Rammstein will release Zeit, their eighth album, on April 29. The album's title track (German for "time") is also its album's first single, which finds the band dabbling in sunny reggae. Just kidding, "Zeit" is full-on operatic, bombastic Rammstein, and you wouldn't want it any other way. Epic is their only mode.

Likewise, "Zeit" comes with one of the band's signature grand guignol music videos, directed by Robert Gwisdek, that has the band literally fighting the sands of time, intercut with grim reapers, birth sequences, the whole circle of life and human existence in six beautifully-shot, over-the-top, probably NSFW minutes. Watch that below.

The full tracklist for Zeit has not been revealed, but you can check out the cover art below.

After having to reschedule twice due to the pandemic, Rammstein will be bringing their "full-scale stadium production" to North America for the first time ever this summer and fall, including a NYC-area show at NJ's MetLife Stadium on September 6. All dates are listed below.
