The band also recently confirmed that they recorded a new album during the coronavirus lockdown. “The fact that we couldn’t perform live increased our creativity,” keyboardist Christian ‘Flake’ Lorenz told Motor Music. “We had more time to think of new things and less distraction. As a result, we recorded a record that we hadn’t planned on.”
In other news, a Russian activist has been sentenced to prison for sharing Rammstein’s video for ‘Pussy’ online six years ago.
Andrei Borovikov was charged with “manufacturing and distributing pornography” and was later found guilty by a Russian court.
