German Rock Band Tokio Hotel Making “Scream” Music Buzz
1-Jun-2008
Written by: Claudine Paul

Tokio Hotel makes a buzz in America.


Not too many music bands make the front pages of the New York Times; however, not every band is the Rock German quartet known as Tokio Hotel.

The Associated Press reports that the international famed boy band have started to create a frenzied teen buzz here in the States. Recently having completed a successful U.S promotional tour in support of their first American CD release, Scream, the band hopes to replicate their worldwide popularity and music sales which currently totals over two million.

Being the first German band to enter the U.S Billboard charts in over 20 years, the band's public awareness can be mostly attributed to the Internet, where, for example, they are currently the top searched music band signed to a label on YouTube. Besides having over 100,000 videos on the Internet, the band also features weekly filmed updates on the Web, are visually diverse in appearance, and are all under the age of 20.

Having formed in 2001, with over seven years in the music business, Tokio Hotel have now set their sites and hopes on becoming successful in America.

The club fans have much to learn from fans of Tokio Hotel, which is apparent from Tokio Hotel concert at the Parc des Princes on 21 June 2008, on the occasion of the Feast of Music. Ambiance survoltée, fan actions made by the fans in agreement with the organizers of the event, impeccable logistics that enabled the realization of their balloons project ... Everything went perfectly well!

While Tokio Hotel offers books of German, fans could they not offer courses of "fan"?


Tokio Hotel au Parc des Princes : des fans exemplaires

Les fans club ont beaucoup à apprendre des fans de Tokio Hotel, c'est qui ressort du concert de Tokio Hotel au parc des Princes du 21 juin 2008 à l'occasion de la fête de la musique.

Translated by  myown Les membres du groupe Tokio Hotel sont-ils menacés de surmenage? Quatre lycéennes ont scruté des dizaines de vidéos, observé autant de photographies et sont persuadés que le quatuor allemand est au bout du rouleau. "Ils sont cernés, ça se voit, ils n'ont plus la petite flamme de leurs débuts", racontent Flore Solène, Laëtitia et Cloé, 15 ans. Il y a d'abord eu les extinctions de voix du chanteur, les concerts annulés et plus récemment cette scène en Allemagne où Bill Kaulitz aurait chanté du bout des lèvres accompagné d'une bande son. Sans oublier les paroles de chansons que les admirateurs passent à la loupe: "On est obligés de parcourir 100 mers, après nous serons enfin libres!"

Alors à l'heure où Universal reçoit des dizaines de pétitions réclamant des concerts aux quatre coins du monde, elles se mobilisent pour qu'on accorde au groupe... des vacances. Depuis deux mois, le blog qu'elles ont créé pour "responsabiliser les fans" a reçu 13 501 visites et des centaines de commentaires y ont été déposés. Certains proposent leur aide comme Lyly: "Mes parents sont, comment dire, haut placés, je vais voir s'ils ont des contacts chez Universal. D'autres, à l'image de Nana, se montrent plus inquiets "Vous avez vraiment bien réfléchi à ce que vous faites? Vous pourriez mettre leur carrière en danger!"

Universal en ligne de mire


En rentrant du lycée, Flore Solène, Laetitia et Cloé ont pris l'habitude de rédiger des lettres destinées au groupe, à leurs agents et à leur maison de disque. "Nous voulons prévenir Tokio Hotel de notre initiative. Il faut qu'ils sachent que nous voulons les inscrire durablement dans l'histoire de la musique. Nous ne souhaitons pas qu'ils coulent en voulant en faire toujours plus", résume Solène.

Elles ne sont cependant pas les premières à se préoccuper du devenir du groupe. Des fans allemands ont lancé une pétition sur Internet sur le thème "sauvons Tokio Hotel". Associées à cette pétition, les quatre françaises ambitionnent de la faire signer par un maximum de fans. Elles projettent aussi d'organiser des réunions de discussion sur ce sujet dans toutes les villes de France mais aussi au Canada, en Espagne ou encore aux Etats-Unis. Le blog des jeunes filles reçoit d'ailleurs des visiteurs du monde entier parmi lesquels certains ont accepté de traduire leurs textes en Portugais, en Allemand et en Espagnol. "Avec 30 000 signatures, Universal n'aura pas d'autre choix que de nous écouter. Ils relâcheront un peu la pression sur le groupe", assurent les jeunes filles.

"Nous n'avons même pas le temps d'ouvrir tout le courrier concernant Tokio Hotel, répond-on chez Universal. Nous envoyons souvent les lettres directement en Allemagne." Pour ce qui est des dates de concerts, la maison de disque est formelle :"rien dans les contrats ne les oblige à faire des dates et des tournées. Donc cela ne nous concerne pas directement."

Tokio Hotel sera en concert samedi au Parc des Princes. Bill Kaulitz chantera-t-il en play-back? Les fans du groupe, réputés exigeants, veilleront.

Quick trans:
There are 4 French Tokio Hotel fans who created a blog who's named "ensemble nous sauvons Tokio Hotel" (together we will save Tokio Hotel) the put on together some videos and pics were in their eyes you see the band completely burnedout etc they want the boys to go on holidays, they alsow want to organise some meetings in every city in France, in Spain, in Canada and the USA and they alsow have alot of internationl fans on their blog they want to collect more than 30.000 signatures cause they think if they could collect that much of signatures Universal wouldn't have any choice than to listen to them

Google trans:
Members of the group Tokio Hotel are at risk of burnout? Four lycéennes have scrutinized dozens of videos, observed as many photographs and are confident that the German quartet is at the end of their tether. "They are identified, it is, they no longer have the small flame of their debut," Flora told Solène, Laëtitia and Cloé, 15 years. There is first of all extinctions had the voice of singer, concerts cancelled and more recently in Germany this scene where Bill Kaulitz have sung lip accompanied by a soundtrack. Without forgetting the lyrics of songs that fans spend the magnifying glass: "We are obliged to travel 100 seas, after we are free at last!"

So at a time when Universal receives dozens of petitions calling for the concerts around the world, they are mobilizing to grant that the group ... holidays. For two months, the blog they created to "empower fans" received 13 501 visits and hundreds of comments have been filed. Some offer their assistance as Lyly: "My parents are, how to say, high places, I'll see if they have contacts at Universal. Others, like Nana, are more worried" You really well thought about what you do? You could put their careers in danger! "

Universal in Sight


In returning from school, Flora Solène, Laetitia and Cloé have taken the habit of writing letters for the group, their agents and their home record. "We want to prevent Tokio Hotel to our initiative. They must know that we want to register permanently in the history of music. We do not want to sink wanting to do more," summed Solène.

They are not the first to be concerned about the fate of the group. German fans have launched a petition on the Internet on the theme "Save Tokio Hotel". Coupled with this petition, the four French ambition to make it signed by a maximum of fans. They also plan to organize meetings of discussion on this subject in all cities in France but also in Canada, Spain or the USA. The blog girls also receives visitors from around the world some of whom have agreed to translate their texts in Portuguese, German and Spanish. "With 30 000 signatures, Universal will have no other choice but to listen to us. They bond a little pressure on the group", provide girls.

"We do not even have time to open all mail on Tokio Hotel, meet on at Universal. We often send letters directly to Germany." As far as gigs, the house disc is formal: "nothing in the contracts did not require them to make dates and tours. So it does not concern us directly."

Tokio Hotel will be in concert Saturday at Parc des Princes. Bill Kaulitz sing there in play-back? Fans of the group, known demanding, see to that.

A very different mood will be set for Saturday (June 28). Starting with the Brazilian rhythms of Carlinhos Brown and Ivete Sangalo and then moving on to the main stage to rock to the beat of two greatly successful bands: El Canto del Loco and Tokio Hotel.

The Swedish indie of Mando Diao will offer an alternative when they take over the Hot Stage, until Carl Cox and Cristian Varela’s electronic beats invite faithful listeners to gather ‘round their tables right at midnight.

Shakira will heat up the Friday night of July the 1st with her Latin pop. The Colombian star will perform her most popular songs after Jamiroquai, Stereophonics and Orishas have pleased the crowd with their particular styles.

The entire google translation:

The concert Saturday evening at the Parc des Princes undoubtedly mark the dedication of these young rockers débridés: Tokio Hotel has never been so high ....

From Trabendo at Parc des Princes in just two years, only one of many records exploded by Tokio Hotel. Achieving a blackmail an entire generation in German, even when Krafterk were waived, namely impose guitars at a time when they are overwhelmed by the thought synths, implode all sales records and rekindle the flickering flame of "manias" as good old days of the Bestlesmania, all the kids from Tokio Hotel are reached.


In just two years of existence and despite-or through - their rock VA (German version) group of twins Magdeburg this year has beaten all records of sales and popularity. In this furious storm Tokiohotelmania, here's "A" in German as "Z" as "Zimmer 483" small lexicon of anything that really need to know about Bill, Tom, Georg and Gustav.

A: GERMAN
From the very first concert at Trabendo in Paris last summer, it was already a halu ALL french fans sang songs in German by heart… even if they did not speak a word of German. The German contributes to the phenomenon Tokio Hotel… even with the french accent!
Bill: "We did not expect at all that even in our greatest dreams! I have never imagined such a success and have as many fans in
France who, in addition, sing our songs in German. It was very surprised and it makes us really warm heart

B: BILL
Bill Kaulitz, singer and guitarist twin brother Tom, was just 18 years. His hair discolored by scanning crows, its makeup, its fragility, its ambiguity and its neo-goth look between Robert Smith and Marilyn Manson contribute significantly to the phenomenal success of the group. By the way, like Cure and Manson, a portion of fans adopted and reproduced as closely as possible the style of Bill.

C: COMPOSITIONS
Bill: "All our songs are written in cooperation with our producers, there would never come to the idea of singing stuff written by others who have nothing to do with us. In a song, there must be something inside for personal sing comme il faut. Often producers have an idea, but sometimes it is us. It meets and on hump together. And after the rights are shared, it depends securities, depending on the importance of everyone's job. "

D: DESTROY
In their very first clip "Shrei," we see a destroyer villa. Yet in life, Tokio are rather cool guy.
Bill: "It was a house that should be destroyed, it was razed two weeks after the shooting. But it does not really about what happens during our concerts.
I do not hate to break a hotel room, for example. Obviously, it would please me! But on the other hand, I'm too Radin, I not pay for repair after all. So the coup I do not. "

E: REGISTRATION
According to our information, recording the latest CD could sometimes be an excuse to party.
Bill: "We recorded the album in the country.
Tom: We must still say that there is an apartment above the studio where we lived and that was the big brothel! Each week
there was a housekeeper passing and cleaning at Kärcher! "

F: FANS
Bill: "There is always amazed at what fans can do for us. From time to time is very impressive, but it
makes us very happy, sometimes we even find it hard to believe it! "
Tom: "Personally I am super content when girls shout my name!" (Laughter)

G: GEORG & GUSTAV
Georg: "In fact Bill and Tom are rock together for a long time really, since the age of 7 years. With Gustav, we met at the conservatory and it was quickly
played every two And one night we went to see Bill and Tom playing in this
club Gröninger Bad and to hear it was obvious that they needed a hand. We
went to see them backstage and the group was born that way. "

H: NINA HAGEN
With Nena, who sang the immortal "99 Luftbaloons" in the early 80's, Nina Hagen is a very rare German influence of Tokio Hotel. Character whimsical and frosty, it had been able to dance the planet with its "African Reggae"
Bill: "Nina Hagen was really brilliant. Nena also, even if it is more pop and less rock. Me, Me, I'm fan total of Nina and Nena, since the age of eight years. "

I: THE Ï
When the promo of the album and the tour will be completed, what dream?
On an island paradise… and pretty girls!
Tom: "I dream of a remote island with plenty of sunshine, a dream beach of white sand, clear water and turquoise and long naps.
And pretty girls! For me the summer often means going out with one or more chicks. With Bill and parents, spent all our summers
in these mega-destinations in southern Spain. There was such a concentration of pretty girls that n It was not difficult to seduce
some of them. "

J: TWINS
Bill and Tom were born 10 minutes apart
Bill: "I'm still a little more time because I went back again in the belly of my mother, so it lasted a little
longer. Normally there are only two or three minute intervals.
It's great to have a twin brother. We do everything together, it's true, but we started making music at the
same time. We have the same interests, so this is not a calamity, au contraire.
Tom: Often brothers and sisters do not agree very well, did not understand. But we are twins. And as we have the same
interests, it's great to work together. "

L: LAFEE
With its powerful and hit rock, with its charming and perfect German, Belle Lafee appears to be the female response to the
group of Magdeburg. But the top of its 17-year-Lafee threat t'elle the media power of Tokio Hotel?
With his eyes on fire, Belle Christina Klein cartonne in any case on the momentum of his second CD "Jetzt Erst Recht."

M: MAGDEBURG
Bill: "In fact Magdeburg, it's really not as terrible city. Here above, it is really all agree. It is true that we have all grown up, we
will live forever, but we n'imaginons not at all to spend our whole life. Serious, that is not a city that wants to visit when you do
tourists in Germany. It is a hole total boring and especially for youth. "

N: NEXT
Next, the next step for TH, with the release of "Scream", their first CD in English panache joyfully their first two albums in
Germany, is the conquest of England and New World: America.
Bill: "It will turn, turn. We will go to a max of countries where we are never again go play and make the promo. For the moment,
we concentrate a lot on the United Kingdom because it is a great step forward for a German group to succeed there. "

P: PARENTS
Parents of Georg and Gustav frangins have affirmed from the outset as the most fervent supporters of the group.
Bill: "Our mother is an artist, she painted canvases. Our parents are divorced. And our stepfather is a musician. He plays
acoustic guitar and it was he who led us to the music. We have made every available. At home, he had all the equipment
possible.
Tom: Moi I put the guitar and amp in my room, it was royal. He helped me to learn music. "

A: ROCK
Tom: "Our sound is fast and powerful. It is also causing emotional.
It's good rock German. It has always tried to create our own style that remains original. Since the very beginning of the group, is
seven years, it was always made up our music. So far, we have sung a single cover, it was "Instant Karma" by John Lennon and it
was a sampler for the benefit of Amnesty International where we also found U2 and Green Day.
Bill: Doing our own thing, create our own style and our son has always been our priority. "

S: SPRING NICHT (DO NOT SAUTE)
Bill: "We have listened to our hearts because last year we received many letters and e-mails from our fans, we were on the
forums on the Internet and it was found that suicide was a thing to which many people thought, not always seriously, but some
feel really pass the act. It is a subject that is present very early on in the heads of teenagers. It happens as a result of its first
failure, loss of a loved one and you no longer know what holds us in life? This is an issue that we wanted to deal with because he
has touched. "

T: TOM
Tom Kaulitz, the twin of Bill is the guitarist of the group. His look is light years from that of his brother.
Far from the neo-gothic, with its locks and its cool clothes wide, Tom belongs to the galaxy of riders,
surfers and other skaters.
Tom: "The music is my biggest passion, my dream kid. And today I have the privilege to accomplish this
dream in the best conditions. I wake with music and I layer with music, I play facing a great public, I
could not imagine doing anything else. "

U: UNIVERSAL
With the global success, the rock Tokio Hotel is aimed at kids a host of nations: the muscular rock and fun has become universal
spraying the passage language barriers.

V: VIDEOS
Since the first clip from "Shrei" Tokio Hotel has used its advantage of the offensive weapon of video-clip to capture new sonic
territories.

W: WIR STERBEN NIEMALS AUS (WE DO NOT DISPARAITRONS)
Bill: "This song does not speak only to stay together all our lives. It responds rather to the question: "What will become us after
our death?" I thought a lot for me and each person is on Earth is there to leave something behind her when she died. I can not
imagine that everything is finished after death and that is nothing left of us. I believe that every person, famous or not, leaves
something to the day when she leaves. "

Z: ZIMMER 483
Tom: "The idea of title, it's time for our vacation in Spain last year where we decided to rest and write songs at the same time.
We had rented a house in a little dilapidated Spain, which bore the number 483, that's where we wrote the first title of our
second album "Wir Sterben Niemals Aus." It was found that characterized it well this new album. "
