decided to extend its break until next year, seeing no need to work on an album now.

More interestingly, Richard confirms the release of several live DVD (he even mentions 3), without giving details. Two tours were filmed since Völkerball: the LIFAD tour (Montreal and New York 2010) and the Made In Germany tour (Paris 2012).

We have a live DVD coming out, we have another live DVD coming out, we have another live DVD coming out. We have so many live DVD right now, that we have to work that through.

Till has written a text for Roland Kaiser

Till Lindemann wrote a text for the German singer Roland Kaiser. The song, Ich weiß alles, will appear on Kaiser's new album Seelenbahnen, to be released on May 30, 2014.

Me and Till - we like each other very much and I asked him if he wouldn't mind to write something for me. As you see, it happened! He gave me a great text, but the melody was hard to find.

8 new songs from the album, including Ich weiß alles, will premiere on May 3rd during Kaiser's "Berlin-Konzert" in the famous O2 World in Berlin.

Rammstein is 20 years old!

On 14 April 1994, exactly 20 years ago, Rammstein played his first "real" concert in a small club of Leipzig, called naTo. They opened for Golden Acker Rhythm Kings, a German band now dissolved, which starred Flake's brother.

Obviously, Rammstein was not created that day, but somewhere between late 1993 and early 1994. But with no official date, Rammstein's first concert is the perfect date to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the band!

Congratulations to Rammstein and Happy Birthday!

This is also a great opportunity to watch (again) the "Achtung! Wir kommen…" documentary, which features the recording of the first demos of Rammstein, and their first concert at naTo.

Wacken 3D will premiere on July 24, 2014

During his participation at the Wacken Open Air festival in 2013, Rammstein had been filmed for the documentary "Wacken 3D - Louder Than Hell" (see our previous news).

The film is now produced and will premiere in Germany on July 24, 2014. It will include performances and interviews of Rammstein and other artists.

It is not expected that the film will be released outside Germany. Other countries will probably have to wait for a possible release on Blu-Ray.

A ballet with Rammstein's music

On April 5, 2014, the ballet entitled "Hard Beat - The ballet skirt" premiered in the "Grosses Haus" theater of Schwerin, Germany. For the first time, a ballet places the music of Rammstein at its center, with the use of songs like Mein Herz brennt, Engel or Ohne dich. Other artists used are AC/DC or Metallica.

The success seems to be huge, since most of the performances scheduled until June are sold-out.

[April Fools' Day] Jared Leto to colaborate with Rammstein

Some hours ago, Jared Leto, the singer of 30 Seconds to Mars, tweeted that he will colaborate with Rammstein on a new song, which will be recorded this summer in Los Angeles. The tweet has later been removed, probably because Leto was asked by Rammstein to remove it.

Jared and Till met in Berlin in February, when Till attended the 30 Seconds to Mars concert at O2 World Arena. This was the beginning of the collaboration.

We don't know yet if the song will be in German or English, or be sung in duet or not.

April 2, 2014 update:

This news was of course for April Fools' Day!
