Rammstein tease stills from new Jonas Åkerlund-directed video shoot


Rammstein are currently gearing up to release their long-awaited new studio album, which is expected to arrive in April.

They recently checked in to report they were in the process of mixing the follow-up to 2009’s Liebe ist für alle da, with guitarist Richard Kruspe telling Kerrang that Rammstein were planning on releasing five videos from the as-yet-untitled record.

And judging by a new post on Instagram, it would appear that work on the first promo is under way – and it has a religious theme.

The band uploaded four pictures from the set with the caption: “No fire, but nuns!”

One of the shots shows frontman Till Lindemann holding a crucifix, while the clapperboard shows the title Black Dog, Big Fish – and it’s being directed by Jonas Åkerlund.

Check the pictures out below.

Speaking previously about the musical direction on the new album, guitarist Paul Landers told Guitar World: "It’s not too sterile, not too clean – it has a lot of life and energy in it, but it’s not all angry. 

“The music is more than that. It’s different for Rammstein. You might even say it’s fun to listen to.”

Rammstein will head out on the road across Europe this summer.

... no fire, but nuns! Rammstein
