RAMMSTEIN: 'Ich Tu Dir Weh' Video To Debut On Monday

"Ich Tu Dir Weh" (English translation: "I'll Hurt You"), the new video from German industrial metallers RAMMSTEIN, will make its online debut on on Monday, December 21 at 1:00 p.m. CET at visit-x/rammstein. According to a press release, the clip "is the ultimate distillation of a RAMMSTEIN concert into five minutes. As with the preceding video, 'Pussy', Jonas Åkerlund [METALLICA, SATYRICON, MADONNA, THE PRODIGY] stands at the helm as director, and for 'Ich Tu Dir Weh', he captures the show on the band's 'rehearsal stage' in 35mm. A full-bodied format to do filmic justice to RAMMSTEIN's own brand of 'widescreen' staging.

"The plan was simple. Åkerlund uses the language of grand cinema, RAMMSTEIN delivers the rest: the theatre, the flesh, the frenzy. The result is formidable. 'Ich Tu Dir Weh' shows the band at its purest and most concentrated. A beast, only awakened to life onstage under the spell of fire and a maddening roar."

"Ich Tu Dir Weh" comes off RAMMSTEIN's new album, "Liebe Ist Für All Da", which sold 22,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to debut at position No. 13 on The Billboard 200 chart. Previously, the group's best rank came with its 1998 chart debut, "Sehnsucht", which peaked at No. 45 off the strength of its only U.S. radio chart hit, "Du Hast". Although the band just had its highest chart debut, "Reise, Reise" sold over 26,000 copies in the U.S. its opening week of sales.

Worldwide chart positions reaffirm RAMMSTEIN's status as one of the most internationally popular rock bands with seven #1 sales chart positions including their native Germany as well as platinum and gold certifications already awarded for numerous European countries.
