You don't really know Till Lindemann
until you've seen him prancing on the sand in a Hawaiian shirt. German industrial metallers Rammstein
are a fun couple of dudes, as evidenced by their penchant for pyrotechnics and cinematic video epics. Their latest clip for "Mein Land
" takes it back to a 1964 Southern California beach party with merry babes in bikinis, later turning into a nighttime, fire-filled, lesbian-esque fight club.
The video was created by the renowned Swedish director Jonas Åkerlund
who has previously worked with Metallica
, Ozzy Osbourne
and The Prodigy
. The band, according to nifty interpretations from Reddit
, is donning Swiss tourist drag ... perhaps. Paired with the "Where are you going? There's no space here anymore, this is my land!
" lyrics, it's a parodic dig at European xenophobia.
The "Mein Land
" single officially drops on November 14 as four-track release via iTunes bunched with previously unreleased song "Vergiss Uns Nicht
", remixes from BossHoss
, and the "Mein Land" video and a digital booklet. It will also be available on Amazon with fewer trimmings. Come December 6th, Rammstein will release their long-awaited retrospective set "Made In Germany 1995 - 2011
" through Universal Germany's marketing and distribution deal in the U.S. with Vagrant Records.
