Fastforward-Magazin.de: Interview with Tokio Hotel
 

Interview with Tokio Hotel
The unofficial fifth band member of Tokio Hotel immediately welcomes me stormily by literally almost scoffing my right hand out of enthusiasm. Okay, usually I’m rarely within touching distance with my interview partners but for Pumba I make an exception of course. Accordingly disappointed Bill Kaulitz’ bulldog is then, as he’s not allowed to take part in the talk, because he is supposed to be walked around the house by a young woman in the meantime. Only reluctant he leaves the suite in the Ritz Carlton, there Bill and Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing, Gustav Schäfer and I have made ourselves comfortable on the sofas by now. “He doesn’t like to go with others, usually he mostly runs after me.”, Bill tells me and sceptically watches for another moment how his little friend wiggles away with sagging ears. But the other band members’ good mood is unabated. Red Bull cans are opened fizzily, to fight the slight upcoming of tiredness. (Tom to Georg: “You won’t pour that into a glass now, or?” Georg: “Yes, I’ll drink a nice little glass now. Cheers!”) Now, after some quiet years, things are happening turbulently again in the Tokio Hotel. All the more I’m happy about it that they’re taking time to talk with me. Preferably when talking about what a band likes doing best – music!

In the last weeks I attentively observed what was going on on your Facebook profile. First there was a big outcry of course, when one could finally listen to the new songs, that your sound has changed so much. I’d be interested if you also think that this change is so extreme? And was it a slow process, or a conscious decision to do it this way?
Tom: It was rather less conscious, but of course we see that this is completely different from what we had done before. When you compare this album with our second one for example, the leap is even bigger of course. With “Humanoid” we already sounded the bell a bit [for the change], at that time we experimented with synthesizers and programmings. We just continued that now. For us it’s a process and development that was taking place over a long period of time.

Bill: After the last album it couldn’t go on for us that way. I didn’t have inspiration at all, we didn’t know which kind of music we wanted to make. Of course we could have screwed together another album like that. But we also were on tour for such a long time, and we first had to get new inspiration. Being authentic or staying true to yourself means to me going along with your development and not only delivering what your fans want to hear from you. I wanted to make a record which I would also listen to at home.

Apelzin.ru: “We are continuing to grow as a band”
 

Tokio Hotel: “We are continuing to grow as a band”
Tokio Hotel is back to music scene with their brand new album “Kings Of Suburbia”. And despite being busy, the guys found the time to talk with “Apelzin.ru” about the modern music industry, favourite artists and as well told us why it took so long to record the new album “Kings Of Suburbia”.

— Now you are on a European promo tour. Will you come to Russia?
We would like to come to Russia. I think in the near future (like next couple of days) that’s not going to happen. But we would like to come and tour. We are definitely going to come and play live and see our Russian fans for sure.

— So Russian fans will see you at your world tour in 2015?
Oh, yes!

— Your last tour “Welcome To Humanoid City” had multiple designs on the stage. What about future concerts? Will you prepare something special?
Yeah, always. I think that people can always expect that we will create a show. So we are not just playing instruments, we are always creating a show. It’s a great experience for everyone and then they can remember. So we will definitely put on something great. We have just started with our creative concepts and ideas. We are going to make a great show. It will be hard to top the last one because it was a great tour but we differently will plan something.
