Just yesterday, Rammstein announced that they’ll be ringing in the new year with a couple of performances over in Mexico, but the rest of us are more focused on the fact that this announcement also saw the band reveal that their new album is coming before the end of this year.
Yes, Rammstein recently announced that they’re set to play two gigs over the summer period, performing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on December 31st and January 2nd, undoubtedly giving their fans an experience they won’t soon forget. However, these concerts were accompanied by some rather interesting information that has fans talking excitedly.
“At this time, the band is in the final phase of the production of their seventh studio album which will be released before the end of the year,” the message read. “So Mexican fans will very likely be the first to hear the new songs.”

Of course, while many fans are excited about finally seeing a follow-up to 2009’s Liebe Ist Für Alle Da, others are a little bit apprehensive, especially following last year’s revelation that the new album could actually be their last.
“I was very skeptical to go back with Rammstein into the studio, because last time we almost broke up because of making a record,” explained guitarist Richard Kruspe.
“So it’s just always very, very stressful and painful. And I think going through that experience – I was a little nervous about that. And we came up with a deal, or an agreement. We said that we wanna go back and only record maybe five songs, to not put any pressure on us.”
“I just feel like, for some reason, that it’s gonna be the last record we do,” he admitted. “That’s a feeling — I can be wrong, but just at the moment, I feel like this is maybe the last shot we have, and I wanna give two hundred percent in that and make it as good as it can be.”
At this point, we can’t say when exactly the band’s long-awaited seventh album will be released, we’re at least happy knowing we’ve only got a maximum of six months to wait until we get it.
