Although their 2019 tour is still ongoing, Rammstein have added a number of new gig destinations for the following year.
The controversial German metal band Rammstein have announced a tour for 2020, listing Belfast as one of the cities they'll stop by at.
Other cities include Lyon, Warschau, Tallin, Ostende, Berlin, Goteburg, Leipzig, Zurich, Nijmegen, Hamburg, Trondheim, Aarhus, Klagenfurt and Stuttgart.
Dates for the aforementioned cities are yet to be announced.
The band are currently on tour at the moment following the release of their untitled album, which was their first record in a decade.
Controversies have plagued the German band due to their tendency to toe the line of what's tasteful. From mimicking sex acts on stage to writing songs about convicted sex offenders, nothing is "too far" for the German outfit.
Their leading single, 'Deutschland' contains Nazi imagery and a declaration of “Deutschland uber alles” which has alarmed many. The video then shows prisoners shooting at what appears to be SS Guards in the face.
This is not the first time Rammstein have sparked outrage, even ending up in a jail cell during their tour of the US.
However, despite many claims that Rammstein are tied to Nazi and fascist movements, they assert to have leftist tendencies and wrote the song 'Links 1 2 3' to disassociate themselves from far-right campaigns.
