RAMMSTEIN drummer Christoph Schneider says that European astronaut Thomas Pesquet was one of the first people to hear a new track off the band’s upcoming album.
Pesquet is the commander of the International Space Station who will remain in the role until shortly before Crew-2 return to Earth in November.
On Tuesday (October 6), Schneider revealed that he played Pesquet a song from RAMMSTEIN’s much anticipated new album.
Christoph posted to his Instagram the following: “Space is calling! I had the honor to speak with ISS astronaut @thom_astro on behalf of @rammsteinofficial. He is the current commander of the @iss and living in space since half a year. It felt like a child’s dream coming true for me – talking to a person living in the sky, sharing a glimpse of his view, realizing again how small we all are compared to the depth of the universe… He was the first to listen to one of our new songs from the upcoming album. It premiered in the sky, which is an honor for us. Thank you @nasa @europeanspaceagency and Thomas for this unique experience.”
There is currently no official release date for the new RAMMSTEIN album.
