Tokio Hotel is back after 5 years of absence
Even though they had fame, money and recognition after the hit of their album “Humanoid”, the German band Tokio Hotel decided to take a break and after five years of absence they’re back in 2014 with “Kings of Suburbia” which they plan to regain time.
For Bill and Tom Kaulitz, as much as for Georg Listing and Gustav Schäfer, members of Tokio Hotel, which was formed in 2003; taking a break from their busy public life what was they needed to be able to continue, since they felt an artistic block. “After working nonstop for several years we reached a point were we could no longer do anything new, it was hard for us to write, we didn’t have anything to say and that’s why we decided to take a break; we’ve never withdrew completely”, Bill noted.
During their visit in Mexico the band said that during this “free” time they dedicated to live, primary, in a normal way, without flashes in their faces, live like the young guys they are, even though it was also the right moment to start working again on their new album.
That’s how the band knew how to enjoy their time, and didn’t want to rush the finish of the album, which they said it was an addition because they were able to work more than on any other record they’ve made. “This time that we were away it was important for us; it made us write again, to be able to travel and know more places and have more experiences to talk about”, Tom said.
That’s how the band presents “Kings of Suburbia”, an album they assure have a different path from their usual work, with more electronic sounds, something they’ve never done before.
They are aware that these changes can bring them more followers, but also there will be people who will not agree with the changes; however they don’t seem to care, since they assured that as long as they imprint on each song what their creatives mind are telling them, they hope their real fans stick with them.
“When we started to do this record we didn’t have any expectation of what we wanted to create or what path we wanted to have, it was more natural, it just came out; we didn’t decided deliberated that it was going to be more electronic, we didn’t sat down and choose it” Tom added.
For Bill, “Kings of Suburbia” is a feeling that means everything and nothing at the same time. “The album is a sample of how the past influences the present, with more intense influences and autonomy of decision”.
