The film tells the heroic story of the former teen band Tokio Hotel. While Gustav and Georg have remained faithful to their homeland Magdeburg, the twins Bill and Tom Kaulitz now live in LA. A Million records sold, 68 times platinum, a German and later an international teenage generation forfeited the East German guys. Thousands of kids around the world to learn German – because of Tokio Hotel.

An incredible story that not only attracts fans in its spell.

The film embarks on the real Pop-tales and shows the production, preparation of interviews, the world tours, the press data Backstage situation at concerts, business meetings and strategy meetings. Always from the internal perspective of the band that is entirely self-determined. We look beyond the world of Tokio Hotel. We do not wait for the concert, we are with the band for the concert.

Bill, Tom, Gustav and Georg talk about the reality behind the pop business. Desires, fears, stress but also happiness, friendship and Private life is discussed.

The film allows a view directly into the heart of Gustav, Georg, Tom and Bill, and shows the closeness to the protagonists, like the dream to be a star could be true.

Tokio Hotel’s Bill Re-emerges As Billy,
Drops New EP ‘I’m Not OK’

Bill from Tokio Hotel rises from the ashes as a solo artist under the new moniker Billy. Heartbreak has a funny way of killing your former self and forcing you to come alive as someone else entirely. After releasing 2014’s Kings of Suburbia LP with Tokio Hotel and performing songs from it on a world tour, Billy decided to go rogue for his next project, and it’s personal. Last month, he released a song titled “Love Don’t Break Me” from his debut EP I’m Not OK out today. Billy tells the song is about his last relationship. “All my songs on my solo EP are pretty much autobiographic,” he said. “When I wrote the songs I was at a pretty dark place mentally. Someone really fucked up my heart and I didn’t feel like myself for a long time. I guess I needed to get it out of my system and turn it into something good so I went in the studio and wrote and sang about it.” His favorite lyric off the record is the opening line: “I’m tired of fighting. It really messed me up this time.”

On going solo, Billy saysit just felt like it was long overdue. I had these songs that I could only sing on my own because it’s about something that happened to me. It would have been selfish to put that on a Tokyo Hotel record and music wise it wouldn’t fit. The songs are way more pop and danceable than what I do with the band. It’s a whole different side of me. Also I think that the timing was right and the energy. I felt like I’m ready to do it.” Along with the EP, Billy shared a multi-media hybrid art project which includes a fine art photo book. “I wanted the freedom to explore the other areas in my life that I am passionate about like Art and Fashion and felt that a pure music project wouldn’t fulfill my vision as a solo artist,” he said. “I felt like it needed more than just the music.” Billy says the EP “shows all the different phases and moods of a heartbreak,” adding “I really just hope it gets to the people. That it touches them and makes them cry, laugh and dance.” One of the more emotional songs fans can cry, laugh and dance to is “Not Over You.” “I feel like it takes guts to admit that you are not over someone and to be that honest,” he said of the song, “and at the same time dance to the beat while you admit that you are still not ok.”
