Apocalyptica To Release Second Single, Tour Dates

On Monday the second single of the new album "Apocalyptica" will be released. "Wie Weit" introduces three versions of the "Apocalyptica"-track "Quutamo": The French version features Manu of Dolly, the English and German versions feature Marta Jandová of Germany's alternative-hipsters Die Happy. Moreover, on this Saturday Apocalyptica and Marta will take part in the German "Bundesvision-Contest" presenting Baden Württemberg with "Wie Weit". So the single "Wie Weit" might enter the shops as the best German song of this contest - performed by a Finnish band.

In February Apocalyptica supports the Europe-tour of Rammstein covering livedates in Germany, France and many other countries. Rammstein will release their new single "Keine Lust" on February 28th and you should be sure to get a glance on the extraordinary video. One can honestly say, that the band lost quite some of its fitness and gained quite some weight for this video... The band members' new body proportions are obviously the result of hard make-up work, but the result looks astonishingly realistic.
