Tokio Hotel
After years in exile, Tokio Hotel are on tour again and the culture establishment is crying. No more hypocrisy now. A (gentle) bow to Germany’s most successful band.

Bill and Tom Kaulitz are like a red rag to style conscious Berliners who like to scroll design blogs in the afternoons and as of late fancy drinking filter coffee. Tokio Hotel, that’s a no-go of course. That’s uncool, provincial. Which is complete nonsense in our editorial team’s opinion.

You don’t immediately have to compare this band to the Beatles like „Der Spiegel“ (famous German magazine), to acknowledge how remarkable and rapid their rise from the German suburb to an international super act was. Their style is indeed still special nowadays, but definitely distinct, not the result of a marketing strategy. And at least this reporter has seldom if ever sat with two such pleasant and reflective 25-year-olds in an overpriced hotel room and talked about music and life. The topic of the Kaulitz-brothers, who live in LA by now, is a classic one in pop music: to work oneself up from the periphery to the big city, to be free there. There’s still power in that narrative, even if it may seem worn out. It’s reflected in the title of the new Tokio Hotel album „Kings of Suburbia“, which was produced by themselves with an effort in almost six years, it shows in their humility towards fame.

On one of the first days of autumn, Universal invites to an interview in the „Ritz Carlton“ hotel in Berlin. In front of the hotel there’s a group of rubberneckers who are penetrantly and enviously scrutinizing everyone who is let into the foyer of the new-rich furnished hotel. Through windowless corridors I’m led into the press-suite. Bill and Tom Kaulitz are casually sitting at the window, with a view on concrete, the atmosphere is relaxed. A conversation about growing up in the suburb, freedom and life in a metropolis.

To the question of a journalist, if you ever had a normal youth, you responded with „Yes of course, we had that!“ It’s hard to believe that.
BK: We only noticed that this wasn’t the case in the process of our career. When we were 15 our first single „Durch den Monsun“ was released and was, unlike we all expected, really successful. We didn’t have a plan back then, we got famous over the summer holidays all of a sudden. We only reacted.
TK: At the beginning it was great. Then when you get older, you notice that there’s no life outside of that bubble anymore. Yesterday we wanted to go to the hotel bar and only seconds after that 1000 people were standing at the window. The guy at the bar shut the curtains, and then we sat alone in the corner again, like in a zoo. That way you don’t get anything of life anymore of course.

Fashionnstyle.com: Tokio Hotel’s Bill And Tom Kaulitz Talk New Album…
 

Tokio Hotel’s Bill And Tom Kaulitz Talk New Album ‘Kings of Suburbia,’ And The Sexy Music Video ‘Love Who Loves You Back’
[EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW]
Tokio Hotel is back!

Founded in 2001, the German pop rock band became huge in the 2000s, selling over 7 million albums worldwide. Though they were biggest in Europe and South America, they also made their mark in the US, becoming the first German band to win a VMA (for Best New Artist). In 2011, the band took a much-needed break and founding members Bill and Tom Kaulitz moved to Los Angeles to enjoy a little anonymity. The result – their first album in five years, “Kings of Suburbia.”

We called up Bill and Tom to talk about Tokio Hotel’s new album, the super sexy music video for their lead single “Love Who Loves You Back” and their “Mariah Carey tour rider.”

Moving from Germany to Los Angeles was a huge change for you. What was that experience like?
Bill: It was a massive change. You can’t even compare how we were living then and how we’re living now. We were on the road for such a long time. We’ve been performing since we were 15, we were been putting out one album after another and traveling all the time. So we never really had a private life aside from the career. It was just a lot of work and traveling all the time. We got burned out. We needed a change. We didn’t want to make another album that just sounded like the one before it. So we really needed that change, and Tom and I were finally able to go outside without any security, without having people in front of your house, and just be like normal people.

Do you think you’ll ever move back to Germany?
Tom: I don’t know, I don’t think so.
