Rammstein are hoping to release their new album in early 2019. Guitarist Paul Landers spoke with Music Radar about the progress of the recording sessions for the follow-up to 2009’s “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da”, saying: “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.
“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.
“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.”
Landers added: “We’ll have to see how it all ends up on the record, but the basic idea is you are hearing a band playing — you could say it’s inspired by our live sound.”
