Emigrate 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.
The video for My World have been released and can be viewed on the official website. The video will also be included on the limited edition release of the album Emigrate. In addition to the video, My World will be featured on the soundtrack to the third Resident Evil movie, Resident Evil: Extinction. The soundtracks to the previous two movies contained “Hallelujah” and “Mein Teil” from Rammstein, respectively. On July 27, 2007 Richard made an appearance on Bruce Dickinson rock show on BBC. A video for New York City has been released and can be watched on Emigrate.eu
