RAMMSTEIN Parts Ways With Singer, Announces Replacement – July 16, 2007
Emanuel Fialik of Pilgrim Management GmbH, which represents German industrial metal pioneers RAMMSTEIN, has issued the following press release:
“On the 13th of July 2007 the industrial gothic top act RAMMSTEIN announces that after the release of the next studio album, which is about to get finished, the current singer and frontman Till Lindemann will leave the band.
“Till’s decision is mainly based on the increasing inharmoniousness within the band and was well deliberated. He will head now for other challenges which can be a solo career or maybe a new project (as of his own words).
“The band decided not to quit but announce a new singer. There is a clear statement coming from Richard Kruspe and Christoph Schneider that ‘nobody ever can replace Till Lindemann’ but since ‘we have still so much fun doing RAMMSTEIN we looked for a new singer which is charismatic in his own way without copying Till.’
“The new singer which was found and signed to be the new RAMMSTEIN frontman is the co-founder and ex-member of the electro industrial act KMFDM and current singer of SLICK IDIOT “” En Esch “” who recently moved to Berlin to join the band.
“We all will miss Till Lindemann who gave us many years of joy by listening to his unique grinding voice. Please welcome the talented En Esch “” Till’s footsteps are big, but maybe he can dry our tears rapidly.”
RAMMSTEIN will issue its “Völkerball” DVD in the U.S. in September. The exact release date will be announced soon.
RAMMSTEIN’s latest album, “Rosenrot”, received its long-overdue U.S. release in March 2006 via Universal Music. The CD, which was certified platinum in Germany for sales in excess of 200,000 copies within two weeks of release in October 2005, topped the official album chart in Germany, Austria and Finland, and landed at No. 2 in Sweden and Denmark, No. 4 in the Netherlands and the Czech Republic, No. 5 in France, No. 6 in Mexico, No. 11 in Italy and No. 29 in the U.K. In addition, “Rosenrot” achieved gold status in Austria, the Czech Republic and Switzerland.
This information has not been officialy confirmed.
2019 and this still shows up. I’m looking at the dates as I’m listening to Rosenrot and thinking, “that’s not En Esch…”
Wtf him leaving he’s the reason I put up with life the music he sang changed my life and kept hope alive to my hurting and broken inner self
This article was published in 2007 and was an April fools joke. He’s not leaving.
I saw this in 2018 and almost had a panic attack, until I realized how old this was. I couldn’t handle Till leaving Rammstein… don’t scare me like that!
It’s funny how people STILL freak out about
this April fools thing. 😀
There is constantly stuff like that written around the net. I can believe they
even sended e-mails to this other guy. This is Hilarious. Rammstein is all
those 6 people. If one of them is gone the band will not exist. That’s pretty
much obvious. Calm you shit already.
Damn, some of this is like people reading in 2015 that the world is going to end in 2012… And then they get all hysterical about it.
you people being SOOOO obsessed with Till i hope you are just under 13 years old cause if not you got serious issues.. this is not normal,wake the fuck up,get out of your house that you’re locked in just do something.. a guy in youtube said i want to give till a handjob and he got 200 thumbs up.. i mean what the fuck??? you people are psychos
yea that is how i feel whenever i see comments regarding the band members in a sexual way. I also believe they are a force that cannot be defeated, especially Till. He will kill you before you even say a word ok.
