Cover the kids' eyes and break out the fire extinguishers! Rammstein is coming to Nassau Coliseum!

Yes, the German shock-rockers who blend metal, industrial dance music and a live show filled with fire and sexual suggestiveness will headline the arena on April 28. Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. Friday through Ticketmaster.

Although the Berlin-based band who sings primarily in German broke through in America in 1998 with “Du Hast,” they didn't tour much here until last year, when they sold out Madison Square Garden. After another successful tour this year, they are set for a full-fledged arena tour next year, hitting more than 20 cities.

Their greatest hits “Made in Germany: 1995-2011” (Vagrant) is set for a Dec. 13 release – just in time for the holidays. They released the video for the single “Mein Land” on Friday. (For an idea of what the upcoming tour may actually look like, skip ahead to 3:30.)
