BEHIND THE WORLD
A film by Oliver Schwabe

At the age of nine, twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz from Magdeburg decided to become famous. At the age of twelve, they form a band together with Gustav Schäfer and Georg Listing, who will take over the world as of 2005 under the name Tokio Hotel. They are amazed, ridiculed, hated and revered ….

The success is gigantic: Platinum in 68 countries, sold out concerts and Bill becomes a style icon.

Rich and famous in their early 20s, the twins fly to Los Angeles by private jet, leaving behind thousands of devoted fans and a life behind protective walls. They want their freedom back … without knowing what the future holds.

The film delves into the lives of the band, accompanying Bill and Tom through Californian deserts and visiting Gustav and Georg in their hometown, Magdeburg, on the banks of the river Elbe.. They talk about the price of success, the inseparability of twins, about love, sexuality, home and music. The band comes together in a Berlin studio to produce their new album and to prepare for their next world tour.

With steely determination and a lifetime of experience already, the band follows their childhood dream: the pop fairy tale that is Tokio Hotel continues…

Tokio Hotel: Bill, Tom Kaulitz and the Federal Chancellor

Last night, also Bill and Tom Kaulitz of Tokio Hotel guests in the Radio Bremen Talk show “3nach9”. A week before the Bundestag election, political confessions and their consequences – the wildness and sexyness of Chancellor Angela Merkel …

The two 28-year-old Tokio-Hotel-Masterminds made no secret of their preference: they preferred Chancellor Angela Merkel and the CDU. Not all fans would find this good. Bill Kaulitz, who lives with brother Tom in Los Angeles, said: “This is such a German phenomenon, if you do it in Germany, then a lot of people are amazed and say, Oh God, now they say so who whom to vote and great, while that is quite normal in America.

Their 28th birthday on September 1st, had the two a “wild 24 hours” in Berlin celebrating with friends. “This year, we were here a lot because we had flown a lot of back and forth much at the beginning of the year. and now we are back again because we are preparing the tour.

In the talk show, the identical twins also explained why they moved their to Los Angeles, how they look at Germany and how the development from the hypsy teen band to the internationally recognized indie pop band took place. More in the video.

They choose CDU – and get anger from fans

Tom and Bill Kaulitz are Angela Merkel fans and choose the CDU. This is not a good thing for many fans.

Tom and Bill Kaulitz (28, “Dream Machine”) are not exactly the typical CDU voters: young, wild and not just unconventional in fashion, the two Tokio Hotel stars would not be intuitively attributed to the conservative camp. And yet, both are professing Merkel fans. A setting, which is not only good for their fans. In the talk show “3nach9” of Radio Bremen, Bill Kaulitz said: “The fans do not always like that. I have posted a picture on Instagram – this is the picture with the fewest likes”“.

Their political opinion conceal the two but nevertheless not – and also do not understand why the many German celebrities do. “I think this is a German phenomenon. In America, for example, it is quite normal for people from the entertainment sector to share their political opinions,” says Bill Kaulitz.

On Instagram, the singer also encourages his fans to vote, without promoting his opinion. In a new short video, he says, “I think it’s cool to have a choice because we live in a country where we are fortunate enough to be able to make a decision I hope do you too “.

Tokio Hotel: Dream Machine

Everything starts with a thought and suddenly you are dancing through your own wonderland full of fruits and sweets! Friendship, respect, an almost unshakable self-awareness in one’s self, the vision of being, the curiosity of life, an insatiable thirst for development, to create something together, to achieve and to experience …

If you look at Tokio Hotel, it is all these qualities that form the basis and the impetus of an incomparable career. The career of a German band, which simply does not fit into any drawer. And so also the one or the other tried hard, Bill and Tom Kaulitz, Georg Listing and Gustav Schäfer always remained the architects of their world. After more than a decade in the international music business, 70 platinum, 160 gold awards, more than 110 international and national prizes, and over 7 million sold phonograms, Tokio Hotel will release their new art project and fifth studio album “Dream Machine” on March 3, The proof that they are always able to reinvent themselves.

“Dream Machine” opens the door to the new sound world of Tokio Hotel. A world with high mountains, deep valleys, wild rivers, dense forests and endless expanses. A world that pulsates, glows in neon colors and club lights – light, playful, spherical and enthralling. Built on a sound foundation, a symbiosis of alternative indie pop, analogous Retro-synths, modern beats and strong Baselines, without rules. “This is the album that we always wanted to make – just us four, without anyone chatting us. We started with the last record. Since we have tried and fueled self-consciousness. At “Dream Machine” we knew right from the beginning that we were doing it alone. We did not need any producer in between or any songwriters. We did not feel like we needed this back-up. We felt able to have full control, creativity, the songs and what we wanted to make and say – in sound, in production, and also with our lyrics. That is why it is not only our dream album, because no one is talking to us anymore, but also because, as a band, we were finally able to realize ourselves honestly musically, “explains Bill.

Sweet Memories with Tom Kaulitz!

Bill Kaulitz, together with his brother Tom Kaulitz, found himself in their old home. Of course, he kept his fans up to date with many snapshots as his Christmas party. And earlier the 27-year-old presented their fans also a sweet memory of the two Tokio hotel stars…

Tom Kaulitz still does not have (use) his own account on Instagram, which is why the fans of Tokio Hotel are of course all the happier when Bill Kaulitz posts snapshots with his twins every now and then. A few days ago it was for the fans to imagine that the singer again traveled to his old home. He posed a picture of packed suitcases, and wrote that he had to say goodbye to Los Angeles. Shortly thereafter the singer found himself at a Christmas market in Berlin and drank here, quite traditionally, egg nog and mulled wine. With whom the 27-year-old celebrated Christmas, however, he has not betrayed. Only that his twins brother was by his side, that was not to be overlooked by the fans of TH.

Children’s photo by Bill and Tom Kaulitz

Instagram saw a special surprise for the band’s followers. Bill Kaulitz shared a sweet memory with his fans. He posted a snapshot on which he and his twin brother Tom Kaulitz can be seen as small children. The two radiate happy in the camera and stir dough. Of course, the fans start to wonder about who’s who on the sweet snapshot. In any case, the 27-year-old had a lot of fun and lots of time for his family. From March, the guys of Tokio Hotel will start their Dream Machine Tour. And until then the German fans of the band can look forward to the twins once again making a trip to their old home.
