RAMMSTEIN Guitarist's EMIGRATE Project Announces 'The Persistence Of Memory' Album
September 24, 2021
EMIGRATE, the side project of RAMMSTEIN guitarist Richard Z. Kruspe, will release its fourth album, "The Persistence Of Memory", on November 5.
The official music video for the LP's second single, "You Can't Run Away", directed by Anuk Rohde, can be viewed below.
"The Persistence Of Memory", which was named after a Salvador Dalí painting, features the following tracks:
01. Rage 02. Always On My Mind (feat. Till Lindemann) 03. Freeze My Mind 04. Yeah Yeah Yeah 05. Come Over 06. You Can't Run Away 07. Hypothetical 08. Blood Stained Wedding 09. I Will Let You Go
As a member of RAMMSTEIN, the music world's most explosive live act, Kruspe has been part of a ground-breaking global success story that continues to build and to ignite; along the way, he's turned his attention to a number of parallel projects, such as constructing a studio (and a home) in his native Berlin, but it's his decision to launch the EMIGRATE setup that has given him the greatest chance to satisfy creative instincts outside of the parent group.
The first EMIGRATE album appeared in 2007 (a self-titled record that went Top 10 in Germany, with single/video "My World" appearing on the soundtrack to the third "Resident Evil" movie); "Silent So Long" followed in 2014, featuring guest vocals from such high-profile artists as Marilyn Manson, Jonathan Davis, Peaches and the legend that will always be Lemmy. EMIGRATE's third album, "A Million Degrees" came out in November 2018 and was described as "less a successor to 'Silent So Long' and more a re-booted take on the overall concept, continuing Kruspe's desire to craft something personal."
"I really want the freedom to collaborate with different people and to explore different kinds of music," Kruspe explained when "A Million Degrees" was first released, "to express myself as both a writer and a singer away from deadlines, timelines and other such restrictions. The idea is to keep experimenting and to keep challenging myself. Plus, EMIGRATE works in an organic way, so musicians can come and go, and it's still okay, it's positive…"
RAMMSTEIN's seventh, untitled album came out in May 2019 via UME/Spinefarm in Europe and Caroline Records in the U.S.
RAMMSTEIN will bring its full-scale stadium production to North America for the first time ever in the summer of 2022.
