Emigrate

Emigrate LogoEmigrate is the name of a band led by Richard Z. Kruspe, guitarist and founder of Rammstein. It began as a side-project of Kruspe’s in 2005, when Rammstein decided to take a year off from touring and recording. Though, he has told in many interviews, the idea for Emigrate started coming to him around Rammstein’s Mutter era.

On September 5, 2006, members of the Rammstein.de newsletter were sent an invitation to the Emigrate newsletter and given the chance to download the song “Wake Up”, a sneak peek of the upcoming album. Three song samples were also posted on Emigrate’s website: “My World”, “Babe” and “Temptation”. Fans voted “Babe” as being their favorite, and newsletter recipients were allowed to download “Babe” in its entirety starting November 29, 2006. On May 21, 2007 the Emigrate Official Website opened and “My World” was made available for download, in its entirety, to newsletter subscribers. Continue reading the full Emigrate Biography.

    Finally, I found the information I was looking for. I have been doing research on this subject, and for two days I keep entering websites that are supposed to have what I’m searching for, only to be discouraged with the lack of what I had to have. I wish I could have located your web-site quicker! I had about 25% of what I needed and your web-site has that, and the rest of what I had to have to complete my research. Thank you and I will report back on how it goes!
