Due to the seriousness of the current situation that is beyond everyone`s control, we are regrettably forced to cancel this year’s North America tour. At the moment everything has come to a halt. The American authorities are not currently processing any visa or customs applications and the borders are closed, with no entry permitted to the USA. No one knows when normality will return and this will become possible again, or more specifically when public events will be allowed to take place.

We were greatly looking forward to these concerts ‒ to having you all there and performing ‒ but the risk that this travel ban will be extended is simply too great. Unfortunately, the likelihood that all the required formalities can still be processed in time gets smaller with each passing week. If we don’t make a decision soon, a later cancellation would be a financial disaster for us as a band from which we might never recover. For this reason we have decided to pull the rip cord now, even if it weighs incredibly heavily on us, and we put our trust in your understanding and solidarity.


With the saddest of greetings,

Your Einstürzenden Neubauten

After more than 12 years, Einstürzende Neubauten’s long-awaited new studio album is finally going to be released and will be performed live on an upcoming extensive tour called THE YEAR OF THE RAT. The album and the tour mark the quintessence of the band’s output, opening yet another unexpected door in 40 years of ongoing sound research by a very experimental group of musicians around Blixa Bargeld, consisting of Alexander Hacke, NU Unruh, Jochen Arbeit and Rudi Moser. The Neubauten tour in the band’s own impressive and unrivaled style presents the results of these latest musical innovations. This band, like nearly no other, has managed to create a musical cosmos. It has, in fact, built up its own genre by uniquely combining edgy sounds with sophisticated poetry. Appropriately, in the Year of the Rat – the symbol of ingenuity and versatility according to the Chinese zodiac – the band is not resting on the laurels of its last four decades. Instead, it curiously continues to explore everything that the sound universe has to yield, with one eye on the future and with boundless playfulness.
