Rammstein have confirmed the cities they'll be performing in during this year's upcoming US tour. 

The band started the teaser campaign by uploading a heatmap to their social media sites, indicating that they’ll tour across North America later this year. 

They followed this up with photographs of various cities, each featuring the Rammstein blimp hovering over the skyline.

Now the band have published an animated gif that confirms the names of those cities, alongside silhouettes of the venues, although no dates have yet been confirmed. The cities are Philadelphia, Mexico City, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Antonio, Chicago, Montreal, Foxborough, Washington D.C. and East Rutherford.

The band are asking people to sign up to a newsletter through their website under the headline Get Ready, Amerika!.

In addition, Rammstein have uploaded a short video showing a clip from the Deutschland promo which was directed by Specter Berlin, with audio narration by Herb Morrison from Chicago radio station WLS.

Rammstein will tour across Europe from May in support of their latest untitled album –  follow-up to 2009’s Liebe ist für alle da.

Meanwhile, frontman Till Lindemann and his Lindemann project recently released a total of five videos for the track Ash So Gern. The song features on their record F & M.
