Two sets of piano players, Duo Jatekok and Duo Abélard, are set to support the band’s shows in both Europe and North America. View the full tour itinerary below.

The news follows the release of the German band’s eighth album, ‘Zeit’, which was released last month. This is not the first time Duo Jatekok has opened for Rammstein – they also acted as support for them in 2017 and 2019, even collaborating with the provocative industrial band on stage.

In a four-star review of their latest record, NME wrote: “‘Zeit’ might be a more reflective album than previous Rammstein records, but it’s still an energetic, swaggering beast. Nearly 30 years into their career, the band remain as ambitious and as fiery as ever with their nightmarish, industrial rock sounding as daring as ever.”
