The New RAMMSTEIN Album Is Being Delayed Because Of A Paper Shortage

According to Rammstein composer Sven Helbig, the German industrial band's new album is delayed due to a "paper shortage".

According to RAMMSTEIN composer Sven Helbig, the German industrial band’s new album is delayed due to a paper shortage.

Speaking in a new interview with Sächsische (and translated by RammWiki), Helbig says about the new RAMMSTEIN record: “The band itself doesn’t know [when the new album will be released] at the moment. The trivial reason: lack of paper. They need to be able to send out a large number of CDs and records, i.e. lots of booklets and covers, worldwide at one go. And that’s probably not feasible right now.”

Helbig also went on to say that he can’t reveal anything about the forthcoming album due to the sheer fact that it’s always changing, yet notes that “already a song is out” – in which we are assuming he means removed from the album.

“It’s all under wraps, but it’s also impossible, because the band often throws songs down at the last moment, changes them. Till doesn’t want to rewrite a lyric, but Richard thinks it’s stupid. Or the guitarists can’t agree on a riff. Already a song is out. With the previous albums, I often looked forward to something I’d heard and thought it was great.”
