Rammstein guitarist Richard Kruspe says the band will return – but only when they all feel they have an artistic vision that is worth exploring.
The band hooked up in late 2014 to discuss a new album and agreed to stay on hiatus and meet up again at the end of this year to discuss it again.
Kruspe tells Loudwire: “We meet always once a year and talk about things. We decided to postpone for another year. Next year in September we’ll meet again.
“There’s no plan for an album and no plan for a tour at the moment. That’s where we stand.”
“We don’t have pressure to do certain things when there’s no vision. I think it’s a problem that sometimes you have to do records to promote a tour without a vision.”
Kruspe believes there’s too much of that about in the modern world. “Quantity comes along and the quality sucks at the moment. So I like the position – Rammstein do not have to do a record but we can still headline at some festivals. It’s a privileged situation.”
Kruspe is currently working with his side project band Emigrate, while frontman Till Lindemann is busy recording his solo album which is due out in May.
