In 2007 - Tokio Hotel, Germany’s most successful band released their last album (Zimmer 483). Since then it has been awfully quiet when it comes to new songs of the four Magdeburgers. In the meantime Bill’s vocal cord surgery and the succes abroad is causing some confusion.
That will be over now, cause a new album is planned!

After his vocal cord surgery, the Tokio Hotel frontman Bill Kaulitz was put down to four weeks of silence by his doctors. A difficult time for the singer! But they also brought something good! Since then Bill daily writes new songs for the third Tokio Hotel album.

Bill is constantly coming to me with new ideas for songs,” tells band manager and producer David Jost to Bild.de. Every important lyric idea is written on a hotel flyer or on Bill’s laptop, this way Bill has put together lots of ideas already. “And depending where he is at the moment he is writing short lyrics in his phone.

The time before, during, and after the surgery inspired the singer just as much as the many impressions he got during trips in the USA, France and Spain. “I think Bill’s lyric writing is a crossing between him missing home on one side and not missing it on the other. He wished he was home but at the same time he constantly wants to go further,” Jost tells about Bill’s ideas.

When the production of the third Tokio Hotel album will begin isn’t clear yet. What does the record company say about that?

Of course they are pressuring us, but we just don’t let it influence us. We would be crazy if we would just make a quick album just to make a deadline,” according to Jost.

What is clear: Bill stays true to his own language and will sing in German again!

After Tokio Hotel got big succeses abroad we had to bring out an English album. David Jost tells: “The fans want to get as close to Bill’s true identity as they can. Because of that, they want to hear German lyrics…

Glam-rockers Tokio Hotel [ tickets ] have announced dates for a summer headlining run through North America behind the band's English-language debut, "Scream."

The German quartet--lead singer Bill Kaulitz, guitarist Tom Kaulitz, drummer Gustav Schafer and bassist Georg Listing--is making another attempt on American markets this year after canceling its spring tour following an injury to Kaulitz's vocal chords (and subsequent surgery to remove a cyst).

The group will kick off the upcoming run Aug. 7 in Sayreville, NJ, and plans to visit 11 cities on the trek, which runs through late August. Details are below.

"Scream," released May 6 in the United States, contains English versions of songs from the band's previous German-language albums, 2005's "Schrei" and last year's "Zimmer 483." Although the new album--which is sold as "Room 483" in German-speaking territories, the English translation of "Zimmer 483"--has performed well in Europe, selling more than 600,000 copies to date, the band has struggled to gain popular success in the US, although the group has attracted a ground swelling of support due to its theatrical live act.

Formed in Magdeburg, Germany in 2001, Tokio Hotel [ tickets ] has scored four No. 1 singles and two No. 1 albums in its native Germany, and has sold more than 3 million CDs and DVDs combined, according to a press release.

Translation by Stern at tokiohotelamerica.net/forum - please credit her when you use this. Danke!

German band welcomed with hysteria and devotion. After the cancelled concert in March, this time Tokio Hotel did show up.

“Entering Atlantic Pavilion, on “D-day” for Tokio Hotel, it’s not the movement of people that impresses. The balconies are full – of fans and posters, almost all written in german – but the arena (standing) is pretty rarefied. What impresses, as soon as you enter the doors of the biggest lisbon venue, it’s the sound.

The youngs that are concentraded next to the stage – probably, the same that camped during a week in front of Atlantic and became motive of news report in every TV station – unite themselves in an unbelievable colectiv scream each time the “environmental” music stops playing. Assuming that Bill Kaulitz, Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schäfer, the teenagers that eight years ago created Tokio Hotel, are about to enter the stage. The wildest spectators open their throats and produce such a high and sharp sound that it can be said to be able to perforate the less prepared ears.

subtitle: The cheers were at their tops in Atlantic Pavilion.

We say “they in feminine” because, as it was to expect, the large majority of the public is feminine. There are women (mothers that escort their daughters and, in several cases, also know the musics), teen girls and many, many child girls, as the eight years old child that we saw with a white mini skirt, black leggings with the word “sexy” stamped and lips painted with black lipstick. Next to her, the mother helps her in the moments of greater excitment.

At the set time, the boys that all of this girls wanted to see – since March, time when the other concert was cancelled – enter the stage and provoked, naturally, the risen of the screaming registered till then.

Curtain closed above the stage, a little resembled with what happened, recently, in the concert of 30 Seconds to Mars on that same venue, and the cenary reveals itself in all its elaboration. Several floors – seems like we are in a hard-rock videoclip of the eighties – an interesting light effect and a platform where Bill Kaulitz, the star of the night, will sing several of the themes, in diva mode.

Bill Kaulitz is the center of all atentions.


Unlikely pop star, the 18 years old german showed himself comunicative with the fans, despite the weak english that he showed to speak, in the studied intervations before some musics. Dressed in black and red, Bill Kaulitz – skinny figure, ultra spiky hair and eyes full with black eyeliner and grey shade – it’s clearly the center of atentions, despite the many love declarations that, a little through the all venue, comtemply the other band members.

“Break Away”, the first music of the night, was barely heard due to the fans screaming; “Final Day”, which followed, showed Bill Kaulitz descending the stares, from the platform to the low floor of the stage, with the skills of someone who steps in a catwalk. While the glamourous vocalist, who started his career in a kind of “Chuva de Estrelas” (portuguese show) singing “It’s Raining Men”, debits emotional lyrics with which every young girl present can identify themselves with, the band accompanies him in an almost naked-metal.

“Live every Second” becomes a juvenile hymm, with the public vibrating with the message of inconformism and the quartet enveloping themselves in the crowd flattering, while “Love is Dead” makes appear, in the giant screen in the bottom of the stage, diabolic flames that, probably, match that that burns without be seen. ( reference to Camões, portuguese writer and the that refered is love)



In a kindly setlist, several themes in german weren’t missed – that even the youngest followed without hesitation – and a hand full of ballads old times way, like “Don’t Jump”, with Bill Kaulitz once again in the platform, or the obligatory “Monsoon”, accompanied with thunderstorm clouds in the giant screen.

Curious was the projection of a small film, while the music retreated themselves to change clothes or, who knows, spy the result of the Euro final. On those images, you could see the band shopping and picking clothes, but also walking with “Foofighters” shirts, signing fans boobs and playing foosball. The idea of “live on the road”, so hard and sweet, looks expensive to the band, even in that point follower of a certain hair-metal iconography of the eighties.

In the first of the encores, Tokio Hotel offered the public two ballads with acustic guitars, played by Tom Kaulitz; before “Rescue Me”, his twin brother, Bill, took some more souls to delirium, collecting and keeping in his lap one of the stuffed animals that his fans have thrown him ( the choosen one was a dog).

The last goodbye, with “By Your Side”, slide down in confettis rain and in the sudden apearing of small posters with the symbol of the Portuguese Fan Club with the subtitle “Wir sind da” (we are here). (that’s not the symbol of the Portuguese Fan Club, is a image created to the action) Bombastic and emotional, was the proper ending for a matine that the fans won’t forget so soon.

Sorry for not reminding you guys about the VIP chat yesterday, I myself missed it which Im not happy about!! But I just read on tokiohotelamerica.com this:


"The chat is something that was given by the record label and the band as part of the VIP promotion for people who purchased the CD. When you signed up for VIP access, you agreed that what is contained in the VIP section will not be copied or distributed in any way.

That means we will not post the transcript and you cannot post it in comments, ask for it in comments, post your email address to send it to people, etc."

Hope you can understand and take this, Im in the same position as you that have missed it since both me and Hanna did that... =(

 "Here's another article about TH and their triumphal performance at Parc de Princes

Tokio Hotel rockt ganz Europa
Seit vergangenem Sonntag ist ‘Tokio Hotel’ endgültig die wohl erfolgreichste deutsche Band der Jetzt-Zeit. Bei ihrem Auftritt im ‘Parc de Prince’-Stadion in Paris feierte Bill Kaulitz und Co. mit 30.000 meist weiblichen Fans. Nach ihrem umjubelten Gastspiel in den USA im vergangenen Monat rockt ‘Tokio Hotel’ nun auch Europa, denn Paris war nur der Auftakt ihrer Tour.

30.000 kreischende Fans begrüßten Tokio Hotel am Sonntagabend auf der Bühne im ehemaligen WM-Stadion von 1998. Beinahe ebenso viele eindeutige Angebote bekam der Frontmann der Band, Bill Kaulitz, von der französischen Fangemeinschaft: "Bill isch liebe dich", kreischten die süßen Französinnen auf deutsch.

Neben dem großen Erfolg von ‘Tokio Hotel' war das Konzert auch ein großer Akt der Völkerverständigung. Denn Bill, Tom, Gustav und Georg performten ihre Lieder auf deutsch, und das mitten im sonst so Fremdsprachen-unfreundlichem Frankreich. Zuvor hatten Fans tausende Briefe an die Plattenfirma und Medien geschickt, dass die vier Jungs aus Hannover unbedingt in ihrer Heimatsprache singen sollen.

Dieses Phänomen ist allerdings nicht neu. Bei ihr ersten Tour in den USA Anfang Mai wünschten sich auch viele amerikanische Fans die Songs von ‘Tokio Hotel' in Original. Zudem lernen viele der ‘Tokio Hotel'-Liebhaber extra deutsch, um die Texte verstehen und mitsingen zu können. Auch am gestrigen Abend bei dem 90-minütigen Auftritt jodelten viele Fans die Lieder im Chor mit. Sollte sich dieser Trend nun auch auf der anstehenden Europa-Tour fortsetzen, könnte die schwere deutsche Sprache eine wirkliche Renaissance erleben.

"Wenn so ein ganzes Stadion deine Songs mitsingt, bekommt man auf jeden Fall Gänsehaut", erklärte Bill. Am 6. Juli bei der zweiten Station in Rom rockt ‘Tokio Hotel' nun auch Italien - und allem Anschein nach darf der Frontmann dann auch wieder auf eine gehörige Portion Gänshaut-Feeling hoffen. (cai)


I'll translate tomorrow, but it doesn't say anything new... it's written quite nicely though. "


Translation


Tokio Hotel rocks across Europe


Since last Sunday is' Tokyo Hotel 'final the most successful German band the now-time. During her appearance in the Parc de Prince' Stadium in Paris celebrated Bill Kaulitz and Co. with 30,000 mostly female fans. After her acclaimed guest performance in the U.S last month rocking 'Tokyo Hotel' now also Europe, because Paris was only the start of their tour.

30,000 screaming fans welcomed Tokyo hotel on Sunday evening on the stage of the former World Cup Stadium in 1998. Almost as many unique offerings got the frontman of the band, Bill Kaulitz, by the French Fangemeinschaft: "Bill isch love you", the sweet French kreischten in German.

In addition to the huge success of 'Tokyo Hotel' the concert was also a great act of international understanding. For Bill, Tom, Gustav and George performed their songs in German, and the middle of the otherwise language unfreundlichem France. Previously fans had thousands of letters to the record company and media skillfully that the four boys from Hanover necessarily in their native language sing.

This phenomenon is not new. In her first tour in the United States in early May also wanted many American fans the songs from 'Tokyo hotel' in the original. In addition to learn many of the 'Tokyo Hotel' extra German fans in order to understand and sing along to. Also yesterday evening at the 90-minute appearance jodelten many fans the songs in the choir. If this trend is now also on the forthcoming European tour to continue, there could be a serious German experiencing a real renaissance.

"If such a whole stadium mitsingt your songs, you get in any case goose bumps," said Bill. On 6 July for the second station in Rome rocks' Tokyo Hotel 'now Italy - and apparently, the front man then back to a portion of Gänshaut feeling hope. (Cai)

Thanks so much to Beck for this translation from the Danish magazine Vi Unge.


Bill Kaulitz is a guy to be friends with!

It’s from the Danish magazine called “Vi Unge”. The article is about guys to be friends with, and the magazine chosed Bill to be one of them.

I’ll just translate it:


Bill is the sensitive kind of friend and you can share everything with him. He will always be there for you when your boyfriend takes off or when your parents are stupid. He’s a dreamer, and it’s for sure that he want’s you to listen to his new poems. He’s totally loyal so if you win his friendship you’ll have it forever.


POSITIV: Bill started wearing make-up when he was 10 years old, so he can for sure help you with your eyeliner and make it perfect. And a bonus is, that he can help you learning German.


NEGATIV: It’s for sure that you’ll get killer-mails from millions of fans, who would like to see you dead, so THEY can become Bill’s new best friend.


BILL SAYS (the boble): “I don’t think I have gotten any new friends the last five years. Unfortunately I have met many people who went to the press about me. That’s why I don’t easily trust people”.


DID YOU KNOW: That Bill’s best friend is Andreas, and that Andreas also is best friends with Bill’s twinbrother, Tom?


That was it. Hope you print it
