Before the release of their new single, Anguish, tomorrow (April 29), Rammstein teased his music video via a short but disturbing clip.
Anguish feature on the highly anticipated new album by the German sextet, Weatherwhich is also released tomorrow.
Rammstein will unveil the full video at 8:00 a.m. PDT / 11:00 a.m. EDT. Fans can actually catch it a day early tonight at select theaters around the world as part of a premiere event for the band’s upcoming album. A complete list of participating cinemas is available on Rammstein’s website.
In the teaser, Rammstein is positioned in a circular set, separated by fences and walls, featuring different scenarios, depicting everything from conservative stay-at-home husbands to armed guard dogs surrounded by barbed wire. Then, sinister characters appear wearing strange facial gear and ghostly face paint, because well, is it really a Rammstein video if it doesn’t leave a little trail of pee in your pants?
Last month, the band released the first taste of their upcoming album with a music video for the title track. Zeit. To learn more about the making of the striking video, Metal Hammer spoke with its director, Robert Gwisdek. For added insight, we’ve also enlisted the help of an Oxford professor to expertly unpack each song on the full disc.
Weather follows on from 2019’s Untitled album and was recorded at La Fabrique studios in Saint-Rémy de Provence, France, with producer Olsen Involtini.
The album will be available on multiple formats, including a standard CD, a special edition six-panel CD digipack with a 56-page booklet, and a 180g double vinyl with a 20-page full-size booklet. It will also be available digitally. The cover features a photo of the group on the steps of the Trudelturm, a pre-World War II aircraft testing facility in Berlin. It was shot by Canadian rock star/photographer Bryan Adams.
