Although many fans from the beginning seem to turn their back on them, Tokio Hotel keep on going on and building what seems to be a future career from now on. It's official: the third album of the band will be released at the end of the year, if everything goes as planned. A rather surprising piece of news if you consider that Bill & Co. had declared their wish to take time to release the successor to "Zimmer 483". But obviously TH is so inspired that it decided to come back to the studio earlier than expected to record this new album. "Bill's mind is filled with ideas for this album", revealed David Jost, the manager of the band. "Every day he has a new idea for the songs and he writes nonstop. His recent stay in the hospital for his problem to the vocal chords as well as the great tour of the band in Europe and in the USA inspired him a lot. Some of the most recent lyrics he wrote are about nostalgia or homesickness. This album will be - I'm sure about that - the most personal. The boys also want it to be perfect from end to end. Every title should have the potential of a hit raised to the power..." Even if Bill didn't want to reveal any hint about the sound of this third album, his brother Tom proved to be a little more talkative. "With this new album, we want to surprise the audience. Ideally, I'd like to include songs which will make our fans say: "What's this? Is this really Tokio Hotel?" But as they listen to these songs, they'll understand that this is indeed us, that our sound evolved, that he's got rich of new influences. For now these are only my ideas, but the other three should agree with me [laughs]" Neverthless, the German quartet agreed on releasing the album in two versions, one in German and one in English. In this way, no one will be jealous.

How hard is it for a German rock band to break it big in the U.S.? For most, even conquering Europe is still no guarantee that label executives here will see and hear anything original, groundbreaking, or just plain good enough to warrant a contract.

German emo quartet Tokio Hotel is the first to do so in a long, long time and they’re breaking down barriers in a huge way, making new fans here as readily as U.K acts have done for ages.

A lot of their success can be chalked up to the androgynous charisma of their teenage frontman Bill Kaulitz, who appears on the album cover with his trademark giant hair, looking like an angry, punk-y, elf.

Their debut single, the angsty, tense-yet-rollicking “Ready, Set, Go!” is not only on the charts, it was incorporated in an episode of The Hills.

The band shows its depth (the degree of which is remarkable when you consider that these are very young men) on their second single, the non-sappy, shimmering ballad “Monsoon,” where stacks of processed guitar chords shimmer and throb on the chorus.

Tokio Hotel really writes to the song, allowing whatever they need to stylistically to carry it off. Sometimes they’re emo, sometimes more punk, sometimes more bubblegum pop, other times more glam-sounding or even Detroit-style garage. Maybe here or there a flourish of electronica would serve nicely, or a strain of somber cello… no problem. They add it.

But the common denominator is that their music is well written, melodic, and original. Three attributes that will get you noticed in the music world. And Scream has landed inside the Top 40 of the Billboard 200 album chart, and also made them household names across Europe and in Canada.

Kaulitz’ voice is fantastic, and adding charm to it is his slight accent. This is, after all, their first English-language album. But there is also no dead weight here. Guitars, drums and bass are handled with chops and maturity of music school grads.

Fans of guitar-based rock and hooky melodies, but who don’t want to rot their teeth on overly-sweet confections of many axe-wielding pop ensembles, will love Tokio Hotel: a band that can start an ultimately hummable tune with a blast of ferocity.

Tokio Hotel is surely a band to watch in the future, but more important, a band to hear right now.
