Formed by Rammstein’s Richard Kruspe, Emigrate have now set the release date for their new studio album – the follow up to the 2007 self-titled debut, a Top 10 German chart entry.
Titled ‘Silent So Long’, this sophomore outing – produced by Emigrate themselves and mixed in Los Angeles by Ben Grosse (Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, Disturbed, etc.) – features 11 brand new recordings, with a lead single / video to be announced shortly…
As with the debut, Kruspe adds to his guitar playing / song-writing duties by stepping up to the mic, only this time he’s joined by a number of guest singers; there’s Lemmy from Motörhead, Korn’s Jonathan Davis, Marilyn Manson, Canadian born Berlin-dweller, Peaches, plus Frank Dellé from chart-topping German collective Seeed.
“I didn’t write the songs with specific guests in mind,” explains Kruspe, “I just thought who would do the best job on this or that track, and the final performances were everything I was hoping for. You know, I’ve had about five moments in my music career when I’ve been left smiling like a child – one was when Rammstein sold out New York’s Madison Square Garden in 20 minutes (2010), but the last one was hearing Lemmy on tape. It just sounds f**king great! I wrote him a really long message and he came back “alright!” Fantastic!”
