Apparently RAMMSTEIN is using the coronavirus downtime to work on new music.
The news of possible new material from the band was broken by the band’s drummer, Christoph Schneider, during a recent interview on German radio.
Asked by the show host what the members of RAMMSTEIN are doing to keep themselves busy during the coronavirus pandemic, Schneider revealed that he and his bandmates recently got together and broached the idea of composing new music. “We still have so many ideas lying around, so many unfinished songs,” he said (see video below). Asked if that means that there will be a new RAMMSTEIN album in the not-too-distant future, Christoph said: “We have met and we are working on new songs. We want to work on songs. But whether or not it will turn into an album, nobody knows yet.”
RAMMSTEIN’s seventh, untitled album came out in May 2019 via UME/Spinefarm in Europe and Caroline Records in the U.S. The band’s first studio disc since 2009’s “Liebe Ist Für Alle Da” was produced by Olsen Involtini with RAMMSTEIN and was mixed at a Santa Monica, California studio with Rich Costey, an American producer who has previously worked with MUSE, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE and FRANZ FERDINAND, among others.
