Rammstein Announces North American Tour Dates

RAMMSTEIN will bring their brand new live production to North America this spring for 21 dates kicking off April 20 in Ft. Lauderdale. Tickets for the tour, presented by Live Nation, will go on sale beginning Friday, Nov. 18 and will be available at Ticketmaster.com and LiveNation.com.

Demand for Rammstein's pyrotechnic-laden performances has been so great in Europe, where they regularly play capacity level soccer stadiums, the band spent nearly a full decade without setting foot on North American shores. In December 2010, the sextet returned to North America for two sold out shows including a performance at Madison Square Garden. Rammstein followed with a 9-day trek of major North American cities in Spring 2011.

The tour announcement comes on the heels of news of the band's first retrospective release, "Made In Germany 1995 - 2011," which will be available in North America (through a distribution deal between Universal Germany and Vagrant Records) on Dec. 13. Rammstein recently released "Mein Land," a new four-track digital single that features two new songs: the title track and "Vergiss uns Nicht" as well as remixes from BossHoss and Mogwai. A video directed by Jonas Akerlund for "Mein Land" can be seen here. Rammstein's most recent full-length album, "Liebe Ist Für Alle Da," debuted at #13 on the Billboard Top 200 in October 2009.

Just For Fun

A Tribute To "Pussy"

It was two years ago today that Rammstein created a stir with their music video for the single "Pussy", off the album "Liebe Ist Für Alle Da." Between the song's name, lyrics, and explicit music video, the video instantly went viral and made for Metalunderground.com's most read article ever in just a few months (now topping 400,000 views), thanks to the thousands of Internet searches turning up our article as a result. Imagine that: searches for "pussy" would trump other metal-related searches on the 'net. Gasp!

The band debuted the uncensored version of the video on a porn site and had multiple versions of the video banned from YouTube before finally blurring entire scenes containing the offensive images beyond recognition.

As a viral hit and with such a title and subject, as well as being both funny and explicit at the same time, the song has predictably become one to cover (or remix) just to prove a band of any sort to be edgy or maybe in some perverse sense of fun. Let's take a look at a few such covers and parodies:

Just last month Daveyboyz (also known for Heavy Metal Farmer) released a video parody of Rammstein's "Pussy" music video, entitled "Cookie." Despite the change, you can't help but think of the original lyrics when watching this disturbing parody:

Apocalyptica Comments On Rammstein Lawsuit

Finnish cello rock act Apocalyptica has posted the following statement online, in response to previous reports that the band had been sued by German metal act Rammstein. The statement reads;

"The [Anwalt24.de] article's headline [which suggested that Apocalyptica was forced to pay damages to Rammstein] is substantially wrong: neither the band Apocalyptica nor their management are or were involved in the described lawsuit. However, the parties involved are the band Rammstein and Sony Music Entertainment GmbH, as the successor of the by now-defunct affiliated label GUN Records.

"Apocalyptica and Halbe Miete Management regret the events, but neither had any influence on a violation of trademark and naming rights, nor any part in whatsoever resulting agreements.

"It is correct that GUN Records published advertisements with the stated endorsement disregarding existing agreements, and the band Rammstein subsequently filed a lawsuit against Sony Music Entertainment GmbH as the parent company. It is furthermore correct that Sony Music Entertainment GmbH and Rammstein have agreed on a settlement, the details of which, however, are unknown to Apocalyptica and Halbe Miete Management. We ask that further articles on the topic correctly reproduce the facts."

Apocalyptica Sued By Rammstein

Apocalyptica has experienced a couple legal hurdles recently. First, The Regional Court of Berlin has convicted Apocalyptica for trademark infringement against Rammstein. The Finnish cello metallers face a fine of 45,000 Euro. The Finnish band was sued over the album's release being promoted on stickers, magazines and posters with the words "featuring Rammstein" without the authorization of the band and their management, despite the appearance of Rammstein frontman Till Lindemann and guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe on the track "Helden" (a David Bowie cover of "Heroes").

In other Apocalyptica news, Atlantic Records would not give clearance to promote the album version of "Not Strong Enough," which features Brent Smith of Shinedown, to radio in the US. This was due to Shinedown's "Diamond Eyes (Boom-Lay Boom-Lay Boom)" track off The Expendables soundtrack competing for radio play at the same time. Doug Robb of Hoobastank has now recorded a vocal track for the song and that is the version that will be going to radio in the U.S. on January 18, 2011. The track will be released digitally as well.

UPDATE: Apocalyptica has commented on the Rammstein law suit to clarify the situation.

Metal Bits

Sometimes there are interesting bits in the metal world that aren’t exactly newsworthy on their own, might not qualify as “just for fun,” or might even be too old to warrant a new post of its own. So here’s a round-up of some interesting metal bits around the ‘net this week:

Episode 3 of "Shit Phil Says” is now up on Metal Injection.

Abigail Williams members lob a dildo at IWrestledABearOnce via Metal Sucks.

An acoustic "Radio Disney Version" of Slayer's "Raining Blood" has been making rounds online:

And from the same video author I discovered a fake Rammstein cover of "99 Luftballons" (Nena Cover):

This will be the only US show by the Berlin-based six-piece band, who have not performed in the United States since 2001. The show was announced September 27th, tickets went on sale for the show Friday, October 8th at Noon Eastern and before an hour passed, tickets were officially sold out. This makes RAMMSTEIN the first German band in history to accomplish such a feat.

The band’s most recent album, Liebe ist für alle da (“Love is there for all”), was released in November 2009 and hit #1 on many charts across Europe, and entered on the Billboard Charts at #13 – the highest chart entry for Rammstein in the United States ever – and boosted their worldwide catalog to over 16 million albums sold.
